Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said the officials in last Thursday's 20-14 win at Kansas State didn't allow the Tigers to play as fast offensively as they would have liked.
Malzahn, a proponent of spread, fast-paced offenses, said officials were spotting the ball after plays slower than the pace to which his team was accustomed.
However, as pointed out by AL.com, Auburn's average of 2.45 plays per minute against Kansas State was below its season mark of 2.47.
Auburn, which is 3-0 with wins over Arkansas, San Jose State and the Wildcats, hosts Louisiana Tech on Saturday.
Gus Malzahn says B12 officials affected tempo vs. K-State. Spotting ball was "a little bit slower than we were used to."— Mike Herndon (@TheMikeHerndon) September 24, 2014
