It’s been a frustrating year for the Auburn Tigers, mostly because of Bo Nix’s poor play.
The sophomore quarterback was coined a star in the making last season. Nix led Auburn to a 9-4 campaign, including wins over two top-10 teams in Alabama and Oregon.
The Tigers expected Nix to take a major jump forward this season, but it’s been quite the opposite. The Auburn quarterback continues to struggle in the passing game. The same couldn’t be said for his rushing ability.
Nix scored what looks to be the best touchdown of the college football season against Texas A&M on Saturday. Check out the incredible play below.

This may be one of the best quarterback touchdown runs we’ve ever seen. If Nix keeps making plays like this one, the Tigers may be able to pull off the upset of No. 5 Texas A&M on Saturday.
The Aggies are on the brink of a potential playoff selection, but they’ll need some help. They checked in at No. 5, behind Alabama, Notre Dame, Clemson and Ohio State in the latest playoff rankings. The Aggies will be next in line to earn a top-four seed if any of the teams ahead of them lose between now and the final playoff rankings.
Auburn, meanwhile, is 5-3 on the season with just two games remaining. Nix will need to make a few more miracle plays if the Tigers want to move to 6-3 with a win over No. 5 Texas A&M on Saturday.
The Aggies currently lead the Tigers 14-10 at the half. Catch the rest of the action on ESPN.
