AUBURN, AL - Tre Mason and Onterio McCalebb combined
for 265 rushing yards and three touchdowns, and Auburn snapped a five-game
losing skid with a 42-7 homecoming victory over New Mexico State.
The Tigers (2-7) gained 475 total yards in the game, their highest
offensive output of the season, and held New Mexico State (1-8) to 305 yards,
including just 127 in the second half. Auburn had 311 total rushing yards, the
first time Auburn topped the 300-yard rushing mark since gaining 315 against
Georgia in 2010.
Mason carried 22 times for a career-high 152 yards and a
touchdown, and McCalebb had his eight touches for 113 yards while scoring two

and a touchdown along with one interception. Emory Blake led the
Auburn receivers with four catches for 78 yards.
McCalebb got his first score when he broke loose on a
38-yard run around the right end for Auburn's fourth score of the day to make
it 28-0 Tigers at the 2:58 mark of the third quarter. His run finished off a
96-yard scoring drive - Auburn's longest of the season by yardage - that lasted
just seven plays and 3:26.
The Auburn senior added his second touchdown of the day on a
7-yard run with 11:20 to play in the game, giving the Tigers a 35-7 lead.

Tigers gained 66 of 80 yards on the drive via the run game.
Midway through the third quarter, Auburn's first defensive

stiff-arming an Aggie defender at the 10-yard-line before diving into the end

New Mexico State found its way onto the scoreboard early in
the fourth quarter as Tiger Powell dove in from 2 yards out to make it a 28-7
game with 12:36 to play. The scoring play was set up by a 51-yard completion
