Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham has a pretty lofty goal going into each game.

He wants to be perfect — absolutely perfect — as in, no incompletions.

“That’s one of my goals every week, to have a perfect completion game,” Stidham said, according to a report from “Obviously, it doesn’t work out like that, but I try to get it as close as possible each week, so that’s something I hang my hat on.”

Stidham has been incredibly efficient against Mercer, Missouri and Mississippi State in Auburn’s last three games. Against those teams, Stidham has completed close to 83 percent of his passes for 846 yards and three touchdowns.

“That’s really, really high but we knew he was a very talented quarterback when we recruited him,” Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said. “We knew he could throw it. Obviously, being with him in the spring and fall camp, he’s a guy that can make all the throws. But you’ve got to do it against game situations. Really, sometimes it’s tough to complete 82 or 83 percent on air, but he’s been able to do that and that was impressive.”

Stidham hasn’t hit that 100 percent completion rate in a game yet, but he’s been close. He completed 32 of his 37 pass attempts against Mercer — good for a 86.5 completion rate. Against Mississippi State last week, he was 13-for-16 (81.3 percent).
