Number 5-Auburn defensive tackles Spencer Johnson
and DeMarco McNeill—the interior duo helped lead a charge into the Badgers’
backfield throughout the game. McNeil and Johnson combined for 13 tackles,
including three for loss and two sacks.
Number 4-Wisconsin linebacker Alex Lewis—in his
final game as a Badger, Lewis led all players with six solo tackles and tied a
game-high with 10 total tackles. He also had two tackles for loss.
Number 3-Auburn linebacker Karlos Dansby—Dansby
forced two fumbles including one late in the game that sealed the Tigers’
victory. He was disruptive force throughout the contest, making plays all over
the field. When he was turned loose to blitz in the second half, the Badgers had
few answers. Dansby finished with 10 tackles, two for loss one-and-a-half sacks
and a pass breakup.
Number 2-Auburn quarterback Jason Campbell—Campbell’s numbers are far from illustrious, but he made big plays when
his team needed them most, none bigger than his 51-yard completion to receiver
Jeris McIntyre, which set up the Tigers go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth
Number 1-Auburn defensive end Reggie Torbor—Torbor
dominated whoever tried to block him throughout the game and harassed Wisconsin
quarterback Jim Sorgi from start to finish. Torbor finished with seven tackles,
four for loss and two and a half sacks anchoring a line that disrupted
Wisconsin’s offensive flow. On one particularly impressive sack, Torbor bull
rushed Badger left tackle Morgan Davis—who outweighs him by 80 pounds and
knocked him backward, jostling him off his feet on his way to Sorgi.
