After another shaky first half against LSU on Saturday, Jeremy Johnson’s status as Auburn’s starting quarterback is in serious doubt.
“Right now our passing game is god awful,” Gus Malzahn told CBS sideline reporter Allie Laforce as his team exited the field for halftime.
Asked if he would consider making a quarterback change at halftime Malzahn said “We’ll talk at halftime. We’ll see what happens.”
Redshirt freshman Sean White is the backup quarterback, but he has yet to take a snap in his career.
Before the season started, Johnson was compared to former Auburn great Cam Newton, and even considered a long-shot candidate for the Heisman Trophy. In Auburn’s first two games this season, Johnson has struggled mightily, throwing a total of five interceptions.
If it's Jeremy Johnson to start the 2nd half for Auburn, that tells you what the Tigers have behind him.
