When Gus Malzahn came back to be the head coach of the Auburn Tigers for this season, we all knew that Tre Mason was going to be the main part of the fast-paced, Malzahn system. We may not have known how effective he was going to be, but we knew that for it to work he would need to be an elite rusher.

In the Georgia Dome in Atlanta against the Missouri Tigers, Mason already has 21 carries for an astonishing 189 yards. Yes, in the first half.

Auburn drove 79 yards in four plays, a drive in which Mason was the biggest part of once again:
