Recap: Auburn vs. San Jose St

Auburn, AL (SportsNetwork.com) - Cameron Artis-Payne ran for three touchdowns as No. 5 Auburn routed San Jose State, 59-13, on Saturday night.

After San Jose State's Tyler Ervin tip-toed the left sideline en route to a 75-yard touchdown reception that tied the game at 7-7 midway through the first quarter, Auburn ripped off 28 unanswered points and never looked back.

Artis-Payne carried the ball 16 times for 112 yards, while Nick Marshall was 10-of-19 for 101 yards with a touchdown and added 103 yards and a score on the ground for the Tigers (2-0), who defeated Arkansas last Saturday.

"We are excited to be 2-0 with a tin at home," said Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn. "Our crowd was unbelievable again."

Auburn ran for 358 yards in the triumph.

Blake Jurich completed 16-of-27 passes for 218 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions for San Jose State (1-1), which beat North Dakota in its opener.

Artis-Payne capped off an 8-play, 60-yard drive with a 2-yard TD plunge and after Jermaine Whitehead intercepted Blake Jurich on a 3rd-and-20 from the Auburn 45, he ran in from five yards out on a 4th-and-1 to give the Tigers a 21-7 lead early in the second.

San Jose State went three-and-out on its next touch and Quan Bray returned a punt 55 yards for a score. The Spartans then went three-and-out again and Auburn needed just four plays to find the end zone once more.
