LaFell's TD catch lifts LSU past Auburn

By  | 

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - This time it was Jarret Lee and Brandon
LaFell who rescued LSU against Auburn.

The duo connected on an 18-yard touchdown pass with 1:03 left to
lift No. 6 LSU to yet another dramatic comeback win over No. 10
Auburn, 26-21 in an SEC West showdown that once again produced a
fantastic finish and wild momentum swings.

Lee took over for an injured Andrew Hatch in the third quarter
and produced a series of big plays to make up for a lousy start for
LSU (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference). Lee missed his first five
throws, with an interception returned for a touchdown.

Auburn (3-1, 1-1) moved to LSU's 47 on the final drive, with
help from Rahim Alem's roughing the passer penalty. Alem atoned
with a sack of Chris Todd to recoup the 15-yard loss.

Todd's desperation fourth-and-25 pass to Rod Smith came up short
of the first down.
