Auburn Back to .500

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Kodi Burns rushed for 158 yards and two long
second-half touchdowns and passed for another 130 yards, pushing
Auburn to a 37-20 win over Tennessee-Martin on Saturday.

The Tigers (5-5) had lost four straight games and found themselves tied midway through the third quarter with the Football Championship Subdivision Skyhawks (7-3) before Burns started breaking loose.

He scampered 31 yards for a touchdown on a third-and-6 play to give Auburn a 27-20 lead in the third quarter. Burns, who had passed for a career-high 319 yards a week earlier, became the first Auburn quarterback to run for more than 100 yards since Phil Gargis against Florida State in 1976.
