The Auburn Tigers and Barrett Trotter got off to a solid start to their season, but things have gone downhill fast. Auburn are still in decent shape at 5-2 with only one SEC loss, but their quarterback situation might prevent them from keeping that SEC record unless rectified shortly. That's why, after three consecutive extremely poor performances, Gene Chizik has reportedly decided to bench Trotter in favor of Clint Moseley. AP SEC writer John Zenor passed along the info via twitter.
In Auburn's ugly win over Florida on Saturday, the two teams used an incredible seven players at the quarterback position between them. One of those was Trotter, who was pulled after starting 2-8 passing. Moseley was not spectacular, but much better than Trotter as he went 4-7 for 90 yards in the second half as Auburn gave the ball to Michael Dyer 23 times.
Over his last three games combined, Trotter is 20-50 passing for 226 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.
