The Auburn football program received some good news this weekend regarding star quarterback Jarrett Stidham.
On Friday night, the third-year sophomore announced that he has decided to return to school for the 2018 season. The Baylor transfer excelled in his first season on the field for the Tigers.
“Made the decision to stay at Auburn. We have unfinished business and I’m excited for what the 2018 season holds! War Eagle, Auburn Family!” Stidham wrote on Twitter.
That unfinished business is another run at the College Football Playoff after Auburn fell just short by losing to Georgia in the SEC Championship.
During the 2017 season, which included wins over Alabama and Georgia, the two National Championship participants, Stidham completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 3,158 yards, 18 touchdowns and six interceptions.
