Caudle named backup quarterback

Junior Neil Caudle will be Auburn's backup quarterback, Tigers coach Gene Chizik announced Friday.

Caudle battled true freshman Tyrik Rollison for the backup role after Auburn named Chris Todd its starter two weeks ago.

"He's worked really, really hard for this," Chizik said. "I'm really proud for him. I really feel good about where he is. If he has a chance to go in the football game, we feel like he has the best chance to win."

Chizik said Friday's decision does not necessarily mean Rollison will redshirt this season.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Caudle has only played in mop-up duty during his time at Auburn. He has thrown eight career passes, completing four of them for 32 yards.

Check back for more in a little bit.
