A-Day second-quarter notes

AUBURN -- Make that two Ben Tate touchdowns, eight and 10 yards, and Kodi Burns just struck with a 28-yard touchdown lead to Robert Dunn.

And who is this Anthony Jemison kid? The walk-on running back looks pretty good for a walk-on running back who's not even on the roster.

Maybe it's because the McCalla product is wearing former Tiger Carnell Williams' No. 24. Or maybe it's because he just spun away from starting linebacker Craig Stevens.

Don't look now, but Neil Caudle is finally seeing action. It's 23-0, Blue.

Make it halftime, and it's 23-0, Blue. Caudle did some nice things running out of the pocket and threw a couple of nice balls.

According to halftime stats, Burns and Chris Todd have combined to complete 19 of 24 passes for 249 yards and one touchdown. They're considered co-first-team quarterbacks, so their stats count for Blue.

Caudle counts for White, and he's 5-for-11 for 26 yards. Perhaps it's unfair that the coaches didn't let White have the ball until late in the second quarter.

... We just got more detailed halftime stats. Burns was 10-for-12 for 111 yards and a touchdown, and Todd was 9-for-12 for 115 yards. Of 318 total yards, 253 came through the air. Dunn, who missed a lot of practice time because of morning classes, had three catches for 52 yards and a touchdown at the half.
