Bo Nix impresses, draws rave reviews while leading Auburn to Arkansas win
Bo Nix has been a bit inconsistent during his 3 years at Auburn. But when the junior quarterback is at the top of his game, he can perform like the one he had on Saturday afternoon in Arkansas.
Nix led the Tigers to a 38-23 victory with 21 for 26 for 292 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. He also had 5 carries for 42 yards and a rushing score, a 23-yard run that sealed the victory with 2 minutes and 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
It was the first time Nix had scored multiple touchdown passes in a game since 9/11 against Alabama State. Entering Saturday, he had only one pass from TD on his 4 previous contests.
With Nix having a big day, there were a lot of people chatting about the Tigers QB on social media. Here are some of Twitter’s reactions to Nix’s strong performance at Fayetteville:
Bo Nix with his best Auburn game and it’s not even close

I don’t know how much #Auburn is, but the Tigers showed up on the road against Arkansas and LSU, and were in the game at Penn State. Bo Nix is clearly improving under coach Bryan Harsin.
Interesting team to follow until the end.

I cannot underestimate the importance of this victory for Bryan Harsin and Bo Nix. Played big boy football on the road and will knock down a top 25 opponent. You can build from that.
