AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Cam Newton connected with Emory Blake on a
school-record 94-yard touchdown pass on his first throw Saturday as
No. 10 Auburn routed Louisiana-Monroe 52-3.
Newton completed 14 of 19 passes for 245 yards with three
touchdowns before sitting out most of the second half for the
Tigers (5-0), who finally got a stress-free win after three
straight close ones. The Southeastern Conference's top rusher,
Newton didn't have a carry other than a sack, minimizing punishment
in the mismatch.
ULM (1-3) fell to 3-35-1 all time against SEC teams and has been
outscored 190-10 in the last four meetings with the Tigers.
Auburn had risen to the Top 10 after three straight wins that
weren't decided until the final minutes, but didn't need any drama
in this one.
