Gus Malzahn is firmly back in the middle of hot-seat talk after Auburn football blew a 20-point lead in a loss at LSU last Saturday. Now the Tigers have to pick up the pieces and take on struggling Arkansas away from home.
But with the way Arkansas has played this season, is there anything Malzahn can do to win back some fans? SEC Country’s Justin Ferguson and Lauren Shute address that question in this week’s Sound Off, presented by Zaxby’s.
Sound Off: Can Gus Malzahn ease any pressure vs. Arkansas?
Here are some timestamps to guide you:
- Auburn was shut out after halftime at LSU for the first time in its last five losses under Malzahn. The offense didn’t change its game plan after LSU adjusted, and frustrations have reached at a new high on the Plains. Would any result change those feelings in Auburn? (0:15)
- The Tigers will be without their No. 3 receiver the rest of the way as starting sophomore Kyle Davis has been dismissed for “breaking team rules.” Davis didn’t travel for the LSU game, causing Auburn’s receivers to change their plan in Baton Rouge. How will Auburn reset its passing game without a dangerous vertical threat? (3:35)
- Auburn’s defense has had its two worst performances in back-to-back weeks. The Tigers still have a top-10 unit, but the big plays they allowed against Ole Miss and LSU could be cause for concern. What should Auburn fans think about the defense heading into Fayetteville? (6:36)
