Auburn coach Gus Malzahn is confident redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) will be healthy enough to start in the Tigers' bowl game.
"He'll be full force and ready to go," Malzahn said. The Tigers (8-4, 5-3 SEC) are in line for a Sugar Bowl berth despite starting 1-2 and then losing two straight SEC games to close out the year. Auburn's four losses were to Clemson, Texas A&M, Georgia and Alabama. With White out, Jeremy Johnson was forced into action in Saturday's loss to the Tide. Nov 28 - 1:37 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) is questionable for the Iron Bowl.

White did not play against Alabama A&M this past weekend due to a nagging shoulder injury which has bothered him since the end of October. Jeremy Johnson drew the start in his place on Saturday. Expect White's playing status for this weekend's huge showdown with Alabama to clarify as the practice week progresses.
Nov 22 - 3:00 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Alabama A&M.

White has been nursing a shoulder injury over the last two weeks. He sat out the first half against Vanderbilt two weekends ago and while he did manage to play in Saturday's loss to Georgia, White completed just 6-of-20 passes for 27 yards and a pick in that one. He also reaggravated the initial shoulder injury in that contest. The Tigers will roll with Jeremy Johnson in White's place on Saturday. Sitting White was the logical move here given the opponent and the fact that the Iron Bowl looms next weekend.
Nov 17 - 8:26 PM

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said that redshirt sophomore QB Sean White re-injured his shoulder in Saturday's loss to Georgia.

"We knew he wasn't 100 percent," Malzahn said, "but it was a close game and he wanted to be in there. He's a tough guy. He's one of our leaders." White completed 6-of-20 passes for only 27 yards and an interception against the Bulldogs on Saturday. His status for this weekend's upcoming game against Alabama A&M has yet to be determined, but Auburn should be able to get away with sitting him in that contest should they so choose, in an attempt to bring him up to health for the Iron Bowl on November 26.
Nov 15 - 3:15 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) struggled mightily in Saturday's 13-7 loss to Georgia, completing 6-of-20 passes for 27 yards and an interception.

Egads. To be at least somewhat fair to White, he didn't play in the first half of last weekend's contest with Vanderbilt due to a shoulder injury, one which continued to nag over the course of the practice week. Still, this was a disastrous showing for an offense that scored a combined 96 points against Ole Miss and Arkansas at the end of October. In the two games since that torrid stretch, the Tigers have scored a combined 30 points.
Nov 12 - 7:15 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) is expected to start against Georgia on Saturday.

White sat out the first half of Saturday's game against Vanderbilt due to a shoulder injury, but entered in the second half, ultimately completing 10-of-13 passes for 106 yards and a touchdown. HC Gus Malzahn admitted on Tuesday that the 6-foot, 200-pounder is not back to 100%. At least at this juncture, that doesn't look like it will keep him out of action on Saturday. Through nine games, White has thrown for 1,617 yards with a 9/2 TD/INT ratio.
Nov 8 - 12:40 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White completed 14 of 18 attempts for 204 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the school's 38-14 win over Mississippi State.

Auburn's quarterback play has been a struggle, but White was solid in this one. Auburn opened the season rotating two or three players at the position, however, they seem confident in sticking with White moving forward.
Oct 8 - 3:26 PM

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said that redshirt sophomore QB Sean White will start against LSU on Saturday.

Malzahn wouldn't commit to White as the starter after Saturday's loss to Texas A&M. He has decided to stand by his man for the time being, saying, "We feel like he gives us the best chance to win." The 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt sophomore has passed for fewer than 150 yards in two of three games. All three of his touchdown passes came in a Week 2 win over Arkansas State. There is no fantasy intrigue for Saturday, particularly against a staunch LSU defense.

Sep 20 - 1:12 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White completed 17-of-23 passes for 244 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 51-14 win over Arkansas State.

