Auburn Tigers quarterback Jarrett Stidham has made an announcement on Friday evening about his football future. Instead of going to the NFL, Stidham, who had transferred to Auburn from the Baylor Bears prior to this season, said that he will return for his senior season.

The redshirt quarterback just completed his sophomore season with the Tigers. Auburn was defeated in its Bowl game, as they lost to the undefeated and self-proclaimed UCF Knights, who completed the season with a perfect 13-0 record.

The Knights won 34-27 in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on New Year’s Day. Stidham went 28 of 43 for 331 passing yards. He also had a touchdown and two interceptions in the game.

On the season, his first in the Southeastern Conference, Stidham went 246 of 370 for 3,158 passing yards in 14 games. He also had 18 touchdowns and six interceptions.

He began his career with the Bears in 2015, as he appeared in 10 games. He went 75 of 109 for 1,265 passing yards. He also had 12 touchdowns and two interceptions.

Stidham said that he returned to the school, because of unfinished business. Auburn led the SEC West Division with a 10-4 overall record, but ended the season on a two-game losing streak, being defeated by the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship game and the aforementioned loss to the Knights.
