Auburn: Cox Pulls A Tebow

Well, sort of. Auburn quarterback Brandon Cox won his game, leading the Tigers to a 17-3 win over Ole Miss while Tebow's Gators went down to Gerogia, but Cox will follow Tebow's lead later this week when he sits out of prctices with a bruised non-throwing shoulder.

Cox was 16 for 26 passing for 189 yards and a touchdown against Ole Miss, the most important of which came in the waning minutes of the game, when Cox hit Rodgeriqus Smith with a 34-yard reception to seal the win.

Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville did not reveal the injury until after the game, and downplayed it.

"Brandon bruised his non-throwing shoulder and he will probably be out a couple of days," Tuberbille said. "He will be real sore."

Sounds like another SEC quarterback we know. Luckily, Auburn has a non-conference game next week for Cox to test his shoulder against, not another formidable SEC foe like Georgia, which was able to hit Tebow where it hurt on Saturday. Georgia will have its chance against Auburn to end the season, but in the meantime, Cox should have plenty of time to rest and recover.
