On a day when most thought they would easily be able to pick winners in SEC matchups, the SEC was shaken up. Vanderbilt beat Georgia. Missouri beat Florida. Ole Miss beat LSU. Tennessee beat South Carolina. Auburn beat Texas A&M. In this remarkable SEC shake up a new quarterback star emerged at Auburn. Auburn’s junior quarterback Nick Marshall who was formally a defensive back at Georgia, was 11-for-23 for 236 yards, had two passing touchdowns rushed for 100 yards and had two rushing touchdowns as well.
I enjoyed this article because it took a look into Nick Marshall, removed from his troubles at Georgia. Barrett Sallee also was aware at the fact that Marshall still needs improvement, yet he applauds his confidence and preserverence. It wouldn’t be a far cry for Sallee to say that Marshall is key to Auburn’s turn around from last season, but he doesn’t place the quarterback on such a stage.
