That's how the first half ended, and we expect it could get pretty ugly for the home team going forward. The ball continued the other way into the end zone where a swarm of Auburn players were there to recover it for a touchdown. The Auburn Tigers were on the ropes in the second quarter against Texas A&M in Week 9, but by halftime they were up by eight points.

    Quarterback Braxton Burmeister got his first win as a starter as OR ended a three-game losing streak by beating Utah 41-20 at home. Stanford enters the contest on a five-game winning streak.
