Despite making comments that would indicate the Auburn quarterback derby could be nearing an end, Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn met with the media Tuesday following the team’s first fall scrimmage and announced the race was still status quo.
Malzahn refused to go into much detail but said all three quarterbacks were rotated with the first and second teams during the scrimmage. Look for all three to be given the same opportunity this weekend when Auburn scrimmages for the second time this fall.

According to oddsmaker BookMaker.eu, the slight favorite to land the job is junior college transfer John Franklin III at -150. Senior Jeremy Johnson is just behind Franklin at -170 with redshirt sophomore Sean White currently listed at -210 odds to be named the starter.
