Robby Ashford the real deal? Fans react to Auburn QB's strong first half
Robby Ashford is off to a hot start against LSU on his birthday.
The redshirt freshman quarterback has already surpassed the season high for passing yards in less than 2 quarters. He’s also got 247 yards and 2 touchdowns to start.
His hot start is the catalyst for a 17-14 lead heading into the locker room against LSU. The Auburn Tigers may be 3-1, but were not favored at home to improve to 4-1. There’s a long way to go, but if Ashford keeps playing like this its a moot point.

Robby Ashford is growing up right infront of our eyes. Our HC Bryan Harsin is also starting to find his scheme/play call style with this offense. The play calls and coaching has been almost perfect this game. Now lests ee if it last

So you’re telling me Mario Cristobal thought Anthony Brown was better than Robby Ashford while he was at Oregon? Duck fans must be so glad Cristobal is in Miami.
