Auburn 27, Jacksonville State 20

CFBFR Player of the Game: Cassanova McKinzy, LB, Auburn
1. McKinzy saves the day

McKinzy didn’t just make the game-saving play for Auburn, he was among a small handful of Tigers who appeared to actually show up from the first quarter on.

McKinzy racked up 12 tackles, seven pressures (two sacks, three hits, two hurries) and forced a fumble.

The senior linebacker appears to be peaking just in time for his draft stock to start soaring.

2. Peyton Barber emerges

Remember when Roc Thomas was named the starting running back?

Barber is now clearly the workhorse in Auburn’s offense, as he ran 125 yards on 23 carries.

25 of Barber’s yards came after contact, as he forced five missed tackles.

3. Coaches don’t trust Johnson

With the game on the line, Auburn needed Jeremy Johnson to make some plays—something he’ll need to do from time to time this season.

But the coaching staff clearly doesn’t trust Johnson throwing the football.

Johnson attempted just seven passes at least 10 yards down the field, completing four.

When throwing within five yards of the line of scrimmage, Johnson was a perfect 13 for 13, but just 10 of 19 throwing beyond five yards.
