He has completed more than 60 percent of his passes. He has six touchdown passes and one interception. He has led the Tigers to four straight wins and a top 10 ranking when such things certainly weren't ensured.
So why, entering today's top 10 matchup against Tennessee, all the pressure?
Such is the nature of Southeastern Conference football, the home to more second-guessing than an election in Florida. Campbell is a senior who ranks among Auburn's career leaders in every meaningful passing statistic: yards, attempts, completions, percentage and touchdown passes. But he was the quarterback when Auburn got off to a shaky 0-2 start last year, and he failed to throw for a touchdown in either the season-opening loss to Southern California or the next setback, on the road at Georgia Tech.
In Auburn, Ala., people have a way of remembering these things.
(Thank goodness, for his own safety, Campbell threw a pair of touchdowns last year against Alabama, and the Tigers won.)
Auburn running backs Carnell "Cadillac" Williams and Ronnie Brown will get their carries -- and their yards -- against the Volunteers' defense. Will Campbell help, or hinder, their cause?
