Score Bucs' place-kicker job between Roberto Aguayo and Nick Folk tied

The Bucs place-kicking battle between Roberto Aguayo and Nick Folk will play out until September.

In a steady rain, both kickers made their first four field goals Sunday before each missed their last attempt.

"I had them both 4 out of 5,'' Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said. "But I'll be honest. I was watching the alignment up front. We'll get the tape. I thought they both missed their last one.''
