Auburn football: Best of the week

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn is a day away from its first road game of the season, as it heads to Baton Rouge, La., to take on LSU. With that in mind, it's time to look back at the week that was.

As we've done (and will continue to do) every Friday, this cites the best quotes, stories and videos from Sunday through Thursday. It's obviously an abridged version of the immense number of items produced during the week, but this is supposed to be a short and breezy read, hitting on (what I consider) the highlights.



Quarterback Nick Marshall on his actions prior to taking the field for the final time last Saturday, which would turn out to be the eventual game-winning drive for the Tigers:

"I told the (offense), 'We’re going to score a touchdown.' Then I went down the sideline and told the defense to get us one stop and then we would put them in the end zone."

Ryan White on the possibility of "Star" Robenson Therezie joining him when the team calls upon its "Batman" formation on two-point conversion attempts:

“I'm the Batman. He can be Robin.”


On Sunday, we took an in-depth look at Auburn's game-winning drive against Mississippi State, which saw the Tigers drive 88 yards for the go-ahead touchdown. Relive it again by clicking on the link.

Ryan White has made only four starts at cornerback in his four years at Auburn. Where he has excelled, however, is on special teams. Specifically, he's the Tigers' go-to player when they elect to go for two points following a touchdown. See how the senior has embraced his role as "The Batman."
