Brandon Council is helping Auburn prepare against his former team

·1 min read

Auburn’s season opener with Akron might as well be known as the Brandon Council Bowl.

Council started at guard for the Tigers last season after transferring to the Plains from Akron. He instantly was one of the best and most NFL-ready players on the offensive line.

He was listed as one of the starters on the offensive line in the depth chart that was put out earlier this week.

The leader of the offensive line, Nick Brahms, was asked how Council had handled conversations about getting ready for the matchup with Akron during meetings.

“He’s filled us in on all of their personnel and stuff so he’s got a little insight to that,” Brahms said. “But yeah, he’s excited to do it. I know he is. We’ve talked about it for sure. He’s looking forward to getting out there.”

Council, Brahms, and the Tigers take on Akron at 6:00 PM. the broadcast can be seen on ESPN+.
