Auburn is on pace to have its best rushing attack since 2013

·1 min read

Tank Bigsby and Jarquez Hunter have been feasting over the course of these first three games.

Bigsby has cracked the century mark in every game so far. Hunter set the Auburn record for the longest touchdown run ever. Hunter also is second in the nation in yards per carry (12.6). Now, with a fourth of the season gone, Auburn is on pace to finish with its best rushing attack since 2013.

Auburn is currently averaging 287.3 rushing yards per game (seventh nationally). If the Tigers continue on the pace they are on, it will be the most rushing yards per game since the 2013 team averaged 328.3 rushing yards per game. The next closest is the 2016 team, which averaged 271.3 rushing yards per game.

Looking at the way Auburn’s offensive line is playing, I expect the Tigers to keep their foot on the gas with the rushing attack. Could we see two Auburn rushers eclipse 1,000 yards before the season ends?
