New fan favorite Bo Nix has now delivered his first touchdown pass in the friendly confines of Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Auburn’s freshman QB, who rescued the Tigers late last week against Oregon, found Will Hastings for a 31-yard pass over the middle that resulted in a score early in the second quarter against Tulane. Hastings made a spin move at the 5-yard-line as Auburn came from behind on an early 3-0 deficit to take the lead.

Auburn’s offense seemed to churn out some yards through the air against the Green Wave as the Tigers also struggled to run the ball early in the first half. Auburn had just 17 yards on its first 12 rushing attempts, while Nix began 9-for-16 passing, and Auburn was 3-for-7 to start the game on third down attempts.
