Tigers tie season-high with four sacks

first_imgAUBURN – Call off the search party, Auburn found pass rush.After failing to register a sack against South Carolina and with just 12 in its first seven games, Auburn finally got pass from its defensive line in Saturday’s win at Ole Miss.The Tigers tied a season-high with four sacks of Bo Wallace, with three coming from the defensive line.“In some ways it was just individuals stepping up their game a little bit,” Auburn defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson said. “Other things it was working some personnel in there and trying to get the right combination of guys that can get that speed for a pass rush situation.”Auburn sacked Wallace twice during one three-and-out series late in the first half, the first coming from Angelo Blackson on first down, and linebackers Cassanova McKinzy and Kris Frost combined for a sack on third-and-11.“Coming into the game our big focus was to get Bo on the ground, to make Bo uncomfortable and I feel like we really succeeded with that,” McKinzy said. “We knew if Bo could stand back there eating a sandwich, we knew we were going to have a bad game. It wasn’t going to be the game that we wanted.”Gimel President brought Wallace down for a loss of nine yards later in the first half for his first career sack.Montravius Adams registered a sack midway through the third quarter.Elijah Daniel and LaDarius Owens were each originally credited with a sack but it was later amended to a rush by Wallace.“We moved Elijah inside and we’ve got (DaVonte Lambert) outside,” Johnson said. “I thought that Gabe (Wright) got better. We rotated him in a little bit and I thought that he was more productive.“We’ve tried to get the best ones with the skill set and the speed to get it done. At times it was hard to sub because of their pace, but when we were able to get them in the game it certainly helped.”To be sure, some of Auburn’s production was due to Ole Miss being without top offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil. The Rebels are also 12th in the SEC and 103rd nationally with 23 sacks allowed this season.But for an Auburn defense with just 16 sacks all season, including just 9 1/2 from the defensive line, it was a marked improvement for a group Johnson said looked like a pass skeleton earlier this season.“I’d say we’ve gotten better,” Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. “We felt like we needed to put some pressure on the quarterback to have a chance.”last_img read more
