GeauxTigerNation writers Gary Laney and David Helman get you ready for the season with a daily breakdown throughout August of what LSU is facing in the fall, from its opponents, to its road trips to who it's recruiting. Today, David Helman previews the Tigers' September game against Auburn with Ryan Wood of the Auburn-Opelika News.

Q: Kiehl Frazier recently won the starting quarterback job from Clint Moseley. Was this the expected outcome of that competition, and what does Frazier bring to the Auburn offense?

Frazier was the expected conclusion to the race and really has been because of the momentum he carried out of the spring. The biggest reason for that is that Moseley has been battling a shoulder injury that has hampered his ability to throw up until 10 days before the game. If you have a two-man race and only one can guy make all the throws, he's probably the one that is going to get the job. Also, Frazier can make more plays running the football -- something Moseley does not possess.
