AUBURN, Ala. - At 5-foot-11, 189 pounds, Stephen Roberts may not the first Auburn Tiger who comes to mind when one thinks of wreaking havoc in opponents’ backfields.

But twice in Auburn’s season opener against Georgia Southern, and again at Clemson, No. 14 sneaked up from his strong safety position to make tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

“It has something to do with just being confident in the game and knowing my job and what I’m supposed to do,” Roberts said.
