AUBURN — After Bryan Harsin's quarterback change against Georgia State, the question of the week leading up to Auburn football's SEC opener will be whether Bo Nix or T.J. Finley starts.

This week's depth chart release doesn't necessarily hint at the direction Harsin is moving. There were no changes. Nix remains atop the quarterback list with Finley behind him — no "OR" designation. But that doesn't mean Nix is inked as a starter, because in past weeks, Harsin hasn't always made changes on the depth chart even when a starter-backup situation has changed.

For instance, Zion Puckett is starting at safety with Smoke Monday, but Bydarrius Knighten is still listed the No. 1 over Puckett.

Here is the full depth chart ahead of Auburn's trip to LSU.

No. 2: T.J. Finley, so.
