Kentucky DC compares Auburn QB Bo Nix to legendary NFL quarterback
In the only matchup of 2 ranked teams in the SEC this weekend, the Kentucky Wildcats will head to Auburn to take on the Tigers.
Auburn is favored to win, but many think the Wildcats could end up being a tough test for the Tigers.
Let’s just say the Wildcats aren’t taking Auburn and QB Bo Nix lightly. As you can see below, Kentucky DC Brad White even went as far as to compare Nix’s style of play to NFL legend Brett Favre’s style:
On Auburn QB Bo Nix: You have to be smart about how you pressure him. He's so good at extending plays with his feet. You see guys on film with what looks like a free run on him, and he just has a knack of making them miss. Said he kind plays like a Brett Favre, loose and fun.

Now, White wasn’t saying Nix is exactly like Brett Favre — just that both quarterbacks have an elusiveness to their game and make football look fun.
