AUBURN - Auburn running back Michael Dyer has been named a second-team Freshman All-American by CollegeFootballNews.com, it was announced Wednesday.

Dyer broke Bo Jackson's school freshman rushing record and has three 100-yard rushing games, including a season-best 180-yard effort against Ole Miss that was the third-best single-game rushing total by a freshman in Auburn history, and most ever by an Auburn freshman against an SEC team.
Dyer was previously named to the SEC All-Freshman Team, and was the SEC Freshman of the Week following his performance against Ole Miss.
