Bo Nixs junior season is officially over.
The Tigers will turn to former LSU transfer T.J. Finley, who injured his ankle in Saturdays loss to Mississippi State, for the remainder of the season.
The damage that Mississippi State gave to Auburns defense was statistically speaking: The damage suffered by Mississippi State to Mississippis defence was damaging to the defense of Auburns defense.

Look at a troubling trend for the Auburn offense with an eyes at a closer look at a disturbing trend for the offense.
He wants to win, says Harsin. He is a tough person, so it's hard to tell you what the first thing you talk about at the quarterback position is the toughness, not matter in that with Bo, he said. He wants to compete, has an ability to give everything he can to help us win. I love the attitude. I love it.
You really enjoy your attitude. "Not to be afraid of being injured. He's always looking forward to coming back again."
Nix injured his ankle during third quarter of Auburns 43-34 loss to Mississippi State at a blocked field goal attempt on the sidelines. Nix was evaluated in the teams medical tent before leaving the game.
Harsin said Nix was later seen with an explanation after the sideline attempt to walk it off and returned to play after having been cleared by the medical team in the accident.
Nix led three more Auburn drives, completing 9 of 17 passes for 109 yards and guiding the Tigers to their single second-half touchdown.
As soon as he returned to the neighborhood, he looked, climbed up in the pocket, threw the ball well, Harsin said. The moment he made it to the back of the neighborhood, and to continue driving and do the things we did in the first half, "When he was able to go back in there, he looked, stood in the pocket, and put away his own opportunity to play, he tapped the ball in a sense, said Harsin, saying I didn
The junior became replaced by Finley on Auburn's final possession, and the Tigers started trailing by nine. Nix said the change had come because he felt it was better to have a guy who can only move around and not be hindered with anything.
Harsin at the time, when the quarterback was changed, commented on the discussion of the problem in an interview on Monday. He said that he didnt think Nix could continue the game for the rest of the game, and was unprepared in the fourth quarter to rely on the quarterback on the fact that he didnt expect any new players to stay in the game.
When Bryan Harsin was talking about Bo Nix's injury and Auburn's QB situation, what Bryan said about Harsin's injury, Auburn's QB situation, and how Auburn handled his injury.
Auburn's coach discussed the season-ending injuries to Bo Nix and Anders Carlson, and what the impact will a team at quarterback and kicker rest of the year.
Well, it really came back to Bo, who was really ready to go, but it was just, didn't feel like we could really go and get it going. But it made me realize that when TJ, when we got a spark, it came back to Bo, that he guessed what it was, that came back to Bo, which just could he give me a second chance, then, we got the ball out of the field and then, a second. You knew, it's just that we had to
Harsin said that Nix wasn't able to finish the game after the Auburn decision to try his best, but the coach didn't think there was another hit that Nix took after re-entering the game and further damaged his ankle, nor did he think he had any doubtful if his continued play for those three drives aggravated the injury beyond the initial hit.
Nix finished the game with three rushing yards and three touchdowns despite a career-high 377 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns apiece. Just as the medical staff were passing the evaluation, the quarterback was able to end his season with a fracture in his ankle which required surgery, and thus ended his season.
If guys get injured, you're in a good mood. If not, you're right at the time. If it is when your team wants to support them, and you're right at the time, you are right at the moment: you're going to support them. But there's a human element that is important to this, and one part of that is that it, is you are focusing on.
And after surgery, you know, we'll regroup and concentrating on what comes next and what he has to do and what kind of things that he is injured, as it was the initial conversation, when we were there, like that as if the doctors grew up.
Nix completed 197 passes (61 percent) for two-and-a-half years, 11 touchdowns and four touchdowns in 10 games. Nixs career is ahead of him with a record completion rate above 60 percent, due to the success of Harsin and new offensive coordinator Mike Bobo.
The former football player scored 90.9 percent of his passes in the first two seasons as Auburns quarterback, after a knockout by Akron. His failure at home to the Sun Belt led to a loss in September, and was dismissed in favor of Finley.
Nix reacted in resounding fashion and put together the best month of his career in October.
He became an exemplary man in the 1970s, with a newfound competitive edge awoken by his benching against Georgia State.
Nix returned to his former career for a 15-point victory against Arkansas, and he embraced his reputation by three-touchdown in a win against Ole Miss at home. In a successful performance against the Mississippi State, which hasnt been able to prove that the Auburn offensive performance is arguably the best of his career.
Only someone knew the time it was what would be his final game of the year.
As long as the broken ankle proves, the game ended in a difficult ending to Year 3 with Auburn QB1 for Nix, who has started all 34 games for the Tigers since in 2019 - the fourth-most recorded in the league since 1969 - on Saturday against South Carolina. Finley will take control of the offense if he takes the rest of the game.
He spent a number of dollars, from the first half of the game, to do that for a touchdown to Shedrick Jackson in the final minute. But this week, the sophomore has represented the Auburn team for four seasons, albeit with limited size.
He prepares as a starter, he goes out there as a starter, then you don't know when his chance will come to the game and try to make a difference, said Harsin. It can happen not only for injury, but to have an injury, as you never know it, and hes always doing a miracle. That means you don't always make a difference. So you're always preparing, said Harsin. Hunfortunately, his injury is likely
When Finley began his career against the South Carolina team last season, his greatest possible opportunity for Auburn is now, Finley will be taking on the same team he'd been doing at LSU, leading the team into Williams-Brice Stadium.
