Chris Davis’ reign as Big Man on Campus at Auburn is off to a rousing start after he received a standing ovation from his Geology class this morning.

In case you’ve been living in a cave lately, Davis’ spectacular missed field goal return earned the Tigers a spot in the SEC Championship in addition to a win over bitter rivals, the Crimson Tide.

An Auburn football player actually attended a class? Give that guy an 'A'

I doubt if he'll have to buy any of his own drinks for a while, either. And he may meet a few new girls as well. I wish him the best. I jumped out of my seat during that play.

Nice thing to do for a guy who was obviously not a star player on the team and who attends class!

@CJ101 By class the article means stadium where football players get roughly 12 credits per semester.  That return alone was worth 6 credits of math prerequisites.

@CJ101 NEVER stop trying to be an internet badass! And it is rude to assume college players do not have to attend classes, and that they are only there to make money for the school. Why Michael Vick was a Sociology major. And if you've ever heard him speak you can certainly tell he was educated at a college level.
