. — AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn coach Gene Chizik said there's no chance he'll wait until the season opener to unveil his starting quarterback.
Kiehl Frazier and Clint Moseley are still battling for the starting job two weeks before the Sept. 1 opener against Clemson at the Georgia Dome. Chizik said after a scrimmage Saturday that neither has distinguished himself from the other in the competition.
Now, the coaches have two days off to review practice film and scrutinize the performance of the quarterbacks and other players fighting for jobs.
"We're going to have to really do a great, thorough evaluation of this past week," Chizik said. "And some probably over the next week as well. We're definitely going to name a starter before game day. That's going to happen."
Chizik was critical of both quarterbacks' play Friday evening.
"I'm not sure exactly what he wants, but he was not pleased with us," Frazier said. "He's the one that makes the decision so we have to come out and do better."
Moseley said he and Frazier have both improved significantly during preseason camp. He has been limited by a sore shoulder since spring practice.
"It's night and day from where we were at the beginning of this camp, as far as football IQ, knowing blitzes and being able to pick them up without hesitating," Moseley said. "We've gained a lot of football knowledge and gotten better mechanically.
"As far as anticipation, yeah it's there but you can't focus on that," Moseley said. "It's part of the battle, zoning everything else out and being about to focus on the competition."
