AUBURN, Ala. — Well, Auburn’s favorite Netflix star made that look pretty easy.
Already routing Louisiana-Monroe, the Tigers put John Franklin III in to relieve starter Sean White. It only took one play for Franklin to show off what makes him such dangerous athlete. He darted up the middle, found some open space and dashed untouched — for an 80-yard touchdown.
His speed isn’t falsely advertised, folks.

Franklin showed he can toss it around the yard, too. He connected with Nate Craig-Myers on a 39-yard touchdown strike on the following possession.

Quarterback battle? OK, that might be a stretch. Still, a good performance in relief.
