  • Johnson and Cam Newton are the only Auburn players since 1996 to score 14 touchdowns through the first eight games of the season
  • Jarrett Stidham's first-quarter touchdown run was his second rushing score at Auburn and fourth of his career. His 18-yard run in the third quarter was a career long rush for Stidham
  • Eli Stove's 45-yard rush was his long rushing gain of the season
  • Kamryn Pettway's three third-quarter TD runs give him six scores for the season and 13 for his career. It's Pettway's fourth career multiple-touchdown game and third three-score game of his career
