Quarterback Bo Nix will look to begin building on a solid first season when No. 8 Auburn opens the season at home against No. 23 Kentucky on Saturday in SEC play.
Nix set school freshman records of 2,542 passing yards and 16 touchdown passes but the belief is his ceiling is much higher.
"He's a different player right now and he should be," Tigers coach Gus Malzahn said. "He's got a year of experience. He's one of our leaders. ... I think you'll see him definitely improve."
