Calzada, a native Georgian, started the 2021 season as a backup to Haynes King for Texas A&M. An injury to King forced him into action and he played 12 games. Calzada totaled 2,185 passing yards and 17 touchdowns to nine interceptions. He recorded his best performance versus Alabama on Oct. 9, 2021, at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas. Calzada completed 21 of 31 passes (67.7 percent) for 285 yards and three touchdowns. He tallied a passer rating of 170.5 and a quarterback rating of 91.9.
The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder led Texas A&M to a 41-38 upset victory over the Crimson Tide. He provided Alabama its lone blemish of the season. After losing Bo Nix to Oregon, Auburn fans feel elated to have someone who has a winning record against the Tide.
Alabama fans reacted on social media upon seeing the news.
As soon as Auburn saw he entered the portal with a win vs Alabama he was instantly their top target https://t.co/ZT8jSe1VH9

Bring on the “we have the QB that beat Alabama so we’re so much better than them” crowd.
Auburn fans will be insufferable this year. https://t.co/UMPPb4CpzD
