New day, familiar questions for Malzahn's Tigers

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- The Auburn Tigers begin their "new day" with some of the same old issues.

Those include question marks at quarterback and receiver and a defensive front that must show it's ready to stand up to the bullying Southeastern Conference.

First-year coach Gus Malzahn has trumpeted the "it's a new day" theme since his hiring after last season's 3-9 freefall. H-back Jay Prosch says the coaches have "brought a fire back into us."

Malzahn's first priority was finding a quarterback to run his fast-paced offense from a four-man competition that includes junior college transfer Nick Marshall, freshman Jeremy Johnson and returnees Kiehl Frazier and Jonathan Wallace.

A bowl bid would be a big step for Auburn, which hasn't missed the postseason in consecutive seasons since 1998-99.
