Could Auburn play three quarterbacks against Kentucky?

On Wednesday, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn admitted he doesn’t know who his starting quarterback will be against Kentucky. So far, the quarterback battle has been between Jeremy Johnson, who started the first three games, and Sean White, who started the last two.

Now, it looks like there may be a third contender. Alabama radio host Keith Hill tweeted today that he’s hearing JuCo quarterback Jason Smith could also be thrown in the mix. Hill says Smith reminds the staff of former Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall, who led the Tigers to the 2014 BCS National Championship Game. Smith enrolled at Auburn in January, and has only played wide receiver for the Tigers thus far. As a JuCo QB, he threw for 1,566 yards and 18 touchdowns and rushed for another 10 touchdowns in 10 games.

While dual-threat quarterbacks are Kentucky’s kryptonite, I’m going by the old adage that if you have three starting quarterbacks, you actually have none.

Here are Smith’s JuCo highlights if you’re curious:

    Your “If you have three starting quarterbacks, then you actually have none” saying is true……except for Ohio State last year.

      In the case of OSU last year, though, there was never a QB controversy, just injuries.

    We only play one quarterback and will get clobbered 28 to 7.

    They run the same offense as EKU. Just way better at every position.
