The answer to all three questions is a resounding yes. We open the game with the most impressive opening drive I've seen all season (ok, I didn't see Auburn's first drive, thanks to DirectTV's un-announced game of football wack-a-mole channel surfing). Aaron Murray was almost surgical, especially in the first half. Bobo called a great football game, taking whatever the Auburn defense would give him, which was a lot.
More impressively we were more than average on special teams. Yes, we have to be leading the nation in fair caught punts. Morgan's five PATs were dead straight, high and had no adventure built into them. His one FG was the same and was dead center. Barber's punting is looking better and better, with three inside the 20. Auburn had plenty of opportunities to return kickoffs, but the best they came up with was about 25 yards.
