AUBURN, Ala. (AL.com)- Five-hundred and four days passed since the last time Jarrett Stidham played in front of a crowded stadium. With all eyes on the former Baylor quarterback on Saturday, he didn't disappoint.

Stidham completed 16-of-20 passes for 267 yards during Auburn's A-Day spring game, earning offensive MVP honors while working with the Tigers' first-team offense and playing just the first half. He led scoring drives on five of his six possessions, including three touchdown-scoring drives.
