Observations and reactions from Auburn's six representatives at the Senior Bowl as the former Tigers wrapped up their second day of preparations for the game. Cameron Artis-Payne, Gabe Wright and Sammie Coates were especially impressive.
"I don't watch the offense of Auburn," says Melvin Gordon, Wisconsin's Heisman finalist. "I wouldn't really know how good he is, but if he's leading the SEC you've got to be pretty good. I've seen a couple runs of him in some of the big games. Looks pretty explosive."
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) Cameron Artis-Payne ran for 129 yards and a touchdown, quarterback Nick Marshall passed for 171 yards and a score and No. 16 Auburn snapped a two-game skid with a 31-7 victory over Samford on Saturday night.
Auburn (8-3) used the game against an FCS opponent to tune up for next week's Iron Bowl showdown at No. 2 Alabama.
