  12/16/21 - Zakoby McClainSr/2022, Auburn, 6-0, 219 (DS#11 OLB) + More +

  Zakoby McClain will lace 'em up one more time before he heads to the NFL Draft. The Auburn linebacker on Tuesday accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Bowl, which will be played Feb. 3 in Las Vegas. McClain led Auburn in tackles each of the last two seasons and has been an emotional leader on the Tigers' defense during that time. He led the nation in tackles as a junior last year, finishing with 113 in 11 games, becoming the first Auburn player to finish a season averaging double-digit tackles per game since Dontarrious Thomas in 2001. He followed it up with 96 tackles this season, including eight for a loss, and six pass breakups. McClain also earned second-team All-SEC honors this year, making him one of three Auburn players to make the all-conference team. - Birmingham News

  11/15/21 - Anders CarlsonrSr/2023, Auburn, 6-4, 220 (DS#8 K) + More +

  Auburn placekicker Anders Carlson is out for the season with an ACL injury while quarterback Bo Nix had season-ending ankle surgery. Coach Bryan Harsin said that Monday's surgery on Nix was successful, ending his season and his streak of 34 consecutive starts. Carlson and Nix were both hurt in Saturday's 43-34 loss to Mississippi State, when the Tigers blew a 25-point lead. Carlson had made 14 of 21 kicks. "Both of those guys are in good spirits, and it's unfortunate what happened to them," Harsin said. "Those guys have handled it well. Guys on the team know what we need to do to have guys step up and be able to fill those roles and get ourselves ready to play in this next game." Quarterback T.J. Finley, who started five games for LSU as a freshman last season, will start Saturday at South Carolina. - AP College Football

  10/10/21 - Zach CalzadarJr/2024, Auburn, 6-3, 210 (DS#17 QB) + More +

  During a speaking engagement this spring Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher used colorful language to proclaim his team would beat Alabama during coach Nick Saban's career. He fulfilled that promise in his first try since that vow Saturday night, handing the defending national champions their first loss since 2019 in a thrilling upset. "Our team beat a really good football team...and that's what's important to me," Fisher said. Seth Small made a 28-yard field goal as time expired and Texas A&M stunned top-ranked Alabama 41-38 to end the Crimson Tide's winning streak at 19 games. The victory came on Fisher's 56th birthday and is certainly Texas A&M's biggest win since Fisher took over in 2018. "I didn't know what to get him, so we thought as a team that we should get a win for him," Small said. Alabama (5-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) had scored 21 straight points - capped by a TD reception and 2-point conversion grab by Jameson Williams - to take a 38-31 lead with five minutes to go.

Texas A&M (4-2, 1-2) tied it at 38 when Zach Calzada connected with Ainias Smith for a 25-yard touchdown with three minutes left. Calzada was hit as he threw the strike and had to be helped off the field but returned for the next drive after a visit to the medical tent. Calzada returned after the Aggies forced a punt to orchestrate the winning drive, highlighted by a 17-yard pass to Isaiah Spiller before Small finished it off to send fans streaming onto the field to celebrate. "I'm proud of our guys," Fisher said. "We made plays at critical times." Calzada threw for 285 yards and three touchdowns, as the former backup played like a star. Devon Achane returned a kickoff 96 yards for a TD in the third quarter and A&M's defense got after Bryce Young all night. - Texas A&M/AP College Football

  Shedrick Jackson caught a 10-yard touchdown pass from T.J. Finley with 45 seconds remaining, and No. 23 Auburn rallied to beat Georgia State 34-24 on Saturday. Auburn trailed Georgia State by 12 points at halftime and avoided losing to a Sun Belt team for the first time in program history. Finley, an LSU transfer who replaced starting quarterback Bo Nix late in the third quarter, led Auburn (3-1) on a 98-yard scoring drive in the final minutes. Safety Smoke Monday sealed the victory, returning an interception 36 yards for a score on the second play of the ensuing drive. Led by running back Tucker Gregg, Georgia State (1-3) generated 299 yards of offense and 24 points before halftime, but was unable to add to its lead in the final quarters. The Tigers' special teams started the comeback with a touchdown off a blocked punt late in the third quarter, and their defense allowed only 85 yards in a second-half shutout. - Auburn/AP College Football

  Zach Calzada threw for 275 yards and three touchdowns in his first career start to power No. 7 Texas A&M in a 34-0 rout of New Mexico on Saturday. The victory extends A&M's winning streak to 11 games and gives the Aggies a 3-0 start for the first time since opening the 2016 season with six consecutive wins. Calzada was thrust into the job last weekend against Colorado when Haynes King was injured on A&M's second possession. King had surgery this week to repair a broken right leg, leaving Calzada to run the offense.

Calzada looked more comfortable, and the Aggies moved the ball much better Saturday than they did last week while scoring just 10 points in a win over the Buffaloes. They eclipsed their total points from that game in the first six minutes of this one and built a 24-point lead by halftime. Terry Wilson, a transfer from Kentucky who had 559 yards passing in the first two games, threw for just 33 yards Saturday for New Mexico (2-1) while being hurried and harassed all day. He had an interception, was sacked four times and had three passes broken up by A&M's stingy defense. Texas A&M extended the lead to 21-0 when Isaiah Spiller shed three defenders on a 5-yard scoring run with about six minutes left in the second quarter. Spiller had 117 yards rushing to bounce back after running for just 20 yards last week. - Texas A&M Football/AP College Football
