KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Auburn and Tennessee's rushing attacks
have left opponents seeing double this season.

The teams are relying on tailback tandems who combine speed and
power to keep opposing defenses off balance as they rack up yards.

The Vols enter Saturday's matchup with the league's top running
back in Montario Hardesty, who's averaging 121.2 yards per game and
5.8 yards per carry and has four touchdowns.

He's backed up by Bryce Brown, who's averaging 53.8 yards per
game and 5 yards per carry.

Auburn's Ben Tate ranks third in the conference with 103 yards
per game. Tate shares the backfield with freshman Onterio McCalebb,
who averages 91.2 yards per game, 6.8 yards per carry and has three
touchdowns.
