Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall is the SEC Offensive Player of the Week.

Marshall threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more in the Tigers 45-41 win over No. 7 Texas A&m on Saturday.

He joins Cam Newton as the only other Auburn quarterback to rush and pass for two or more scores in the same game. Newton did it against Kentucky in 2010.

Marshall led Auburn to touchdowns in four of it's final five drives.

The Tigers jumped 13 spots in the Associated Press Top 25, from No. 24 to No. 11.

They play FAU at Jordan Hare Stadium this Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
