Nick Marshall passed for 207 yards, ran for 119 and accounted for four touchdowns to lead No. 5 Auburn to a 41-7 blowout of No. 15 LSU on Saturday night.

Auburn (5-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) dominated from the start on a week when No. 2 Oregon, No. 3 Alabama and No. 4 Oklahoma were upset. The 41 points equaled Auburn's highest total in the rivalry set with the same margin in the 1999 game.

LSU (4-2, 0-2), which turned to freshman quarterback Brandon Harris, has dropped its first two SEC games for the first time in coach Les Miles' decade-long tenure.

Harris completed 3 of 14 passes for 58 yards before getting replaced late in the third quarter by Anthony Jennings.

With Marshall playing again like the Heisman Trophy candidate many expected him to be, Auburn could rise to the No. 2 spot it held after last season.
