Following the game head coach Les Miles reflected on a dominant effort by his offense, which ran the ball 48 times for 411 yards, including an astounding 228 yards and three scores on the ground from Heisman candidate Leonard Fournette.
Miles indicated his star back was well aware of comments made earlier in the week by Auburn defensive back Ruby Ford, who indicated stopping Fournette "shouldn't be that difficult."
"I think he knew what was said, but who would've thought that it would've happened the first play of the game, right," Miles asked reporters, making reference to Fournette's 71-yard jaunt on the game's opening play from scrimmage.
The Hat enjoyed the effort from his defense as well.
Coordinator Kevin Steele's group held Auburn to just 100 yards passing, 3-of-10 conversions on third downs and generated pressure as five sacks and seven tackles for loss indicate.
"The front stifled Auburn to start," continued Miles. "We're a very fast defense. We're fast coming out of the secondary or the linebacker (group) into the quarterback. Those were fast guys getting to plays."
