After playing during the second half of the Tigers' 24-7 loss to Arkansas in Week 6, quarterback Clint Moseley has been named the starter for Auburn's road game at Ole Miss on Saturday.

Moseley starts ahead of sophomore Kiehl Frazier, who completed 9 of 14 passes for 118 yards and an interception during the first half against the Razorbacks. On the season, Frazier is 56 of 103 for 664 yards, two touchdowns and eight interceptions. For much of the season, Frazier has shown a lack of confidence and looked uncomfortable in Scot Loeffler's pro-style offense.
In the second half against Arkansas, Moseley completed 13 of 21 passes for 163 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. He was sacked five times. Moseley took over for starter Barrett Trotter last season and completed 66 of 108 passes for 800 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions.
The move to start Moseley likely signals that Loeffler and head coach Gene Chizik do not believe Frazier can adequately run Loeffler's offense. What is Frazier's future with the Tigers? At this point, no one knows.
