Louisiana-Monroe at Auburn

UL-Monroe is 1-2 on the season, but had last weekend off. The Warhawks face an Auburn team that's 2-2 overall and 1-1 in conference play.

Saturday, the Tigers battled LSU to the last second to win 18-13. Place-kicker Daniel Carlson made all six field goal attempts. Carlson's six field goals tied a school record set by Al Del Greco in 1982 against Kentucky and came from 51, 29, 29, 31, 37 and 29 yards.

Carlson also had all seven kickoffs go for touchbacks. Punter Kevin Phillips only had three punts which averaged 40 yards. He placed one inside the 20-yard line.

The Tigers are averaging 18.5 yards on kick returns so far in 2016. Against LSU, Rudy Ford had a 25-yard return and Kerryon Johnson had a 21-yard return.

Auburn's offense had 388 total yards on the night and quarterback Sean White completed 19 of 26 passes for 234 yards.

The Tigers got inside the red zone six times but had to settle on five field goals. As a unit, the offense averages 24.5 ppg, 234.8 rushing ypg, 204 passing ypg and 438.8 total ypg.

Defensively, Auburn held LSU's talented running back Leonard Fournette to 101 yards on 16 carries. On the night, the Tigers limited LSU to just 338 yards of total offense and 220 yards rushing.
