Defense delivers again for Auburn

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

The defense delivers again for Auburn, and this may have been the deciding blow.

Linebacker Craig Stephens intercepted another attempted middle screen pass by West Virginia and returned it 15 yards for a touchdown, extending the Tigers' lead to 41-30 with 3:41 left in the game.

Again, it hasn't been the best night statistically for the Auburn defense, but that's two huge plays now in the fourth quarter for Ted Roof's guys.

And both were on middle screens.
