Auburn dominates 2nd half to down Arkansas

Auburn, AL (SportsNetwork.com) - Nick Marshall came off the bench to run for a tie-breaking touchdown in the third quarter, beginning a streak of 24 unanswered points that helped sixth-ranked Auburn pull away for a 45-21 victory over Arkansas at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Marshall, the starting quarterback on the Tigers' 2013 SEC champion and BCS runner-up team, sat out the entire first half as a suspension for a marijuana possession citation over the summer. In his place, Jeremy Johnson threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns in an impressive two quarters of action.

Jeremy Whitehead came through with a pivotal 33-yard interception return touchdown later in the third quarter, leading an Auburn defense that held the Razorbacks to no points and 61 total yards in a second half that saw an hour and 27-minute delay due to a severe thunderstorm.

Cameron Artis-Payne rushed for a career-best 177 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries for Auburn (1-0, 1-0 SEC), while D'haquille Williams racked up 154 yards and a score on nine receptions in the win.

Johnson completed 12-of-16 passes, with Marshall finishing 4-of-6 for 50 yards.

Brandon Allen went 18-of-31 for 175 yards and two touchdowns with the one key interception for Arkansas (0-1, 0-1). A.J. Derby ended with four catches for 40 yards and a score, while Alex Collins ran for 68 yards on 10 attempts in the loss.
