Record-setting returners: Tigers put on dazzling display in victory over Volunteers

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Chris Davis acknowledged that he violated Rule No. 1 as a returner on Saturday: he let the ball hit the ground. But Auburn's senior corner more than made up for his muff in the second quarter versus Tennessee, as he picked it up, made a few moves and cut to the sideline, racing 85 yards for a touchdown. It was the first punt returned for a touchdown by a Tiger since Robert Dunn did the same against Louisiana-Monroe in 2008 and the longest for Auburn since 1970.
