Former Auburn safety picks off Dak Prescott twice

Auburn showed out against Texas A&M on Saturday, but the school legacy is continuing on Sunday.

Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott got an SEC West flashback on two different occasions on Sunday. Former Auburn safety Rudy Ford grabbed two passes from Prescott in the Packers’ home game against the Cowboys, his first two interceptions on the year.

Ford’s first pick game when the Cowboys were looking to cash in in the red zone. Prescott threw a pass that appeared to be intended for tight end Dalton Schultz, but Ford read the play and picked it off in the endzone. Ford returned the ball to midfield before being forced out of bounds.

His second interception came later in the second quarter. Prescott threw a football down the middle of the field for wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, but the ball appeared to be thrown a little behind and Rudy capitalized, taking the ball close to the Cowboys’ 20-yard line.

The two interceptions are Ford’s first of the year. The Packers are Ford’s fourth team since he came to the NFL in 2017 after Auburn, and the action at safety in the game so far is the most play he’s seen at the position all year.
