AUBURN — Tank Bigsby has amazed the SEC with his power and propensity for making would-be tacklers look like idiots. It's not all natural. Auburn's sophomore running back has a disciplined approach in the film room.

When Bigsby was asked Tuesday about which Penn State defensive players have impressed him most during game preparation, he didn't have a specific name to offer. That's the point.

"When I watch film, I don't just pick out particular people," Bigsby said. "I just watch where their defense is coverage-wise. What fronts they're in. What they do. Do they get push on the O-line? Do the D-line get pushed back? Do the linebackers over-pursue? Stuff like that. That's how I watch film.

"I'm not going to speak too much on them, but I feel like we're going to watch them, keep watching film, keep growing and get ready for Saturday."

Well, is the conclusion on the Nittany Lions that they have a good defense?

"Uhhhhhh yeah," Bigsby laughed, "they're a pretty good defense."
