GAME RECAP: Auburn 42, Mercer 16

+

uburn began the 2022 season unconventionally, with a lengthy weather delay, but we gave ‘em something to talk about as the quarterback situation will continue to brew into subsequent weeks as the Tigers dispatched Mercer 42-10. T.J. Finley threw two interceptions in the first half in his first game after being announced as the starter, and Robby Ashford showed flashes in both the run and pass game to get extensive playing time down the stretch. Due to the 1:28 weather delay splitting the third quarter, it was difficult to ascertain exactly how things were going, but Ashford certainly looked better tonight. Things that we knew were going to happen included the defense playing very well, showcasing new stars like Cam Riley while old faces like Derick Hall impressed as we knew they would. Tank Bigsby had a huge night with 147 yards and 2 touchdowns in the opener as well. What we’ll end up discussing as we turn the page to San Jose State next Saturday will largely revolve around the quarterback play and who will end up as the ultimate starter once we get into the meat of the schedule.
