The Auburn Tigers had a late comeback vs the South Carolina Gamecocks to beat them 16-3 in the end. The Game was back and forth and was a fun game to watch, what was more impressive to watch is South Carolina’s DE Melvin Ingram. On a field littered with first round talent (South Carolina’s Alshon Jeffrey, Stephon Gilmore, and Marcus Lattimore are all likely going to be first round picks over the next two years), 6’2 276 pound DL Melvin Ingram shined the brightest.
Ingram was virtually unblockable when he was rushing the passer tonight. He was applying constant pressure throughout the game, he sacked the quarterback a copious times (official defensive stats aren’t available yet at the time of this writing) but the stats that are being thrown around there are 9 tackles, 6 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, a fumble recovery for a touchdown and an interception. He also pressured the quarterback multiple times, and even had an interception an a trick field goal play. Ingram has been making a name for himself this year and twitter was all abuzz with his performance today.
