AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — The Auburn Tigers are still seeking out game-ready wide receivers.

Only Emory Blake and tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen produced in the opening loss to Clemson. It's a carryover issue from last season.

Auburn (0-1) will almost certainly need some help from other receivers in the passing game Saturday at Mississippi State (1-0), led by cornerback Johnthan Banks and a veteran secondary.

Quarterback Kiehl Frazier completed four passes apiece to Blake and Lutzenkirchen in his starting debut.

Tailback Onterio McCalebb added two short completions and Quan Bray caught an 8-yarder.

Auburn coach Gene Chizik says the Tigers have "got to develop a trust that other receivers are capable of making plays." He says they have confidence in other receivers but the youngsters must show they can produce in games.
