Halftime: Battle between Tigers tied at 10-10

AUBURN, Ala. — The battle between Tigers for the SEC lead is tied at the half.

Auburn and LSU, the last of the SEC's unbeatens, have played to a 10-10 stalemate after 30 minutes at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Auburn scored first after a Zac Etheridge interception. The Tigers marched down the field before quarterback Cam Newton barreled in from 1-yard out for a touchdown to make it 7-0.

It was the 26th touchdown Newton has accounted for this season (13 passing, 13 rushing), tying the 40-year-old school record set by Pat Sullivan. Newton has 78 rushing yards.

The teams traded field goals to make it 10-3. Wes Byrum moved past John Vaughn for the school's scoring record with a 42-yarder in the second quarter but missed a 39-yarder and a chance to make it a two-score game.

LSU capitalized. Jordan Jefferson, who was pulled earlier in the game, came in for an injured Jarrett Lee and led the Bengal Tigers down the field, making a number of plays with his legs, including a third-and-16 conversion.

He dodged a tackle from Daren Bates to get into the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown run with 15 seconds left before halftime. Jefferson has 62 rushing yards.



Nice to run a TD play with 0 on the play clock.. Auburn better crank it up

AB - is it as obvious from the press box as it is from the other side of the field how often Fairley is held, or even tackled, without a flag thrown?

Yeah I think we got a LOT of no-calls or just plain bad calls (the Kodi Burns pass thing, wtf?) as a sort of karmic revenge for last week.
