AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall might have become a star in Georgia's secondary.

On Saturday, he and the seventh-ranked Tigers will instead be focusing on the Bulldogs' defensive backs.

Marshall spent one season as Georgia DB before being dismissed from the team - along with two other players - in February 2012 for stealing from a teammate.

Georgia coach Mark Richt says Marshall could have been "an all-conference type guy" in the secondary. Auburn's Gus Malzahn said Tuesday Marshall has excelled at being calm whatever the situation and expects more of the same Saturday.

Marshall has resurrected his career as a dual-threat quarterback after one season running a junior college offense. He's coming off a 214-yard rushing performance against Tennessee.

Marshall calls Georgia "just another opponent that's in our way."
