Auburn's Quan Bray is on the loose on a punt return Saturday

AUBURN, Ala. -- Quan Bray says he's really not looking for a nickname.
 
"I'll just be regular Quan," he says.
 
But Quan Bray hasn't been a regular Quan, at least he wasn't Saturday. He caught two touchdown passes and returned a punt 76 yards for a score in Auburn's 45-17 win over Louisiana Tech, and this Sunday, he finds himself leading the nation in punt returns.
 
He's returned five punts for 184 yards. That's a nation-best, and eye-popping, 36.8 yards a return. He's second in the nation with two returns for touchdowns.
 
In the SEC, tailback Cameron Artis-Payne and quarterback Nick Marshall are ranked in the Top 10 in rushing. Artis-Payne is fourth in the league and 16th nationally in rushing. Marshall is eighth in the SEC. Jeremy Johnson is second in the conference in pass efficiency. 
 
Auburn's SEC and national stat sheet reflects its 4-0 start as the Tigers head to Saturday's 6 p.m. game against LSU in Jordan-Hare Stadium.
