Bo Nix draws the ire of Auburn fans after poor showing in loss to Texas A&M
College football fans are fickle by nature, and that’s certainly the case at Auburn.
The 13th-ranked Tigers entered their game at Texas A&M on Saturday having won 4 of their last 5 games, and the play of quarterback Bo Nix had been one of the keys to the recent success.
Nix’s play had earned praise from Auburn fans, but throughout his career many of those same fans have been quick to turn on the junior signal caller, and that has was the case on Saturday.
Nix struggled against the Aggies throughout the day in Auburn’s 20-3 loss in College Station.
He completed just 20-of-41 passes for 154 yards and an interception, had minus-18 rushing yards, and was plagued by accuracy issues throughout the game.
Most costly, however, was a 4th-quarter fumble that was returned for a touchdown by Michael Clemmons to put Texas A&M ahead 17-3.
Nix’s play resulted in harsh criticism on social media from Auburn fans, as well as college football fans in general, throughout the game.
Here’s a look at some of the reaction:
Bo Nix might be the worst 3 year SEC starter ever

Bo Nix picked off. Lowest scoring game for Auburn since getting shut out 49-0 in the 2012 Iron Bowl.

Bo Nix completely folded when they needed him. 0 composure today and was even yelling at his teammates instead of taking responsibility

Bo Nix is the most maddening, frustrating QB in Auburn Football history. Good Bo/Bad Bo? It’s a tossup any given Saturday. Never Consistent Bo.

Bo Nix is either surprisingly effective or absolutely garbage and there's no in-between

It’s gotta be tough for the Auburn radio team to not unload on Bo Nix every drive. You can hear the struggle.

I don’t care what anyone says, Bo Nix is not that good. His scrambling around drives me effing nuts. Please play anyone else.

Hate to be so negative but dang man I hate bo nix
— O’Dale (@ArmaOdello) November 6, 2021
Are you telling me Auburn has nobody better than Bo Nix? Offensive line is obviously an issue, but Nix is a straight up grease fire on every play.

Bo Nix is the same old damn QB since Day 1 and multiple auburn coaches refuse to make an adjustment or change at QB. That’s a weird situation
