Trotter looking to take next step

By Charles Bennett

AUBURN – Like a kid who just passed his drivers’ license test, Auburn’s Barrett Trotter is ready to get back behind the wheel of the Tigers’ offense and take it for another spin.

By all accounts, Trotter made a successful debut as Auburn’s starting quarterback in last week’s 42-38 season-opening victory over Utah State, but the road gets a little trickier on Saturday against Mississippi State (1-0) in the SEC opener for both teams.

“It was definitely a confidence booster for me to be able to go in there and play relatively well and help us come back at the end of the game,” Trotter said. “There were some positives there. But at the same time, we’ve got to play a lot better than that.

“I’ve watched Mississippi State. They’re going to be a lot better than Utah State. I know they’re going to be a lot faster, a lot stronger, a lot bigger. So we’ve got to really get more prepared this week.”
