Jimmy Sidle became the first quarterback to lead the nation in rushing with 1,006 yards in 1963. He also led the SEC in offense with 1,712 yards and completed 53-of-136 passes for 706 yards and five touchdowns. After leading Auburn to a 9-1 season and an Orange Bowl bid, he was selected All-American in 1963.
