Tuberville talks quarterback struggles

Auburn may be looking at changes on offense for the second half of the season, but those changes won't come at quarterback.

Chris Todd and Kodi Burns may not have played well through the first six games of the season, but the two are the best quarterbacks the Tigers have, head coach Tommy Tuberville said Sunday.

Third-team quarterback Neil Caudle has yet to attempt a pass this season. Freshman Barrett Trotter is redshirting. Tuberville said he didn't expect either of the two to become any more involved than they already are.

"Trotter is practicing some. Neil gets a few snaps during the week, but the guys that we've got to go to war with are the guys that have been through all the tough times for the last six games," said Tuberville.

Todd and Burns have certainly seen tough times this season. They are a combined 93-for-170 passing (54.7 percent) with five touchdowns and six interceptions.

Todd has as many interceptions (five) as touchdowns. Burns has yet to throw a touchdown pass, but has thrown an interception. Burns is completing just 41.7-percent of his passes. Todd's isn't much better at 56.8-percent.
