Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville

Opening Statement
"We played a good football game, we just came out a little bit short. Our defense played hard, we just didn't do anything with our kicking game. It let us down at times, that's my fault. We must not have worked enough on it, but we will work on it."

On offensive performance...
"We hung in there. That is the best defense we have played and we moved the ball. We had opportunities, we just didn't take advantage. But they are a good team. We fought the crowd noise, I thought that our guys hung in there mentally, and that's what its all about on the road. We just came up a little short."

On kicking game...
"You got to be able to get it through there at times, but that is football. You have got to execute and tonight the kicking game wasn't there for us. They ran that punt back, we made a mistake but that's part of it."

On running game...
"We did pretty good, I thought that we ran the ball well at times. I mean, they are a good defense, and we had four-hundred and fifty yards total on offense, normally you win when you do that. We bogged down, we tried field goals at times, and we just didn't make them."

Auburn PK John Vaughn

On the wind factor...
"As a kicker you have to kick in the wind. They had to kick in the wind, too. I just have to work harder."

On his field goals tonight...
"The last kick in (regulation), I was just trying to hit it and get it there. I didn't make one that long in warm ups, so I just had to hit it hard and hope I got lucky. The one in overtime I just yanked it a little bit and it came out a little bit left."

On unfortunate misses tonight...
"About three of the kicks tonight, when I hit them I thought they were good. I got a little unlucky and they went right or left. The last one tonight, I thought I hit it pretty good and when I looked up I knew I was probably going to need a little bit of luck right here."

 

 

Auburn Offensive Player Quotes

QB Brandon Cox

On the atmosphere in tiger stadium...
"Loud crowd, we couldn't hear out there. We played a good game but we just couldn't come out on top."

On the defensive pressure by LSU...
"They came out and blitzed almost every play. We moved the ball great, offensively we had a lot of yards we just stalled whenever we got near the goal line. We just couldn't punch it in."

RB Kenny Irons

On his frustration...
"The crowd noise affected us. We fought, everybody fought. It's just hard we tried to put it in but they have a great defense."

On the mistakes...
"We can't blame it on one person. Everybody made mistakes. We just have to keep our heads up and get ready for next week."

On his performance...
"Offensive line did a great job. Running behind those guys is easy. I am already in the secondary because they block so well."
