AUBURN, AL - Nick Marshall was sharp in the first half, Auburn's running game carried the load in the second, and Gus Malzahn got to breathe a big sigh of relief Saturday night.
Auburn beat Arkansas State 38-9 in Jordan-Hare Stadium, an especially sweet win for Malzahn, who was the Red Wolves' head coach last season.
Malzahn improved to 2-0 as Auburn's head coach and snapped the nation's second-longest winning streak of nine game in the process.
Auburn's defense continued to play no-touchdown defense. The Tigers held
Washington State without a touchdown the final 2 1/2 quarters in the
opener, and was at it again in the second game.
Marshall threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to freshman Marcus Davis and a perfect 68-yard long strike to Sammie Coates for another. By halftime, Marshall had thrown and rushed for more yards than he had in the Tigers' 31-24 win over Washington State in the opener.
Auburn rushed for 400 yards.
Marshall was 7-of-12 passing for 139 yards and another 59 yards rushing at the half. He finished hitting 10-of-17 passes for 147 yards.
Tre Mason and Corey Grant carried the load in the second half.
Grant scored on a 17-yard run in the first quarter. Mason scored on an 11-yard run in the third quarter. Cameron Artis-Payne added a 12-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
Cody Parkey added a field goal in the fourth quarter.
