Auburn Extends Streak, Florida Shuts Out Tennessee

NEW YORK -- No. 11 Auburn returned three interceptions for touchdowns in the fourth quarter Saturday to shock LSU 30-26, extending the nation's longest victory streak to 14 games. Auburn's defense recorded four touchdowns in all.


"I don't know if I've ever seen a greater defensive performance in college football," Auburn coach Terry Bowden said. "It was not just turnovers, it was the turnovers that went all the way for scores."


The win came courtesy of LSU's stubborn and seemingly inexplicable refusal to stop throwing the ball in the fourth quarter, even with a 23-9 lead.


And after Auburn (3-0, 2-0 SEC) went ahead on Brian Robinson's 41-yard interception return with 1:55 to play, LSU's Jamie Howard still found time to throw two more interceptions.


Auburn gained only 16 yards and one first down in the second half, but it ended up not mattering. The defense accounted for all four of the Tigers' touchdowns.


In other games Saturday:


Florida 31, Tennessee 0


At Knoxville, Tennessee, the No. 1 Gators (3-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) didn't equal their previous two 70-point performances, but Terry Dean still passed for 303 yards and two scores.


Florida beat a ranked opponent on the road for the first time in eight tries since Steve Spurrier became coach. It was the first shutout in 13 years for No. 15 Tennessee (1-2, 1-1).


Nebraska 49, UCLA 21


At Lincoln, Nebraska, Heisman Trophy candidate Tommie Frazier ran for one touchdown and threw for two more.


The No. 13 Bruins, who lost 14-13 to the Cornhuskers last year, fell to 2-1. Lawrence Phillips had 178 yards on 19 carries and one touchdown for No. 2 Nebraska (3-0).


Florida State 56, Wake Forest 14


At Winston-Salem, North Carolina, linebacker Derrick Brooks, returning from a two-game suspension, caused a fumble and blocked a punt for the No. 3 Seminoles (3-0, 3-0 ACC).


Brooks, suspended for taking part in a sporting goods shopping spree with a sports agent, didn't start the game. FSU's Danny Kannell hit 10 receivers in the first half, completing 18-of-24 for 177 yards.


Penn State 61, Iowa 21


At State College, Pennsylvania, backup tailback Mike Archie scored three touchdowns, and No. 6 Penn State (3-0), which scored 35 first-half points in its two previous games, led 35-0 after the first quarter.


Archie scored Penn State's sixth touchdown 37 seconds into the second quarter on a 4-yard run for a 42-0 lead, and coach Joe Paterno pulled starting quarterback Kerry Collins soon after.


Ki-Jana Carter, who scored four touchdowns in the Lions' first two games, got two more touchdowns against the Hawkeyes (2-1).


Notre Dame 21, Michigan State 20


At East Lansing, Michigan, Ron Powlus threw four interceptions but brought the No. 8 Irish (2-1) back from a 20-7 halftime deficit.


The redshirt freshman was 10-of-30 for 161 yards.


Notre Dame's 16th consecutive road win broke a 63-year-old record.
