Kansas QB Jason Bean is the real deal

  Kansas QB Jason Bean is the real deal Bean finished 12-for-24 for 189 yards passing with 13 carries for 102 yards and two rushing touchdowns. KU went 0-9 last season under Les Miles and is 1-1 under new coach Lance Leipold. Maybe the Jayhawks won’t win a ton more games this season, but as long as they have Bean at quarterback, they are going to be exciting. For Big 12 fans, Bean reminds me somewhat of former Nebraska quarterback Taylor “T Magic” Martinez, who rushed for 31 touchdowns in his career.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Another week and Auburn football game days are back on The Plains. The Tigers host the Georgia State Panthers for the first time ever and Saturday is also Auburn ’s 2021 Homecoming game . This will be Bryan Harsin’s last nonconference opponent before taking on a gauntlet of a schedule in the SEC. It will be fun to see how they use the final nonconference game as an opportunity to tune up some things before heading to Baton Rouge to play LSU next week. Auburn fans went to Twitter to show their excitement for game day on THe Plains. GAAAAAAAAAMMMMMEEEEE DAAAAAAAAAAAYYYY!!!!!

On defense, Georgia State has not had much success stopping anyone this year. Saturday, Auburn will have a chance to make things right after suffering their first loss last week. They could dominate the competition and gain some confidence heading into their SEC opening against LSU. Georgia State is very suspect when defending the pass. Auburn may try to attack through the air to help clean things up from last Saturday's game plan. Ten catches for the tight ends. AP Photo/Barry Reeger. Auburn 's tight end room looked good through the first three games , they have a chance to pop off on Saturday.

You may want to start paying attention to what’s happening in Auburn if you aren’t already. Believe it or not, the Tigers trail Georgia State 24-19 heading into the fourth quarter.

Auburn is coming off a crushing loss to Penn State last Saturday. It appears the Tigers weren’t ready for a bounce-back game. The Panthers outscored the Tigers 24-12 in the first half. Auburn added on a score in the third quarter, thanks to a blocked punt returned for a touchdown, to make it a 24-19 Georgia State lead at heading into the fourth.

Needing a spark in the fourth, Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin did the unthinkable by benching Bo Nix for TJ Finley. That’s right. The Nix era might have come to a close on Saturday evening.

The Auburn Tigers host the Georgia State Panthers for their annual Homecoming game . Bryan Harsin’s Tigers are looking to bounce back after suffering their first loss of the season. Here’s what you need to know. Who is playing: The number 23 Auburn Tigers are hosting the Georgia State Panthers. Auburn enters the game 2-1. Georgia State is 1-2. How to watch on TV: The game is at 3:00 CT at Jordan-Hare Stadium. The television coverage is on the SEC Network. Live Stream: FuboTV (try it free). Series history: This will be the first-ever matchup between the two teams.

Georgia State currently has one of the nation’s worst passing attacks, averaging 119.0 passing yards per game (121st nationally). Georgia State has elected to focus more on the run in their spread-option scheme. Zac Blackerby of the “Locked on Auburn ” podcast sat down with Ben Moore of 247 sports to talk about whether or not the Panthers have enough in the tank to expose Auburn through the air. Here is what Ben Moore had to say about the Panthers’ passing attack. Moore: “I think that’s the plan.

The Auburn quarterback completed just 13 of his 27 attempts for 156 yards. He didn’t even have a single yard rushing. And that’s against a Georgia State defense which gave up 43 to Army in Week 1 and 59 to North Carolina in Week 2.

It’s pretty incredible how bad things have gone for Bo Nix so far this season.

Two years ago, Nix made a name for himself by beating the Oregon Ducks with a miraculous comeback in the 2019 season opener. Most thought he would become the next college football superstar. It just hasn’t transpired.

Nix has always been an elite runner, but he has yet to progress in the passing game. It may just end up costing the Tigers a victory on Saturday.

Tune into the SEC Network right now to catch the rest of Auburn-Georgia State.
