AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn's Demond Washington will be a busy
man over the next month.

The third-ranked Tigers' cornerback/kick returner faces three
prolific receivers in a row. The stretch starts Saturday with
Chattanooga's Joel Bradford. Then come matchups with more
high-profile stars in Georgia's A.J. Green and Alabama's Julio

Auburn coach Gene Chizik says Washington will face "some
unbelievable challenges."

Washington mostly rose to the occasion last weekend at
Mississippi, with a goal-line interception and a 95-yard return.

Washington's role has grown increasingly significant in a shaky
secondary further depleted by injuries to Aairon Savage and
T'Sharvan Bell.

The first challenge is Bradford. He's leading the FCS in
receiving yards per game.
