QB Johnson makes strong case to start in Auburn spring game (Yahoo Sports)
Jeremy Johnson made a strong case to start at quarterback in Auburn's spring game. The junior threw for 252 yards and two touchdowns in one half Saturday as Team Auburn topped Team Tigers 24-14. Coach Gus Malzahn said afterward that competition was still open for the starting job. Thomas has been in competition with junior college transfer Jovon Robinson and Peyton Barber to replace the SEC's leading rusher, Cameron Artis-Payne.
Zaire hits long pass, competition with Golson continues (Yahoo Sports)
Notre Dame's spring game did little to determine who will be the starting quarterback in the fall other than showing Malik Zaire can throw a long pass but can't catch one. Zaire threw a perfectly timed 68-yard touchdown pass that Will Fuller caught at the 6 and raced in for a touchdown midway through the second quarter. Redfield appeared to taunt Zaire lying on the ground, then took off and was credited with a touchdown even though officials blew the whistle at midfield. Coach Brian Kelly said each player needs to focus on his own play.
Dak Prescott sharp in Mississippi State spring game (Yahoo Sports)
Dak Prescott is doing nothing to temper the massive expectations for his final college season. The Mississippi State quarterback completed 20 of 29 passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns Saturday during the Bulldogs' spring game, spreading the ball around the field with the poise expected from a senior who's already among the school's leaders in just about every passing category. Now Mississippi State is trying to make sure the rest of the roster is capable of supporting him. The early returns look promising: De'Runnya Wilson caught five passes for 92 yards and a touchdown, and the Bulldogs' rebuilt offensive line - which will have at least three new starters next season - usually gave the quarterbacks enough time to read the field and make throws.
Coker delivers top QB performance in Alabama spring game (Yahoo Sports)
Alabama coach Nick Saban doesn't think it's fair to pass judgment on his quarterbacks based on the spring game. Jake Coker was easily the most productive of the Crimson Tide passers on Saturday in his second bid to win the starting job after transferring from Florida State last summer. He led the White team featuring the first-team offense to a 27-14 win over the defense-led Crimson before 65,157 fans. Saban said Coker and Alec Morris had a big advantage in playing with the starting offense, with the Tide rebuilding depth after losing nine starters.

Huskers' Tim Miles optimistic despite loss of players, coach (Yahoo Sports)
His sunny disposition is being put to the test this offseason, though, after the unexpected losses of two players and an assistant coach and the expected departure of All-Big Ten guard Terran Petteway. Petteway said Thursday he was declaring for the draft, and on Sunday assistant coach Chris Harriman told Miles he was leaving to become associate head coach at New Mexico.
