Auburn had their way against Akron on Saturday night.

The Tigers came out and dominated in every aspect of the game. The offense was incredibly efficient, and the defense was fast and smothering. Bo Nix had one of the most efficient games of his career.

The play-calling was phenomenal both from Mike Bobo and Derek Mason.

Here are the Auburn Wire Tigers of the game from Saturday night’s action against the Akron Zips.

Offense: Bo Nix

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

Nix finished the day 20 of 22 for 275 yards and three touchdowns. Nix made every good decision he could. Auburn's pass protection held up the entire night for Nix, and it allowed him to shine. He was focused. He was having fun.

Defense: TD Moultry

Moultry had seven tackles, three TFLs, and a sack against the Zips. Auburn has been waiting for Moultry to breakout and he had himself a game Saturday night.

Special Teams: Anders Carlson
