Friday August 28th, 2015

Although last season marked a step back from the previous season's national title game appearance, Auburn enters 2015 with heightened expectations thanks to the presence of junior quarterback Jeremy Johnson. The Tigers, who went 8-5 in 2014, will open this season in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game against Louisville at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

Johnson spent the last two years as Nick Marshall’s backup, but he is considered to have a strong and more accurate arm. Head coach Guz Malzahn has said that while Johnson might not be in the class of Marshall or Cam Newton as a rusher, “he probably runs a 4.6.”

Louisville finished 9–4 last season, losing to Georgia in the Belk Bowl to cap its first year in the ACC and its first under Bobby Petrino. Entering 2015, the quarterback position remains unsettled and the offense also has to replace its top three receivers. Brandon Radcliff, now a junior, returns at running back.
