The Auburn Tigers should be a force to be reckoned with in the SEC next season.

In addition to landing former five-star QB Jarrett Stidham, a Baylor transfer, the Tigers got more good news when star RB Kamryn Pettway announced on Twitter that he will return for the 2017 season:

Despite only appearing in eight games this season, Pettway quickly became a star, rushing 185 times for 1,123 yards and seven touchdowns.

Pettway rushed for more than 150 yards a whopping five times in 2016. One of those efforts — a 236-yard outing against Ole Miss — eclipsed the 200-yard mark.

With Stidham manning the quarterback position and the 240-pound Pettway bulldozing defenders, the Auburn offense will be a scary matchup in 2017.
