Auburn faces QB race, other questions

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - The Auburn Tigers are hoping for a quick resolution to the quarterback race.

The Tigers officially report for fall camp on Tuesday and begin practice a day later.

The most talked about battle will be between junior quarterbacks Kodi Burns and Neil Caudle and perhaps senior Chris Todd. Freshman Tyrik Rollison also joins the mix.

The Tigers are also looking to shore up thin linebacking and receiving corps.

Receivers coach Trooper Taylor didn't have a full look at his roster of contenders during the spring. Top returning receiver Montez Billings was out with an academic issue and Philip Pierre-Louis was recuperating from knee surgery.

Much of the buzz surrounding the receivers has been generated by freshmen DeAngelo Benton and Emory Blake.
