Blackmon Ready for Breakout Season

Auburn linebacker Tray Blackmon feels like this will be his breakout season. The 10th-ranked Tigers' junior has been slowed by injuries and
suspensions since arriving as a highly touted prospect. Blackmon says he is eager to finally live up to the billing and takes it as a challenge.

Blackmon was solid as a starter last season. He made 45 tackles
but battled an ankle injury and missed four games.

Blackmon and the Tigers open next Saturday night against Louisiana-Monroe.
