Halftime: Auburn leads ULM 31-3

AUBURN, Ala. — Any fears that Auburn might have a letdown against Louisiana-Monroe were dismissed quickly Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers have a 31-3 halftime lead against the Warhawks at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Auburn score 14 points on its first four plays. Onterio McCalebb zipped around the edge on for a 50-yard touchdown run 32 seconds in.

On the next drive, quarterback Cam Newton lofted an easy pass to a wide-open Emory Blake that went for a 94-yard touchdown to make it 14-0. It was the longest play from scrimmage in school history, topping Chris Todd's 93-yard touchdown pass to Terrell Zachery in last season's opener.

Mike Dyer added a 3-yard touchdown run and Quindarius Carr a 16-yard touchdown reception.

Newton is 11-for-14 for 231 yards and two scores. He hasn't had a designed run and likely won't play much, if at all, in the second half.

ULM quarterback Kolton Browning has had success with short passes. He's 18-for-25 for 149 yards but hasn't been able to get the Warhawks in the end zone.

The Warhawks have three rushing yards on 15 attempts.

I don't think ULM will score in the 2nd half ;-)
