Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin isn’t tipping his hand on No. 22 Auburn’s starting quarterback against LSU.

T.J. Finley is a former LSU starter who transferred after the spring. Finley staked his claim on the job when he came off the bench to replace third-year starter Bo Nix and ultimately throw for the go-ahead touchdown against Georgia State in Saturday’s last-minute 34-24 victory.

It remains to be seen if Auburn will turn to Finley to start the Southeastern Conference opener under Harsin. The coach is hoping to jump-start an offense sputtered in the past two games.

Harsin says he expects both quarterbacks to be ready.
