One of Saturday’s premier kick-off games featured a clash of two top ten teams. The 6th ranked Washington Huskies against Gus Malzahn’s, 9th ranked Auburn Tigers. Most eyes were on Kam Martin, Auburn’s new feature back, wondering how he would play without last years starter Kerryon Johnson. Martin finished the game with 22 carries for 80 yards.
A low scoring game came to an end with Auburn’s defensive lineman Smoke Monday (yikes!) sacking Quarterback, Jake Browning, on a 4th and long. The final score, 21-16, would give Auburn its first win of the season.
This was Washington’s only scheduled game against a high-powered defense so expect to see them to still go on a run.
