Nick Marshall threw four touchdowns in two quarters as Auburn's first team routed its second team 58-3 on Saturday in a spring football game.

Marshall, the Tigers' starter last season who occasionally struggled through the air, completed 13 of 22 passes for 236 yards. Wearing an orange non-contact jersey, Marshall kept only once on a zone-read play.

Backup Jeremy Johnson had less success with the second-team offense in the first half before moving to the first-team offense in the second. Combined, he was 9-of-21 for 130 yards and a 38-yard touchdown pass to Tony Stevens.

Auburn's receiving corps, the subject of much buzz throughout the spring, also impressed. Sammie Coates made a one-handed touchdown catch, D'haquille Williams debuted with five catches for 88 yards and a touchdown. Quan Bray caught two touchdown passes.

Corey Grant gained 128 yards on just five carries, including a 54-yard touchdown run.
