By  | 

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Kodi Burns had three 1-yard touchdown runs
and threw for another in Auburn's 49-24 win over Mississippi State
on Saturday night.

Ben Tate ran for 159 yards and Onterio McCalebb got 120 yards,
becoming the first Auburn freshman to run for more than 100 in his
first two games.

Burns, the Tigers' former starting QB, took snaps from offensive
coordinator Guz Malzahn's wildcat formation on all four TDs he had
a hand in, including the 13-yard pass to Philip Lutzenkirchen.

Anthony Dixon carried 20 times for 92 yards and a score for
Mississippi State (1-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) after sitting
out a game's suspension following a DUI arrest.

Darvin Adams caught five passes for 116 yards, all in the first
half for Auburn (2-0, 1-0).
