  • Auburn's Quan Bray enjoying competition with K-State punt returner Tyler Lockett

    Auburn wide receiver Quan Bray runs 76 yards for a punt return touchdown in the fourth quarter of last month's game against Louisiana Tech at Jordan-Hare Stadium Saturday.

    AUBURN, Ala. — After returning two punts for 98 yards and one touchdown in Auburn’s 45-17 victory over Louisiana Tech last month, senior wide receiver Quan Bray said his goal was to become the nation’s top punt returner.

    Bray held that top spot for a couple of weeks, but with just three returns for a combined 15 yards against LSU and Mississippi State, he has slipped down to second nationally with 24.88 yards per return.

    “I haven't got a chance in the last couple of games,” Bray said. “But I'm going out there with the confidence and trying to be the playmaker for my team.” The country’s new leader in that category is a familiar foe for Bray and the rest of the Auburn team — Kansas State’s Tyler Lockett, who is averaging 26.75 yards per return.
