A total of 16 Tigers logged their highest snap totals of the season, including defensive backs Bashaud Breeland (69), Korrin Wiggins (63), Jadar Johnson (27), Cordrea Tankersley (18) and Ronald Geohaghan (8).

Additionally, Tony Steward played a season-high 32 snaps and B.J. Goodson got 14 at linebacker. Also hitting season highs were defensive tackles Rod Byers (28) and DeShawn Williams (41), and defensive end Martin Aiken (18).

On offense, running back D.J. Howard played a season-high 43 snaps, as did wide receiver Mike Williams. Daniel Rodriguez got a season-high, as well, with 19 snaps.
