Corey Grant caps his college career where it started

Over the years, we’ve done different countdowns to kickoff (or tipoff). This year, we’re putting a twist on the classic “Best Auburn Player to Ever Wear Each Number” list. Football is all about lighting up the scoreboard in 2021, so let’s take a walk down memory lane and review the last time a player in each uniform number put up points.


#20 — Corey Grant, RB

Game — Auburn vs Alabama, November 29, 2014

Yeah. You should have scored 60, Gus.

God bless Corey Grant. What a great combination of speed and power. This was one of only 4 touchdowns in his senior year. Sometimes I think we misused him just a bit.


#20 currently belongs to walk-on quarterback Sawyer Pate. It seems odd that it’s been 6 years for a common number like 20 to have gone this long, and unless there’s a touchdown late against Alabama State, it will probably go a little longer.
