AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Number 18 Auburn pulled off two late scores Saturday night for a 23-to-13 win over Kansas State.
Auburn's offense struggled all night and Kansas State seemed poised for its 18th straight season-opening win.
But Auburn finally wore down the Wildcats just enough.
Brandon Cox threw a touchdown pass to Gabe McKenzie with 2:01 remaining and Antonio Coleman returned a fumble for a score moments later.
Cox found McKenzie alone in the left corner of the end zone from the 3 to cap a 57-yard, seven-play drive.
The Wildcats got the ball back but Quentin Groves sacked Josh Freeman, forcing a fumble that Coleman returned 34 yards for a touchdown.
