Marshall leads Auburn 1st team to rout of 2nd team
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) Nick Marshall threw four touchdowns in two quarters as Auburn's first team routed its second team 58-3 on Saturday in a spring football game.
Marshall, the Tigers' starter last season who occasionally struggled through the air, completed 13 of 22 passes for 236 yards. Wearing an orange non-contact jersey, Marshall kept only once on a zone-read play.
"(Marshall) is playing great right now," wide receiver Sammie Coates said. "He is throwing the ball down the field and reading right. If he keeps moving in the right direction we are going to get better behind him."
