Bo Nix opens up after losing to Alabama: 'It's an awful feeling'
The Auburn Tigers may have pulled off a win at Jordan-Hare Stadium against Alabama last season, but extending the winning streak to 2 in a row wasn’t in the cards on Saturday night in Tuscaloosa.
The Crimson Tide rolled to a big 42-13 victory over their Iron Bowl rivals, even without coach Nick Saban, who was in quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Auburn sophomore QB Bo Nix experienced his first loss to the Tide, and he said it didn’t feel great, but he’s going to pick himself up and try to learn from the loss:

"It's an awful feeling, to be honest with you. I've never really been in this situation before. It's not going to keep me down. I'm going to keep on battling, keep on playing, and play the next play, and get our guys back for next week.” pic.twitter.com/8xMIetk4ei

Nix finished the game with 227 passing yards, but he had 0 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. He did add a touchdown as a runner.
There’s no rest for Auburn, as No. 5 Texas A&M comes to town next Saturday. Can Nix and the Tigers regroup and pull off an upset?
