Tigers see a little bit of everything in Missouri

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, Ala. -

Rhett Lashlee described the Auburn Tigers' practice Tuesday night as "business-like."

The task is for the Tigers to move past the thrilling Iron Bowl win and focus on the task at hand; specifically, the Missouri Tigers in the SEC championship game.

Auburn hasn't faced Missouri this year, but defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson said they've seen elements of their offense.

"Their quick game is a little bit like Georgia," Johnson said. "Their empty sets and some of the things they do with their route concepts are a lot like Texas A&M, and they like to let the quarterback run the ball on draws and things like Texas A&M. [There's a] little bit of Ole Miss in it, in the running game."

On the other side of the ball, Auburn will against be facing one of the top rushing defenses in the country.

"I think when we played Georgia, they were second in the league. Alabama was first, now Missouri's moved up to second in the league against the rush," said offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee. "This time of the year we've just been playing really good teams, and our offensive line has done a really good job. Pretty much every game this year we've had success running the football."

Auburn has rushed for at least 213 yards in every game but one this season. That was against Mississippi State, where they ran for just 120 yards, but won the game, 24-20.
