Two suspended Auburn players will play vs. Clemson

Auburn at Miss State

To say that the Eagles' much talked about return to the option was a failure might be putting it too mildly.

The Tiger defense swallowed the Georgia Southern offense, keeping them to just 78 yards total and eight first downs for the entire game. Kam Martin unleashed another run through a wide open lane, romping 36 yards to the end zone for a 24-7 lead that had Georgia Southern almost put away before halftime.

To open the third quarter, Martin led the attack down to the 19-yard line, where Stidham hit junior wideout Ryan Davis on a crossing pattern that he caught in stride, then cut across the field and dove into the end zone through three Eagle defenders.

Auburn running back Kerryon Johnson finished with 136 yards, highlighted by a 60-yard touchdown burst in the first half, but suffered a leg injury on a long run in the second quarter and did not return.

Stidham struck a big blow when he ran a keeper untouched for a 14-yard touchdown midway through the half.

Stidham connected with Will Hastings on a 19-yard touchdown pass with 9:18 remaining for the final score.

Daniel Carlson knocked through two field goals and five extra points, becoming Auburn's all-time leader in career points with 364.

The Tigers will be without starting running back Kam Pettway, backup quarterback Sean White and wide receiver Kyle Davis against Georgia Southern. He did add this note, "That's completely between me and them". "Obviously, we have a stout defense".

"It was good for Jarrett to get a game under his belt", Malzahn said. Offensively, we did some good things, did some bad things. "We're just going to have to get better from it". "It's been two years since he played".

Auburn forced a 3-and-out on its first defensive series and - following a missed 53-yard attempt by Carlson - again forced a quick punt by the Eagles.

Perhaps the most awesome stat from Saturday night's 41-7 win in Jordan-Hare Stadium was holding GSU to 0-of-15 on third down conversions.

Senior linebacker Tre' Williams had 10 tackles, including two sacks, and sophomore Marlon Davidson also recorded two sacks for the Tigers.

However, both of the playmakers will be back in time for their tough road test against the defending National Champions.
