Auburn football names its top players from Mercer victory

·1 min read

It’s hard to pick standouts in a dominating victory like the Tigers’ 42-16 rout of the Mercer Bears, but there were a few standouts in Auburn’s home opener last Saturday.

The official Auburn Football Twitter account gave its picks, and it included five standout players from all over the ball — Tank Bigsby, Cam Riley, Jarquez Hunter, Brandon Council and Colby Wooden. All of them contributed in a big way, but each had their own unique performances that allowed the Tigers to coast past the Bears.

On the offensive side of the ball, Bigsby showed everyone why he’s considered one of the SEC’s best backs by busting off 147 yards and two touchdowns behind the efforts of Council. Meanwhile, Riley and Wooden wreaked havoc on the defense, with the former recording 15 total tackles and the latter recording three, both with a quarterback hurry each.

Finally, Hunter took back a single kickoff in the game and returned it 14 yards.

All of these Tigers will look to continue their production this weekend when Auburn takes on San Jose State back at Jordan-Hare stadium.
