Before the seasonEdit

Previous SeasonEdit

With high expectations going into Gus Malzahn's second year on the plains after an SEC Championship and a National Championship berth in his first season, Auburn would race out to a 5–0 (2–0) record reaching a #2 ranking in the nation in the polls. However, the Tigers would suffer a defensive collapse in the latter half of the season in which the Tigers would surrender over 30 points in 7 of their last 8 games. The Tigers high scoring offense struggled to overcome these defensive woes which would end up causing them to drop 5 of those last 8 games on their way to a disappointing 8–5 (4–4) season.

This defensive collapse suffered by the Tigers would lead to the firing of Defensive Coordinator Ellis Johnson followed by the hiring of recently fired Florida head coach Will Muschamp. Muschamp would subsequently let go of assistant coaches Charlie Harbison and Melvin Smith and bring on former Auburn player and alum Travaris Robinson, who worked for him at Florida, and Lance Thompson from Alabama.

DeparturesEdit

The Tigers would lose 18 seniors to graduation as well as 2 juniors who would choose to forgo their senior season in pursuit of an earlier NFL career. The Tigers would lose 12 more players from the 2014 team due to various reasons.

Game information

In their home opener, Auburn played Jacksonville State. This was the debut of Auburn's new jumbotron which is the biggest in college football. In a game that many expected to be a blowout, Jacksonville State hung with Auburn and led at halftime. With 39 seconds left in the ballgame and Jacksonville State leading 20–13, Melvin Ray caught a touchdown from Jeremy Johnson. Jacksonville State got the ball back and took a knee, sending the game to overtime. In overtime, Peyton Barber scored from four yards out putting Auburn ahead 27–20. Jacksonville State got the ball and got it to the 5 yard line. On 3rd Down and Goal, Cassanova McKinzy sacked Eli Jenkins setting up 4th Down and Goal. Jenkins threw a pass to the end zone which was caught out of bounds, so it was incomplete and Auburn had escaped with a 27–20 win in overtime.

Game information

In the fourth game of the season, Auburn took on the Mississippi State Bulldogs. It was Sean White's first start as quarterback for Auburn. The offense and defense both looked improved from the last two weeks, but Auburn had to settle for field goals rather than touchdowns in the red zone. Miscues such as an interception, and a high snap, both in the red zone hurt Auburn's chances in the ballgame, and Mississippi State won 17–9. It was the first time in the Gus Malzahn era at Auburn (including his time as offensive coordinator from 2009–2011) that Auburn had failed to score a touchdown.
