Auburn football: Nick Marshall, Chris Davis earn SEC weekly honors

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Marshall and Davis stood out in the Tigers' 55-23 win over Tennessee.

Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall and cornerback Chris Davis garnered SEC weekly awards for their performances against Tennessee on Saturday. Marshall was named SEC Offensive Player of the Week, and Davis was named Special Teams player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

Marshall completed just 3-of-7 passes and threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown, but he burned the Volunteers many times in the running game. He carried 14 times for 214 yards and two touchdowns, averaging an astounding 15.3 yards per rush. One of his three completed passes went for a touchdown.

Davis was a menace on special teams, posing a threat every time he fielded a punt. The senior compiled 127 yards on two returns, and he brought one punt back 85 yards for a touchdown. That return was the longest for an Auburn player since 1970 and third-longest in school history, and the 127 yards were second-most in school history.

It's the sixth week in a row at least one Auburn player has earned a conference award. Marshall previously won Offensive Player of the Week for his showing in the Tigers' upset win over Texas A&M, and running back Tre Mason garnered the same honor last week after his four-touchdown game against Arkansas. Defensive end Carl Lawson and backup QB Jeremy Johnson (twice) have taken home Freshman of the Week Honors.
