AUBURN -- Ahhh, homecoming. It's a light week leading up to a light game with a chance to write about players down the depth chart.
Problem is, so many of Auburn's freshmen have played this season and been written about.
As Auburn gets set to play OVC opponent Tennessee Tech this week, it'll be interesting to see what Auburn does with quarterback Kodi Burns. The coaches had to burn his redshirt earlier this season, so perhaps he'll get extended action against TTU.
If so, it'll be interesting to see if Al Borges et al let Burns do more than the limited game package he has shown so far this season. Seems like it would help Kodi Burns and help Auburn.
If they need him to play later this season, he will have shown a few more things on film. He has an arm, arguably the strongest arm on the team. Might as well make Georgia and Alabama respect it.
In other notes, it's interesting that Auburn jumped to No. 19 in the AP poll and No. 16 in the coaches' poll with a not-so-impressive showing against Ole Miss. Other teams lost, of course, and maybe this wacky season has taught poll voters to appreciate the value of a win ... style points optional.
Oh, and suspended wide receiver Robert Dunn will be back this week. He's expected to play against TTU.
More details in Monday's Star. Enjoy a beautiful Sunday.
