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.
#8 — Shaun Shivers, RB
Game — Auburn @ Mississippi, October 24, 2020
This is what happens when guys change numbers. We already saw this with Harold Joiner, and now we have it with Worm.
This touchdown came after the literal representation of this meme:

I mean sometimes it just worked.
Shivers’s touchdown would tie the game, and Auburn would eventually come back to win 35-28.
Worm still has #8, so I’m fairly certain we’ll see a few more touchdowns in 2021. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if this one comes off the board against Akron.
