AUBURN, Ala. -- Just when you thought Arkansas backup quarterback Tyler Wilson was on his way to shattering all sorts of passing records, Auburn does what it's done all season.

The Tigers, getting two big interceptions by senior linebacker Josh Bynes, shook off Wilson's heroic efforts and pulled away for a wild 65-43 win over the Hogs on Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium to stay unbeaten.

Wilson, filling in for the injured Ryan Mallett, carved the Auburn secondary apart for much of the game, and the Hogs went ahead 43-37 early in the fourth quarter on the strength of his fourth touchdown pass of the game.

But from there, it was all Auburn, which scored 28 unanswered points in the kind of fourth quarter that's become old hat for this team. Bynes had interceptions on back-to-back possessions, and Zac Etheridge also returned a fumble 47 yards for a touchdown.

The Tigers (7-0, 4-0) have another big test next weekend when LSU comes to town.

The 108 points scored by the two teams marks the most points ever scored in an SEC non-overtime game.
