  Tank Bigsby forced 14 missed tackles against Arkansas. "He's very determined," Shaquanna Bigsby said. "Tank is the type of person, even growing up, if there's something that he loves, he wants to complete it. He wants to go ahead and do it until he masters it - whether it's a sport, whether it's his grades, regardless what it is, if it's something that he cares about and enjoys doing it, he's going to make the best out of it. He's always been that way since a kid." That's a trait he inherited from his parents, both of whom share that same desire to master something and "get the job done" when they set their sights on a goal or task at hand. And Bigsby's goals for himself are grand.

He wants to make it to the NFL, of course, but his desire is to do more than just make a career out of playing football. He wants to be great - and in the conversation with the best running backs to come through Auburn. That includes his current position coach, Cadillac Williams, whose own records - such as the program's career touchdown mark - Bigsby hopes to break before his time on the Plains ends. "I think that desire comes from his heart," Wiggins said. "He just - he's got a desire to play the highest level. When he steps on the field, he's one of the greatest competitors that I've ever been around." - Birmingham News

  For Malzahn, the most impressive part of Bigsby's game is his determination despite still learning what it takes to play college football. "He's still learning the plays, he's learning the schemes and the steps and everything that goes with it. One thing he's doing is he's bringing the wood. He's running angry with great physicality and with great effort," Malzahn said. "He seized that opportunity. I really think you'll see him, after the game slows down a little bit and he actually can read things and slow himself down, I think he's - the sky is the limit. "He has that edge. You see him running, and like I said, he's got the potential to really, you know, keep going. That's what's exciting for me."

Bigsby acknowledged the comparison he's received to running backs coach Cadillac Williams, who was one of the Tigers' true stars at running back from 2001 to 2004. Bigsby said he leaves the comparisons between the two to those watching, although he admitted he is working to break all of his position coach's school records. Bigsby has taken nice strides as a true freshman, with the latest being crossing the 100-yard mark on the ground for the first time. He'll look to continue that play Saturday against a South Carolina defense that has only allowed 96 rushing yards per game this year, a task that the true freshman is likely eager to take on. "I am very hard on myself and expect more from myself, but it was real good to have my first 100-yard game in college. I'll continue and hopefully I'll have more to come," Bigsby said. - Opelika-Auburn News

  Auburn running back Tank Bigsby was named to the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll for his performance against Kentucky, the Louisville Sports Commission announced Monday. Bigsby received the recognition following an impressive performance in the Tigers' 30-28 victory over Arkansas. The true freshman led the team on the ground with 20 carries for 146 yards, which included three carries for 25 yards on the Tigers' game-winning drive. He also reeled in four catches for 16 yards and had four kick returns for 106 yards. Bigsby's 268 all-purpose yards set a new school record for a freshman. - Opelika-Auburn News

  Bigsby gained his first experience with college ball when he entered the season-opener against Kentucky. In that game, Bigsby rushed six times for 15 yards, averaging 2.5 yards per carry. Against the Bulldogs, who were ranked fourth in the nation, Bigsby more than doubled his touches and his rushing yards. He touched the ball 15 times. Seven of those touches were carries, and he accumulated 31 rushing yards. The other eight were catches, which impressed Malzahn. "He caught the ball with some really good catches out of the backfield," Malzahn said. With 68 receiving yards, Bigsby was the team's lead receiver, beating out starting wide receivers Anthony Schwartz, who had 57 yards, and Seth Williams, who had 34 yards.

Malzahn also felt Bigsby played well away from the ball, saying he protected "pretty good." Bigsby earned the offensive helmet sticker for the way he competed. While Malzahn did not specify whether Bigsby will continue as the No. 1 running back or if he will drop to No. 2 or No. 3 when Shivers and Williams return to health, he did say that Bigsby is "in a good spot." The game experience Bigsby gained against Georgia can only help the room improve as a whole, Malzahn said, because it helps develop the depth of players Auburn can rely on. - Birmingham News

  Bigsby delivered several of Auburn's biggest moments against the Bulldogs. The true freshman showed he was up for the challenge in his first collegiate start, as he rushed for 31 yards and also had 68 receiving yards and 72 kick-return yards. "That was the best part of the night, just watching him play. That guy is a fighter. I've never really seen anything like it," said quarterback Bo Nix, who completed seven passes to the true freshman. "He was the spark there when we needed one. He made some huge plays there over and over and over. He's the one that really kept us rolling. Really pleased with what we saw out of him. Just have to get everybody playing like Tank." - Opelika-Auburn News

  Auburn updated its offensive arsenal this offseason with the addition of offensive coordinator Chad Morris, as well as a variety of new weapons for sophomore quarterback Bo Nix. Yet it is the Tigers' new Tank that seems to have fans most excited heading into the 2020, as freshman running back Tank Bigsby has generated the most buzz and anticipation since before he even stepped foot on campus. The former four-star recruit, who signed with Auburn during the early signing period last December and enrolled in classes in January, is one of the highest-rated prospects in program history and has a chance to see the field immediately in a retooled backfield that must replace the Tigers' leading rusher from a year ago.

"He's a one-play drive type of guy," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said on signing day. "I mean, from anywhere on the field he can take it to the house. He's got receiver-type skills with his hands. Very excited about Tank. We think he's an impact player. We think he could help us immediately." Since arriving on campus in January, Bigsby has done nothing to make Auburn question that belief, either. "Tank Bigsby is a good worker, and that's the exciting part about it," Auburn strength and conditioning coach Ryan Russell said in April. "He's a talented kid, obviously, but a good worker. (He) loves the game. This game is a lifestyle to him; it's not just a game. He's all about it." - Birmingham News
