Auburn 10, LSU 9
-- No missed extra point was going to save LSU this time.
Jason Campbell connected with Courtney Taylor for a 16-yard touchdown pass with 1 minute 14 seconds to play and No. 14 Auburn got two chances to kick the winning extra point in a 10-9 victory over No. 5 LSU Saturday.
John Vaughn's first PAT attempt went wide left after a low snap, but Ronnie Prude was called for a personal foul, giving Auburn (3-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) another shot.
"[There] couldn't possibly be a bigger relief than that little yellow thing on the ground," Vaughn said.
Vaughn drilled his next try through the uprights with holder Sam Rives saving another bad snap, preventing a repeat of LSU's season opener when Oregon State's Alexis Serna missed his third extra point of the game in overtime for a 22-21 LSU victory.
Ryan Gaudet instead missed his point after kick following LSU's touchdown on a brilliant opening drive.
Auburn's final drive, in fact, provided just about the only offensive dramatics. Campbell led a 12-play, 59-yard march that milked most of the remaining 6:38 off the clock.
Ronnie Brown had a 20-yard run and Campbell and Taylor did the rest. Taylor also caught a 14-yard pass on fourth and 12 from the 28.
The score came on third and 12, with Campbell finding Taylor in the back of the end zone for his first career touchdown catch. Taylor knelt on his right knee in quiet celebration after the score.
LSU (2-1, 0-1), which had its 10-game winning streak snapped, moved into Auburn territory behind redshirt freshman quarterback JaMarcus Russell. But his final pass deflected off Early Doucet into the hands of Auburn's Junior Rosegreen with eight seconds left.
