Auburn freshman wide receiver Eli Stove had played in just two games and had 3 rushing attempts all season.
That all changed Saturday when he took a quick handoff 78 yards for a touchdown. It was his first carry of the game to put Auburn up 7-0 early in the first quarter.

It marked the third longest run by a freshman in Auburn history and the longest since 1951. The blocking Stove received in front of him on the Tigers’ first play from scrimmage didn’t hurt, either.
