  In the first home start of quarterback Bo Nix's Auburn career, the true freshman had to carry the load for his offense the majority of the night. Nix threw for 207 yards and a touchdown, No. 10 Auburn ran for 172 yards after amassing just 20 in the first half and the Tigers' defense dominated in a 24-6 victory over Tulane on Saturday night. With a broken game clock already making for a slow and low-energy start to the game, the teams combined for 86 yards of offense across the first nine drives, with Tulane kicking a field goal on its opening series and Auburn (2-0) losing a fumble on its second.

After Tulane's first scoring drive, Auburn's defense locked down the Green Wave (1-1), allowing minus-3 yards over the next four possessions. A week after leading the Tigers to a last-second victory over Oregon last week in Texas, Nix found Will Hastings for a 31-yard touchdown pass two minutes into the second quarter to give Auburn the lead. The Tigers scored on back-to-back drives, with Nix's 40-yard completion to Seth Williams setting them up for a 4-yard touchdown run by Eli Stove. Nix was 19 for 37, tying the fifth-most passing attempts in a game by a freshman quarterback in program history. - AP College Football

  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

  Bo Nix is getting thrust right into the fire as Auburn's new quarterback. Just like his father, nearly 26 years ago. The 16th-ranked Tigers' freshman is set to make his college debut Saturday against No. 11 Oregon in Arlington, Texas, in a nationally televised game with ESPN's College GameDay in town for the game. "I guess it's as good as you can write up, but College GameDay for a freshman walking in...some people view that as tough, but I kind of see it as fun just because it's what you prepare for," Nix said. "I mean, why else would you play if you can't play at the highest atmosphere, environment and all that stuff? It will be fun, and we'll be ready to go." At least he had significant warning before being thrust into such a high-stress situation. His dad and high school coach, Patrick Nix, came off the bench for Auburn in the 1993 Iron Bowl, facing fourth-and-15 after a knee injury to starter Stan White.

Patrick Nix responded with a 35-yard touchdown pass to Frank Sanders to spark a come-from-behind, 22-14 win over rival Alabama and complete an 11-0 season for an Auburn team that was ineligible for the postseason. He then took over the starting job the following season. This won't necessarily be quite so dramatic. Bo Nix arrived at Auburn as the nation's top-rated dual threat quarterback, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Then he beat out redshirt freshman Joey Gatewood for the starting job in preseason camp. Auburn hasn't started a freshman quarterback in a season opener since Travis Tidwell in 1946. That streak will end against the Pac-12 North favorites. - AP College Football

  Prince Tega Wanogho came to Alabama wanting to be the next LeBron James. He became Auburn's left tackle instead. Wanogho now is the anchor of the 16th-ranked Tigers' all-senior offensive line, some five years after he stepped on a football field for the first time. A native of Delta State, Nigeria, Wanogho came to Alabama as a 16-year-old hoping to land a college scholarship - in basketball. He wound up at Edgewood Academy in suburban Montgomery after getting noticed at a basketball camp. Wanogho then obliged when an Edgewood coach suggested giving football a shot, but he didn't know much about the sport that is king in the state.

He played defensive end at about 225 pounds and quickly started getting interest from football programs, enough so that a reporter asked him if Alabama coach Nick Saban had visited. "I was like, 'Who's Nick Saban?' It's crazy, because everybody thought it was funny," said Wanogho, who also played soccer growing up. "My teammates and coaches. The dude that was doing the interview, he thought it was funny, too. He was shocked because I didn't know who coach Nick Saban was. When I said that, everybody was surprised. "I was like you can't blame me because I came all the way from Nigeria and I'm here playing a new game. I don't really know what goes on here. I didn't even really know how big it was at that time. The whole time I was being recruited, I didn't know how big that was." - AP College Football

  Freshman Bo Nix will be Auburn's starting quarterback in the season opener. Auburn announced coach Gus Malzahn's decision on Twitter Tuesday, officially ending a battle with redshirt freshman Joey Gatewood. Nix will lead the 16th-ranked Tigers against Oregon on Aug. 31 in Arlington, Texas. He was a five-star prospect rated the nation's top dual threat quarterback in the 247Sports composite rankings. Nix's father, Patrick, played quarterback for the Tigers from 1992-95.

The 6-foot-2, 207-pound Bo Nix enrolled in January after leading his father's Pinson Valley High School team to consecutive Class 6A state titles. He set Alabama state career records with 12,000-plus yards of total offense and 161 touchdowns accounted for, including 127 passing and 34 rushing. - AP College Football

  The Reese's Senior Bowl has released their 2020 Watch List for the 71st annual game to be played at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama on January 25, 2020. The Senior Bowl's 2020 Watch List includes athletes from nearly every level of college football. These are the players who we are looking to fill the 110 roster spots that form the North and South squads for the nation's premier all-star game. A player not on the initial list can be added to the watch list during the season and be invited to the 2020 game. - The Reese's Senior Bowl

As far as Preseason Watch lists go, to me and I been at this a while, see and study a lot of trends...this is THE list to be on. Over the years it has grown to support almost three full All-Star games as well. If you made the list but are not selected as one of the 110 invited to the Senior Bowl for whatever reason but you can play, not injured, etc., chances are high you will be invited to another All-Star game.
