AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn defensive linemen Nick Coe and Big Kat Bryant were both named to the Freshman All-SEC team, which was voted on by the coaches and released Thursday.

Coe played in all 13 games for Auburn this season and has 29 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and six quarterback hurries. The redshirt freshman twice earned SEC freshman of the week honor and was also named the SEC defensive lineman of the week for his efforts in the Iron Bowl where he had five tackles, a sack and a quarterback hurry.

Bryant, a true freshman who didn't arrive on campus until this past summer, played in 11 games and finished with five tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and a forced fumble. Both sacks came against SEC opponents.

Last year, defensive end Marlon Davidson and cornerback Javaris Davis represented Auburn on the Freshman All-SEC team.
