Nix, Bigsby propel Auburn in rout of LSU

Bo Nix threw three touchdown passes and ran for another as host Auburn breezed to a 48-11 victory over LSU on Saturday in a Southeastern Conference game.

Nix completed 18 of 24 for 300 yards and Tank Bigsby added two touchdown runs for Auburn (4-2, 4-2).

Freshman T.J. Finley made his second consecutive start at quarterback for LSU (2-3, 2-3) in place of injured Myles Brennan.

After completing 17 of 21 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns in a 52-24 victory against South Carolina last week, Finley threw two interceptions and lost a fumble to lead to three Auburn touchdowns. He completed 13 of 24 for 143 yards before being replaced by Max Johnson early in the third quarter.

Nix ran five yards for a touchdown on the first possession of the second half to give Auburn a 28-3 lead.

Big Kat Bryan intercepted Finley on the next play, setting up Bigsby’s 2-yard touchdown for a 35-3 lead. Bigsby added a 3-yard touchdown and Nix threw a 91-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Schwartz increased the lead to 48-3 at the end of the third quarter. It was a career-long for both players.

Johnson threw a 43-yard touchdown to Kayshon Boutte and ran for a two-point conversion to complete the scoring. Johnson completed 15 of 24 passes for 172 yards.

After a scoreless first quarter, LSU’s Cade York was wide right on a 54-yard field-goal attempt on the first play of the second.

Nehemiah Pritchett intercepted Finley and returned the ball to the LSU 4, setting up Nix’s 9-yard touchdown pass to Eli Stove for a 7-0 Auburn lead.

Derick Hall sacked Finley, who fumbled, and Christian Tutt picked up the football and ran 20 yards for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead.

Nix’s 9-yard touchdown pass to Ze’Vian Capers with 40 seconds left in the second quarter completed a 99-yard touchdown drive that gave Auburn a 21-0 lead.

York’s 51-yard field goal as time expired cut the lead to 21-3 at halftime.
