Auburn football: Tigers from all sports recognized on the Plains

Auburn football is the No. 1 topic in the War Eagle Wakeup every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across the Tigers’ sports world. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Auburn football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Midseason All-Americans

Two Auburn Tigers were recognized as members of the Associated Press’ first-ever Midseason All-America team on Tuesday.

The honors went to senior right guard Braden Smith and cornerback Carlton Davis.

It’s no surprise that Smith claimed yet another honor. He was named first-team All-SEC by the AP and other outlets at the end of last season and has been recognized several times by Pro Football Focus so far this season.

Davis has been a big reason why Kevin Steele’s defense has been a top unit in the country so far this year.

The junior has defended 1.3 passes per game (ranked third in the SEC) and has notched 17 total tackles. He’s also snagged an interception and recovered his first fumble at LSU over the weekend.
