Task Organization: The Auburn Tigers will be organized using this week's depth chart.


a) Enemy -

Intelligence reports indicate that the Auburn Tigers' opponent for Week 11 is a Southwestern Athletic Conference team featuring... you know what? It doesn't matter who they're featuring. They're 4-6 in the SWAC and Auburn doesn't need the 25% of its roster (literally (1)!!!) that will be out for this game. They do have a QB named De'Angelo Balla, though, and that's pretty badass. I don't know what his stats are for the year because in my limited (5-10 minutes) of searching I couldn't find any stats for the season. All I found was that he went 16 of 45 for 208 yards in their last game (a victory over Grambling). They'll attempt to take advantage of Auburn's weakened offense, but Auburn starting QB Jeremy Johnson is going to play like a man possessed and the Alabama A&M offense isn't going to be able to do squat against the Auburn defense. Carl Lawson may get the Auburn single-season sack record in this game alone.

b) Friendly -

(1) Higher Unit Mission Two Levels Up: No Change

(2) Higher Unit Mission One Level Up: No Change

c) Civil Considerations:

The local populace will be very supportive of the Auburn Tigers. It is a night game, the final home game of the season, and Senior Night. Hopefully, the home fans are loud and into the game.

d) Attachments & Detachments:

Attachments: Auburn University Marching Band, Auburn Cheerleaders, Aubie the Tiger, Nova and/or Spirit

Detachments: None


The Auburn Tigers Football Team take on the Alabama A&M Bulldogs at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Athens, GA at 1830 hours local time, in order to advance the program's goal of reaching the College Football Post Season.


a) Concept of the Operation.

The football team will play four quarters of fast, physical football against all opponents with each portion of the team performing special duties  assigned to them.

Scheme of Maneuver.

The operation will consist of multiple phases. Phase 1- the planning and preparation phase - begins at the end of the Georgia game and ends with the team departing for the Remain Over Night (RON) site. Phase 2 - the travel phase - begins upon arrival at the RON site and ends with Tiger Walk. Phase 3 - the execution phase - begins upon arrival at the stadium and consists of pre-game warm-ups and game activity. It will end upon completion of the contest. Phase 4 - the recovery phase - begins with post-game locker-room activities and ends upon the team's arrival back at the athletic facility in Auburn.

Offense, the main effort, will conduct fast-paced, minimal communication attacks against the enemy utilizing multiple air and land-based weapons systems. Jeremy Johnson will be starting at quarterback for Auburn in his final game at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn will attempt to use a hybrid hodge-podge of players at running back to get the ground game going while hopefully allowing Jeremy Johnson an opportunity to make some highlight plays through the air, as well. Most of his receivers will be the freshmen and sophomores who will hopefully get a chance to shine, as well. Through speed of maneuver, simplicity in planning, and security of ball-control, the offense will attack the defense and cross the opponent's goal line as quickly and as often as possible.

Defense, a supporting effort, will employ fast/physical assaults on the opponent's offense. I have no idea what Alabama A&M has on offense since stats are hard to come by, but we know from their previous game that they throw a lot of passes. A lot of pass plays means a lot of opportunity for Auburn's defense to get after the QB. I suspect we will not see the starters past halftime, but Carl Lawson still may reach the three sacks he needs to break the Auburn single-season record. Unless Montravius Adams beats him to the QB. He has a shorter route, after all. Whatever Alabama A&M attempts on offense, it's not likely to be successful except on fluke plays or against the bench. Through surprise, mass, and economy of force, the defense will prevent the opposing offense from crossing the Auburn goal line through expending of their downs or through creating turnovers.

Special Teams, a supporting effort, will conduct all kicking and return duties. #Legatron will hopefully not be needed for short field goals and is available for trick plays. Through maneuver, simplicity, mass, and economy of force, special teams will attempt to score points when supporting the offensive efforts and prevent opponents from scoring points while supporting defensive efforts.

Fans, a supporting effort, will conduct themselves in a manner befitting proper sportsmanship standards while still loudly cheering on the Auburn Tigers football team and disrupting the opponents' game plan, rhythms, snap counts, etc.
