01/21/2014 - 2014 Senior Bowl: 10 observations from Monday's South practice...7. While Ford played well, his former Auburn teammates, Chris Davis, struggled a bit fielding punts early in the practice. Davis has a tendency to allow the ball to hit his chest plate, which results in some double-clutching. Oklahoma's Jalen Saunders also struggled in this area. The former Sooners' star also dropped a couple of passes. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

12/11/2013 - 2013 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM: CB - Chris Davis (Tie), Auburn, 5-11, 200, Sr,...Has been selected Second Team All-SEC for the 2013 college football season by the Associated Press. - Auburn football

12/03/2013 - WEEK 14 NCAA NATIONAL SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Chris Davis returned a missed field-goal attempt more than 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn to a 34-28 victory against No. 1 Alabama on Saturday, upending the two-time defending national champions' BCS hopes and preserving the Tigers' own. Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffith's 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-to-fathom finish for the Tigers. It is the third time in NCAA history that a missed field goal was returned for 100 yards and the first time since 1968 (Clemson vs. Georgia - Richie Luzzi for Clemson). The only other time was 1966 (California vs. Washington State - Don Guest for California). - NCAA.com

12/02/2013 - WEEK 14 CBSSPORTS.COM SPECIALIST OF THE WEEK: Auburn cornerback Chris Davis...Chris Davis' one punt return recorded -1 yard, but the senior cornerback won this award with the play that you have no doubt seen over and over again. Malzahn's decision to substitute Davis into the game and send him to the end zone will forever change the lore of the Iron Bowl, and his 108ish-yard return (NCAA officially records such returns as 100 yards) clinched the SEC West for Auburn and changed the entire landscape for the final week of the college football season. - CBSSports.com

12/02/2013 - WEEK 14 SEC CO-SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Chris Davis, CB/KR, Auburn...Returned a missed field goal 109 yards (officially 100 yards) as time expired to lead Auburn to a 34-28 come-from-behind victory over #1 Alabama...It is the fourth time in NCAA history that a missed field goal was returned for 100 yards for a score and the second time this year (LSU vs UAB - Odell Beckham, Jr. for LSU).

12/01/2013 - Chris Davis returned a missed field-goal attempt more than 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn over No. 1 Alabama on Saturday, upending the two-time defending national champions' BCS hopes and preserving the Tigers' own. Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffith's 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-to-fathom finish for the Tigers (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference).

Auburn clinched a spot in the SEC championship game with the stunning victory over the powerhouse from across the state. The Crimson Tide (11-1, 7-1) seemed at several times poised to continue its run toward the first three-peat in modern college football. AJ McCarron completed 17 of 29 passes for 277 yards and three touchdowns for Alabama. Auburn's Nick Marshall was 11-of-16 passing for 97 yards but also rushed 17 times for 99 yards. Tre Mason ran 29 times for 164 yards and a touchdown for Auburn. - AP Sports

12/01/2013 - The Immaculate Deflection lasted exactly one game as the most stunning, most impossible play of Auburn's ridiculously impossible season. With the Iron Bowl tied, 28-28, with one second left, Chris Davis caught Adam Griffin's 57-yard field goal attempt deep in the end zone and returned it for a touchdown, and in the process returned No. 4 Auburn to the SEC Championship Game with a 34-28 "did this really just happen?" upset of No. 1 Alabama. Davis actually returned the kick about 109 yards, but was credited with 100, per NCAA rules.

Moments earlier, Auburn fans booed when officials reviewed T.J. Yeldon's run and determined he stepped out of bounds with one second left on the clock. Alabama coach Nick Saban summoned Griffin to replace Cade Foster, who had missed three field goal attempts earlier, including one that was blocked with 2 minutes left to play and the Crimson Tide leading, 28-21. - The Sports Xchange

11/11/2013 - WEEK 11 SEC SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Chris Davis, RS, Auburn...Had two punt returns for 127 yards, including an 85-yard return for touchdown in the second quarter...The 85-yard punt return was the third longest in school history and longest since 1970...His punt return for TD was the first by an Auburn player since 1970...The 127 punt return yards are the second most in school history...The 127 punt return yards are the most in the SEC this season and are the fifth-best in FBS this season. - SEC football

09/07/2013 - Scouting the Auburn pass defense: The surprise of the opener was the Tigers' pass defense, which held Washington State at bay in the second half, despite dealing with depth issues at safety and cornerback. Auburn picked off three passes and held Halliday to only 11-of-29 passing for 80 yards with one interception in the second half. Chris Davis is the team's best cover man at cornerback, and Josh Holsey (one interception) seems to be adapting well after moving from corner to field safety in the spring. - The Sports Xchange

08/21/2013 - OTHER AUBURN PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: CB Chris Davis (5-10, 198, 4.54)...Davis was part of a secondary of a secondary that was scorched by big plays in 2012 and failed to record a single interception. He's missed multiple games over the past two seasons with injury (shoulder in 2011, concussion in 2012) but possesses the combination of size and athleticism to intrigue scouts. With some help from his pass rush, Davis could surprise in 2013. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

07/25/2013 - 2013 PRESEASON ALL-SEC THIRD TEAM (MEDIA): DB - Chris Davis, Auburn (20)...Davis was in on 46 tackles and broke up three passes in 2012 ... Second-year starter at cornerback ... 16 career starts ... four tackles in opener vs. Clemson and at Mississippi State ... six stops and a TFL vs. ULM ... recorded six tackles vs. LSU ... five tackles vs. Arkansas before leaving contest with injury ... did not play against Ole Miss. - Auburn football