In a moment of inspired madness, Auburn HC Gus Malzahn played just one quarterback against Arkansas State. A sharp contrast to the "playing three of them" strategy implemented in last weekend's loss to Clemson. White responded well enough, throwing two touchdown passes in the second quarter and wrapping up with one more in the third quarter. Up next on the docket, a home showdown with Texas A&M. The 6-foot, 200-pound White holds little fantasy value at this juncture.
Sep 11 - 1:00 AM

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn indicated that redshirt sophomore QB Sean White will start moving forward.

Malzahn was all over the map in his use of quarterbacks against Clemson on Saturday, to the point where even some of his players weren't quite sure of the logic behind his rotation of White (whom he had named starter at the end of camp), Jeremy Johnson and John Franklin III. If Malzahn is to be believed, Auburn will roll with White (exclusively) in the wars to come. During Saturday's loss, the 6-foot, 200-pounder completed 10-of-21 passes for 140 yards and an interception. In terms of fantasy impact, avoid avoid avoid.

Sep 6 - 2:03 PM

Several Auburn players expressed confusion as to why HC Gus Malzahn rotated through three quarterbacks against Clemson on Saturday.

Malzahn named Sean White the starter near the end of August and White did, indeed, start against Clemson. For one series. John Franklin III then proceeded to enter the game, followed by Jeremy Johnson just one series after that. Veterans Montravius Adams and Josh Holsey both came away flummoxed by the constant switches, while sophomore RB Chandler Cox said, "He talked about Sean and Sean was our guy." The three quarterbacks combined for a 15-of-30, 175-yard passing performance with two interceptions (White and Johnson each threw one). This three-headed monster will do battle against Arkansas State next weekend. There is no fantasy intrigue here on any front.

Sep 4 - 1:27 PM

Auburn named redshirt sophomore QB Sean White the starting quarterback.

This will surprise some folks, as JUCO transfer QB John Franklin III arrived with considerable Nick Marshall-comped hype. Franklin, however, was unable to win the starting job at his JUCO last year and remains extremely raw. White, on the other hand, ended last year as the starter. In all, the 6-foot, 200-pounder completed 83-of-143 passes for 1,167 yards and a 1/4 TD/INT rate in what was a trying year for all parties. noted that consistency in practices is what likely gave White the ultimate nod over Franklin and senior Jeremy Johnson. Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn and White were done no favors by the schedule. Next Saturday, the Tigers open against Clemson.
Aug 25 - 8:19 PM

Auburn redshirt freshman QB Sean White went 8-for-14 for 103 yards and two interceptions in Wednesday's 31-10 thrashing of Memphis in the Birmingham Bowl.

White was given every opportunity to run away with the starting job this season but balked each time. We were expecting Jeremy Johnson to get the call here, but HC Gus Malzahn announced before the game that White would start. That wasn't the best decision, though it didn't matter because Auburn's defense turned into the 1986 Bears for an afternoon (Auburn outgained Memphis 402-205). White's second interception was returned by Reggis Ball 53 yards for touchdown to tie the game at 10-10 late in the second quarter. Malzahn called the bullpen and Johnson came off the bench to run and pass for a touchdown. Even with Johnson graduating, White is far from assured the starting gig in 2016.

Auburn redshirt freshman QB Sean White will start against Memphis in the Birmingham Bowl.

Jeremy Johnson, who opened the season as the starter, played heavily in the last four games and played his best football of the season. White overtook Johnson during the year, with mixed results, but was sidelined with a knee injury. There will be plenty of talk this offseason regarding Auburn's starting job.
Wed, Dec 30, 2015 10:53:00 AM

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said redshirt freshman QB Sean White (knee) has "moved around very well" in pre-bowl practice.

"He moved around well even before the [Christmas] break," Malzahn said, "and then we had four days off right there and he's come back. I'm not going to say he's 100 percent but I think he's close." As to whether White or Jeremy Johnson will start in the Birmingham Bowl against Memphis on December 30, stay tuned. Malzahn refused to tip his hand, merely indicating that both quarterbacks have performed well in practice. Said the coach, "We've not made a decision on who's going to start. You could see both of them. We should have everybody offensively ready to go."
