Auburn football career passing leader No. 2: Jason Campbell
- 7,299 passing yards
- 45 passing touchdowns
- 24 interceptions
Jason Campbell commandeered Auburn’s offense during the greatest season the program ever had that didn’t result in a national championship, the 2004 season. Not coincidentally, Campbell was the SEC Offensive Player of the Year that season, though his accomplishments didn’t end there — Campbell was the 2005 Sugar Bowl MVP during a razor-thin 16-13 victory over Virginia Tech.
Campbell had staying power in the NFL, starting for the Washington Redskins for three years before being the Oakland Raiders’ QB1 in 2010. Though he didn’t have the most memorable NFL career, Campbell did complete 60% of his passes in an era that featured far fewer checkdowns than today and had 87 touchdowns to 60 interceptions.
Now a radio host, Campbell is now calling the action, but in his heyday the Taylorsville, Mississippi product, along with the great running back duo of Ronnie Brown and Cadillac Williams, was the action.
