AUBURN, Ala. (AP) Auburn turned in another ugly offensive performance.
This time, the No. 15 Tigers couldn't pin it on their opponent.
In an inexcusable display of sloppiness, Auburn turned the ball over five times - four fumbles and an interception - but still managed to win only because it was going against an overmatched opponent. A 24-10 victory over FCS school Mercer on Saturday provided little reason to believe that coach Gus Malzahn's team is ready to challenge Alabama's dominance in the Southeastern Conference.
