Touchdown Auburn, Newton to Kodi Burns

The stadium erupts in orange as the Tigers cash in on their fourth possession of the game. Cam Newton looked off a receiver, saw Burns wide open in the middle of the field and hit him. Burns had open field and leaped into the end zone for the TD.

Auburn quickened its tempo on that drive and it made a difference.

Now the Ducks try an end-around on the kickoff return and the Tigers wreck it. So the Ducks are deep in their own territory to start.

And just as I write that, Thomas, on play action, hits Jeff Maehl, Oregon’s big play receiver for 81 yards and right into scoring position. That up-and-down shootout has arrived, it seems, after both teams needed to find their rhythm on offense.
