"Well I haven't seen Kiehl Frazier throw a pass yet so if we played tomorrow, it probably wouldn't be him. But the two quarterbacks that we have, Barrett Trotter, Clint Moseley, they're in great competion. They've done everything we've asked them to do. I'm really proud of both of 'em, they both bring a lot to the table. We'll see what Kiehl does when he throws his first pass at Auburn. And again we're gonna accept all comers."

Chizik and the Tigers open the season in just over a month, September 3rd at home against Utah State.
