Bo Nix has big first half; draws praise from fans on social media
Bo Nix is having a big first half for the Auburn Tigers.
Auburn holds a 37-0 lead over the Akron Zips, and Nix is having himself a day. Through 2 quarters, he’s completed 18 of his 20 passes for 255 yards and 3 touchdowns.
For a guy who was pushed by LSU transfer TJ Finley for the starting job this offseason, Nix is looking like the competition did him a lot of good.
And, fans are liking what they’re seeing from their QB1 thus far. With the caveat that yes, this is only against Akron, here are some of the reactions to Nix’s first-half performance:
Bryan Harsin on TV on Bo Nix's first half
"I think he's made good decisions so far."
Guess so. Nix is 18-for-20 passing for 255 yards and three touchdowns and Auburn leads Akron 37-0.

I personally like Gus but seeing Bo Nix do this in his first game under a new coach is not a great look for him.
This looks like the five-star that was promised three years ago. Bad opponent or not.

I'm having fun.
You're having fun.
Bo Nix is having fun.
Tank Bigsby is having fun.
Jordan-Hare Stadium is having fun.
That was a fun first half, albeit against a lesser opponent. Definitely a different-looking Auburn team.

Not to get my hopes up, but I think Bo Nix is going to win the Heisman.

I know this is Akron but is anyone else pleased with how well Bo Nix has done in game 1 of this offense?

I used to be a fan of Bo Nix, but after that 1st half, I’m a whole ass air conditioner. He is unequivocally the best qb in the country.
This is the year.

How much will he play in the second half? It could be Finley time soon if the Tigers continue to dominate.
