Jarquez Hunter moves up the all-time Auburn rushing list

Jarquez Hunter has moved up another spot on Auburn football's decorated rushing list.

Auburn running back Jarquez Hunter carried the ball nine times for 53 yards in the 27-10 loss against Texas A&M.

Hunter's 53 yard on Saturday makes him 37th among Auburn career rushers with 1,406 yards. He passed Mario Fannin's 1,366 yards amassed from 2007 to 2010 and Mitzi Jackson's 1,373 career rushing yards during the 1973 to 1975 seasons. 

In Auburn's upcoming battle against Georgia, he will aim to pass Monk Gafford (1,414 from 1940-42) and Cam Newton (1,473 in 2010) to move up Auburn's all-time rushing leaders list.

Hunter has run the ball for 90 yards this season after missing the first game of the season against UMass. He ran the ball for 668 yards last season and for 593 yards during the 2021 season.
