AUBURN, Ala. -- Don’t look now, but Auburn is three-fourths of the way to being unbeaten in the month of September.
It wasn’t the best start for the Tigers on Saturday night. They had to wait more than an hour just to begin the game because of lightning. And when the game did start, it was all West Virginia.
But Auburn’s defense came up with one big play after another in the fourth quarter, and the Tigers raced past the turnover-prone Mountaineers for a 41-30 victory at rain-soaked Jordan-Hare Stadium.
The Tigers (3-0) forced six turnovers by the Mountaineers, including five interceptions. Four of those turnovers came in the fourth quarter.
Senior quarterback Chris Todd threw four touchdown passes for Auburn, which has Ball State at home next Saturday before going on the road for the first time Oct. 3 against Tennessee.
