The expectations for quarterback Nick Marshall were high when the junior college transfer arrived on The Plains in the summer of 2013. The dual-threat quarterback spent last season breaking down defenses while producing highlight reel plays every game. The Pineview, Ga., native led the Tigers to an SEC Championship and a BCS National Championship appearance in his first season. Marshall’s 2013 game-winning “Prayer in Jordan-Hare” pass to Ricardo Louis earned a 2014 ESPY Nomination.
Updates from Week Eight on former Auburn Tigers now playing professionally in the National Football League led by Ben Grubbs making his 109th consecutive start and a career-long from Cody Parkey.
The Tigers’ defensive back has a team-best five interceptions. Now, Saturday, the two SEC teams with the most interceptons meet at Ole Miss in a Top 10 game where everything is up for grabs.
