Auburn QB contenders hope to shine

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Kodi Burns and Neil Caudle get one more chance to gain an edge in Auburn's quarterback competition.

The two will also help put Gus Malzahn's newly installed offense on display in Saturday's spring game at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Chizik's first spring game will have a different look than previous editions.

The defense will be able to score points with turnovers, stops and big plays.

The offense scores with extended drives and big plays as well as touchdowns and field goals.

And yes, Chizik said Auburn would supply the guidelines for the scoring system.

The Tigers have several defensive backs and other players who aren't expected to play because of injuries.
