The Auburn offensive line has been a work in progress all season, but since it solidified a starting five, it’s started to improve.

The offensive line ran into a hiccup when its most versatile piece and starting right guard Brandon Council was injured and ruled out for the season against Ole Miss, but Keiondre Jones slotted in for the LSU game and the line continued to improve.

While he hadn’t started until Saturday, Jones had appeared in all of Auburn’s games up to this point.

“To be able to run for 206, to give up no sacks—and there was stress going into this deal, because No. 8, he’s a nightmare, and there’s some other guys that are really good too. To give up zero sacks says a lot about our offensive line,” Malzahn said. “They really answered the bell today. I think that’s the fourth game in a row we rushed for 200 yards; I don’t remember the last time we did that in SEC play four straight times. We did some things we can build on.”
