AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn has been a fixture when it comes to the SEC’s weekly awards this season. Monday, it was no different, as two more Tigers were honored for their efforts from this past weekend.
Not surprisingly, Chris Davis was named the SEC’s special teams player of the week following his 100-yard touchdown return as time expired to help Auburn topple then-No. 1 Alabama 34-28 on Saturday night. It’s the second time this season Davis won the award; his first came after the Tennessee game, where he returned a punt 85 yards for a touchdown.
The Tigers’ other award recipient was quarterback Nick Marshall, who captured the SEC’s offensive player of the week award after totaling 196 offensive yards (99 rushing, 97 passing) and three touchdowns (two passing, one rushing) in the victory over the Crimson Tide. The junior signal-caller garnered the award on two other occasions this season, following victories over Texas A&M and Tennessee, respectively.
In sum, Auburn has 11 weekly awards this season.
