Former Baylor QB Jarrett Stidham transferred to Auburn.

This is a big-time get by Gus Malzahn and crew. Ranked as ESPN's No. 1-ranked junior college recruit, Stidham didn't play this season following his transfer from Baylor. He's eligible to play next season and has three seasons of eligibility remaining. As a true freshman for Art Briles' last Baylor team, Stidham threw for 1,265 yards and 12 touchdowns in three starts. Stidham left the school after Briles was fired. He wound up at Auburn, he says, because of his relationship with Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee. Next summer, he'll compete for the quarterback job with incumbent Sean White. We'd install Stidham as a heavy favorite in that competition.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn believes that redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) will be "close to 100%" by the Sugar Bowl.

Malzahn made similar statements at the end of November, a good sign that White remains on track to progress toward starting versus Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl on January 2. The 6-foot, 200-pounder has dealt with a balky wing for much of the second half of the 2016 campaign. Jeremy Johnson started each of Auburn's final two regular-season games in White's place.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn indicated that redshirt sophomore RB Kamryn Pettway (leg) will be "close to 100%" for the Sugar Bowl.

Pettway has missed four games this season due to injury, most recently sitting out contests against Georgia and Alabama A&M in November before coming back in ineffective fashion against Alabama in the final game of the regular campaign. The 6-foot, 242-pounder has been largely dynamite when healthy and is currently sitting on 1,123 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. He will have another few weeks to rehab his leg injury before the Sugar Bowl kicks off on January 2.

Former Baylor QB Jarrett Stidham wants to make his transfer decision by Christmas.

Auburn is thought to be the front-runner for Stidham's services. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound gunslinger offered high praise for Tigers OC Rhett Lashlee, saying, "He's a great dude. I've gotten to know him a lot over this semester. Really, really solid dude." Another one of Stidham's dudes would be current Baylor OC Kendal Briles, who could throw an interesting wrench into matters. Said Stidham, who still talks with Briles frequently, " I'm still waiting to see what happens with him and where he might go and just take it into consideration."

Auburn senior WR Tony Stevens has accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Stevens leads Auburn's receiving corp in both yardage and touchdowns. All relative, though, all relative. Playing in a passing offense that rarely rises above serviceable, the 6-foot-4, 212-pound senior has caught 29 passes for 466 yards and three touchdowns in eight games. An undisclosed injury knocked him out of commission for several contests.

Auburn senior DL Montravius Adams accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Heading into the postseason, Adams has a career-high 8.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. The All-SEC performer also has an interception and two blocked kicks. We like the 6-foot-3, 281-pound Adams' movement skills for his size.

Former Baylor QB Jarrett Stidham is visiting Auburn on Tuesday.

Stidham has been linked to Auburn, Florida and Texas A&M. He spent one season at Baylor before leaving prior to the season following the issues in the Baylor athletic department followed by the firing of Art Briles. Stidham sat out the 2016 season in terms of the FBS level, so he might be eligible to play immediately for whatever program picks him up. He hopes to make that decision this winter.

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.

Former Baylor QB Jarrett Stidham and Florida have been in contact, according to 247 Sports' Luke Stampini.

Stidham has also been in contact with Auburn and Texas A&M and will likely make his decision in December in order to enroll in January. The former coveted recruit left Baylor during the summer. Florida lost their top quarterback Will Grier to transfer following a suspension and Luke Del Rio started in his place this year before being injured.

Auburn redshirt sophomore RB Kamryn Pettway (leg) rushed for 17 yards on 12 carries in Saturday's 30-12 loss to Alabama.

We really didn't even need to tell you who won, here. Instead, we could have just told you that Auburn rushed for 66 yards as a team and you would know all the same. Alabama's defense simply doesn't allow other teams to run. Period. It didn't help that Pettway has been dealing with a leg injury of late, one which had forced him to sit out two straight games. This recent three-game stretch of injury and Alabama has been disappointing, but Pettway had surpassed 120 yards rushing in six of his seven other games played prior to dropping off the map for most of November.

Auburn senior QB Jeremy Johnson will start in place of the injured Sean White in Saturday's Iron Bowl clash with Alabama.

This makes two consecutive starts for Johnson, as White has been limited of late by a shoulder injury initially suffered against Ole Miss on October 29. Against Alabama A&M last weekend, Johnson completed 19-of-14 passes for 147 yards and a touchdown while rushing for two additional scores. As if it needs to be said, Alabama proper offers a quantum leap in terms of competition.

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.

Auburn redshirt sophomore RB Kamryn Pettway (leg) is expected to play in the Iron Bowl on Saturday.

Pettway backfield friend Kerryon Johnson said that Pettway is "ready to go," while HC Gus Malzahn (more of an authority on these matters) has confirmed that the 6-foot, 242-pound redshirt sophomore will do his best to drill through the brick wall that is Alabama's run defense on Saturday. Entering the practice week, Pettway had missed two consecutive contests (against Georgia and Alabama A&M). In just seven games this season, he has rushed for 1,106 yards (6.4 YPC) and seven touchdowns.

Auburn redshirt junior edge rusher Carl Lawson went through Senior Day activities, meaning he will likely enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

We didn't need Lawson going through Senior Day to know he is destined for the upcoming draft, as Lawson flirted with leaving last year. He battled injuries for the previous two seasons, but when fully healthy Lawson is one of the most complete edge rushers in this class. He can when with power and explosion.
Nov 21 - 9:14 AM

Auburn senior QB Jeremy Johnson will start in place of the injured Sean White in Saturday's showdown with Alabama A&M.

White will sit out with a shoulder injury. While the choice of Johnson over John Franklin III might seem outwardly odd -- he has attempted all of six passes this season -- HC Gus Malzahn indicated that the start was somewhat symbolic for Johnson in his final season of collegiate ball. "Jeremy Johnson's going to start us out on Senior Day," Malzahn said. "I know our team's excited for him. He's excited... I'm excited for him. John Franklin will get a chance to do things too, but we're very excited for Jeremy. He'll be ready to go."
