Top 10.

That’s where Auburn running back Tank Bigsby ranks in all-time rushing yards in school history after Saturday night. He moved past Onterio McCalebb for tenth all time in Tiger history. His 2,609 career rushing yards trails ninth place Ronnie Brown by just 98 yards. Bigsby currently averages a little over 81.5 yards per game, and if he averages that over the final three games of the regular season, he will move up to seventh place. 

It was another bruising night at the office for Bigsby. The former Callaway Cavalier was limited to just 13 carries but was able to turn those carries into 89 yards while also adding a reception for nine yards during Auburn’s 39-33 overtime loss to Mississippi State. With his reception on Saturday, Bigsby is up to 22 on the season (a new career high). 

No play was as spectacular versus the Bulldogs as his 41-yard touchdown run where he showed great power and speed to reach the end zone. 

Bigsby has 676 yards, eight rushing touchdowns and 143 receiving yards through nine games this season.

The Tigers will take on Texas A&M on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. on the SEC Network.
