Auburn coach Gene Chizik said freshman Jonathan Wallace is "in strong consideration"
to start at quarterback against lowly New Mexico State. Starter Clint Moseley injured an ankle, and former starter Kiehl Frazier was sacked four times in the Tigers' 63-21 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday night. Chizik said Sunday...
"There were times when he got out of a little bit of trouble and extended a play with his feet and made a play," "I thought he was very productive, even running the football. He fumbled the ball two times last week, he came back and he was very adamant about protecting the ball every time he carried it. I thought he made very good decisions. The most impressive part to me was he stood back in the pocket when it was time to throw the football, and he made some accurate throws with some pressure around him. That was good to see."
Auburn's offense is currently the nation's 120th-rated offense.
