It was announced after Auburn’s loss to Mississippi State that they have lost starting quarterback Bo Nix for the season because of an ankle injury.

Now Auburn has to go into this weekend’s game against South Carolina with backup quarterback TJ Finley. Finley played earlier this season when he came in for Nix in their come-from-behind victory against Georgia State.

Will there be a big difference between the two? ESPN college football analyst Jordan Rodgers doesn’t think so. Rodgers made these comments about the situation on “McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning” on WJOX radio out of Birmingham.

“I don’t think a ton changes, he said. “TJ is a guy get him on the move a little bit, he sees things better.”

Rodgers thinks that Tigers offensive coordinator Mike Bobo will have Finley well-prepared for Saturday.
