AUBURN, Ala. (AP) Auburn players could be forgiven for looking ahead to next week's visit from No. 1 Alabama.
Forgiveness came easy after the Tigers made a strong recovery from their sluggish start against Louisiana-Monroe.
Darius Slayton's 50-yard scoring catch late in the first half gave No. 6 Auburn the lead and the Tigers pulled away for a 42-14 win over ULM on Saturday to set up next week's showdown with the Crimson Tide.
