  08/31/19 - QB Bo NixFr/2023, Auburn, (DS#2 QB)

  Bo always knows at Auburn, even a true freshman quarterback by that name. After barely converting a fourth down with a gutsy run in the final minute, Bo Nix threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Seth Williams with 9 seconds remaining as the 16th-ranked Tigers rallied for a 27-21 win over No. 11 Oregon on Saturday night. "He has some savviness to him, there's no doubt," coach Gus Malzahn said of the young quarterback. "When the game is on the line, you've got to make plays, and that's the one thing he showed." On fourth-and-3, Nix rolled to the right, then tucked and pushed forward. Only the nose of the ball, sitting at midfield, was past the chain when officials measured for a first down. "Play of the game," Malzahn said.

"When I saw him run and saw him scrambling, I thought he was going to throw the ball to me," running back JaTarvious Whitlow said. "And then I saw him stick those feet in the ground and cut up. I was like, 'You better get it. You better get it man!" And Nix wasn't done. On third-and-10 from the Oregon 39 and no timeouts, he hit Williams for 13 yards. The receiver got out of bounds with 16 seconds left, with Tigers already in field goal range. But the play-calling head coach wanted to give Williams the chance to make another play - and Nix delivered to put Auburn ahead for the first time. The Tigers, who trailed 21-6 late in the third quarter, delivered another early blow to the Pac-12. They beat the Pac-12's highest-ranked team in a season opener for the second year in a row - No. 6 Washington lost to them 21-16 in Atlanta last year. - AP College Football
