Halftime: Auburn leads Ole Miss 34-17

OXFORD, Miss. — The Bowl Championship Series' No. 1 team looks the part after one half at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Auburn has a 34-17 lead against Ole Miss after 30 minutes thanks to Cam Newton's passing and a number of explosive plays.

Newton, the SEC's rushing leader, hasn't run much, but he has completed 15 of 21 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown. He also caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Kodi Burns out of the Wildcat formation.

Darvin Adams has six catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. Emory Blake has five catches for 86 yards. The Tigers have 348 yards of offense.

Ole Miss scored first, getting an 83-yard touchdown run from Jeff Scott on the second play of the game.

Auburn answered with Burns' touchdown pass to Newton and went ahead on a 68-yard touchdown run by Onterio McCalebb.

The Rebels tied it at 14 on a 29-yard touchdown pass from Jeremiah Masoli to Markeith Summers, but it was almost all Auburn the rest of the half.

Wes Byrum's 25-yard field goal made it 17-14 before Demond Washington picked off a Masoli pass at the Tigers' own 2-yard line. Auburn drove 98 yards, getting a 24-yard touchdown pass from Newton to Adams to finish the drive.

After an Ole Miss field goal, Washington broke free for a 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, the second of his career.

After a fourth-down stop in Rebels territory, Byrum made a 35-yard field goal just before halftime to make it 34-17.
