  The Tigers' run game was hindered from the get-go, as leading rusher Tank Bigsby attempted to play through the hip injury he sustained in the first quarter of last week's win against Tennessee but was clearly not at 100 percent. The Tigers also had a new-look offensive line, with Austin Troxell in for an injured Alec Jackson at left tackle, while right tackle Brodarious Hamm tried to play through a left knee injury but was subbed out after halftime. Bigsby, who entered the game as the fourth-leading rusher among all FBS freshmen this year, was limited to just 39 yards on 11 carries, including just 7 yards on four first-quarter carries. "Obviously, you can see Tank, he's not close to 100 percent," Malzahn said.

Bigsby's first-quarter rushing numbers were emblematic of the Tigers' overall struggles establishing the run against the Tide. Auburn had just 27 rushing yards in the opening period, averaging 2.7 yards per carry as the offense totaled just 45 yards and failed to sustain drives while regularly finding itself in third-and-long situations. It didn't get much better from there, with Auburn rushing for 30 yards on 10 second-quarter attempts and then minus-4 yards in the third quarter, when Alabama effectively put the game away. By then, Bigsby's day was done. - Birmingham News

  A trio of Auburn offensive starters are questionable for the Iron Bowl after sustaining injuries during the Tigers' 30-17 win against Tennessee. Running back Tank Bigsby, right tackle Brodarious Hamm and left tackle Alec Jackson all left Saturday's win against the Vols with various injuries, the extent of which were not disclosed by head coach Gus Malzahn. Auburn's eighth-year coach did, however, say that all three are currently "questionable" for next weekend's trip to Tuscaloosa to take on top-ranked Alabama. "All three of those guys couldn't really finish the game," Malzahn said. "All three of them, at this point, I'll say will be questionable. That's probably the best way to put it. We'll see as the week goes on as they progress." No. 22 Auburn (5-2) will face No. 1 Alabama (7-0) at 2:30 p.m. Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium, with the game airing on CBS. Bigsby, who has emerged as Auburn's top running back, left the Tennessee game early on after sustaining a hip injury on the Tigers' opening drive. - Birmingham News

  Although Auburn topped Tennessee on Saturday night, the Tigers suffered a few significant setbacks along the way. The Tigers had some key players leave the victory over the Volunteers early due to injury, including true freshman running back Tank Bigsby along with junior right tackle Brodarious Hamm. Their status going forward will be crucial points of interest for Auburn with the Tigers' Iron Bowl matchup with Alabama coming next Saturday. Bigsby suffered an apparent hip injury early in the first quarter of the Tigers' game with Tennessee and wound up being limited the rest of the game.

After starting the game with a pair of carries, Bigsby only had one more carry in the second quarter before exiting the game for good. Bigsby ended the night with three carries for 24 yards. Malzahn explained during the postgame interviews he wasn't sure what Bigsby's status was going into the Iron Bowl week. "I think he tried to come back in for one play and he had to go back out. We'll have to see," Malzahn said. "We had a few injuries that took people out of the game, so we'll have to see where we're at here in just a little bit." - Opelika-Auburn News

  Auburn true freshman running back Tank Bigsby has been nothing short of impressive since his first start in his second college football game. As a result, Bigsby's name has earned recognition for one of the nation's top awards. Bigsby is one of several college football players who were added to the Maxwell Award watch list, the Maxwell Football Club announced Wednesday. The award has been given annually to the outstanding collegiate football player in America since 1937; LSU quarterback Joe Burrow taking home the trophy in 2019.

The 6-foot, 204-pound Bigsby arrived in Auburn as a four-star recruit and wasted little time in proving he was well worth the hype. He started in Auburn's second game against Georgia and has not looked back since, rushing for 503 yards and five touchdowns while also reeling 11 receptions for 84 yards. He's also shown himself to be a dangerous return man, taking 13 returns for 306 yards and having a would-be touchdown against Ole Miss that was taken off the board due to a penalty. Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn spoke highly of Bigsby's play after the Tigers' 48-11 victory over LSU, a game in which Bigsby led the way with 15 carries for 71 yards and two touchdowns. - Opelika-Auburn News

  3 Consecutive 100-yard rushing games have been posted by Auburn RB Tank Bigsby, who joined Bo Jackson in 1982 and Michael Dyer in 2010 as the school's only freshmen with three 100-yard rushing games in one season against SEC rivals. Bigsby ran for 146 yards on 20 carries in a 30-28 victory over Arkansas on Oct. 10, 111 yards and one TD on 16 carries in a 30-22 loss to South Carolina on Oct. 17 and 129 yards and two TDs on 24 carries in a 35-28 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday. In 1982, Jackson ran for 110 yards and one TD on 17 carries in a 24-14 victory over Tennessee, 111 yards on 18 carries in an 18-3 victory over Kentucky and 114 yards and one TD on 17 carries in a 23-22 victory over Alabama. In 2010, Dyer ran for 100 yards on 23 carries in a 35-27 victory over South Carolina, 100 yards on 15 carries in a 24-17 victory over LSU and 180 yards and one TD on 21 carries in a 51-31 victory over Ole Miss. - Birmingham News

  Bigsby has been a revelation in his first year at Auburn, and his showing against the Gamecocks only added to it. He has been otherworldly when it comes to breaking tackles, and according to Sports Info Solutions he has forced a FBS-leading 9.5 missed tackles per 25 carries. Malzahn credited Bigsby for another hard-fought game, adding that he ran with an attitude in eclipsing 100 rushing yards for the second straight week. That achievement was no small feat by the freshman, and it has quickly pushed him to the front of Auburn's stable of running backs and given Malzahn the confidence that he'll be a factor moving forward.

Bigsby didn't catch a pass against South Carolina after impressing as a receiving threat against Georgia and Arkansas, but that didn't leave teammate Eli Stove any less impressed. "I think he's been doing real good since the Georgia game, really. I've seen a lot of potential in him," Stove said. "I've seen he's a hard runner. He's a competitor, too. We've got to feed him. We've got to feed him and get him in the end zone for sure." Bigsby carried the brunt of the load for Auburn at running back against Georgia and Arkansas, but that doesn't have to be the case going forward. Sophomore D.J. Williams played well in the Arkansas victory and averaged 4.25 yards per carry in limited action against the Gamecocks despite still not being 100 percent per Malzahn. Along with Williams, junior running back Shaun Shivers could be back this week to finally provide some much-needed depth. - Opelika-Auburn News

  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
