Nick Marshall confident at Auburn QB

AUBURN, Ala. -

Sunday, Auburn's new quarterback Nick Marshall got to face the media for the first time since being named the Tigers' starting quarterback on Saturday.

The junior college transfer says he has been working hard in camp to get ready for this moment.

He says he cannot wait for the first game against Washington State.

Marshall vows that he and his teammates will win a lot of game. The quarterback says it helps that he has experience in the fast paced spread offense.

"I just came in and did what I do best," Marshall said. "Just whatever happened took control of it. I have been running this kind of offense since I left high school. I did some of that in JUCO too. So I am well fit for it."

"It as a close battle," said Head Coach Gus Malzahn. "But, the bottom line is when nick knew what to do, he out performed the others. The things he felt comfortable with. We really feel like he will have a chance to improve and get better with each practice and each game."

Malzahn says Central alum Jonathan Wallace will be the backup quarterback.

Behind him will be true freshman Jeremy Johnson. Malzahn would like Johnson to redshirt as long as injuries don't become a problem.

All three quarterbacks will practice with the team, and not the scout team.
