Auburn football: Tre Mason, Gus Malzahn, 'Kick 6' garner SB Nation accolades

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Auburn received high marks from voters around the SB Nation college network.

The SB Nation postseason awards and All-America teams have been released, and Auburn took home a few honors. Running back Tre Mason was named second-team All-American, Gus Malzahn was named national and SEC coach of the year and the "Kick Six," Chris Davis' game-ending return against Alabama, was named GIF of the year.

The accolades were determined by voters from the SB Nation college network, including yours truly. Mason was the fourth-highest vote-getter at running back, trailing first-teamers Andre Williams and Ka'Deem Carey, and second-teamer Carlos Hyde. After transforming the Tigers from a 3-9 team to a 12-1 squad one win away from the national title, Malzahn was an easy choice as the country's top coach.

A year removed from losing all eight of its conference games, Auburn is one win away from its second national title in four years.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I did not vote for the Kick Six as GIF of the year. I know, I am a terrible Barner. But when I'm looking for GIFs, I'm looking for hilarity, not necessarily great plays -- even if it is the greatest play in the history of the sport. For me, there was only one clear option for best college football GIF in 2013:

While he wasn't named to either All-America team, Chris Davis did receiver a few votes as a returner. Normally, we'd list all of the postseason award winners in this space. But the package put together by Luke Zimmerman and the Vox Media product team is a real beaut. Feast your eyes right here.
