Study Hall: Auburn 34, Alabama 28

Advanced stats from Auburn's 34-28 win over Alabama on Saturday.

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

Alabama ate Auburn alive for the most part on passing downs, as I kind of figured they would. Auburn countered by ... almost never falling into passing downs. Good strategy, huh?

Oh yeah, and...

Trips inside 40: Alabama 9, Auburn 4 (not inc. FG return)
Points Per Trip: Auburn 7.0, Alabama 3.1

Score when you have the chance, kids.
