No.1 LSU routs Auburn in historic fashion

Rueben Randle and No. 1 LSU crafted another lopsided win.

This one was historic.

Randle caught two long touchdown passes from Jordan Jefferson and Jarrett Lee in the last five minutes of the first half, and LSU beat No. 19 Auburn 45-10 on Saturday, scoring more points than either team ever has in the 110-year history of the rivalry.

Up next for the top-ranked Tigers? A game against current No. 2 Alabama in two weeks that could go a long way in determining the national title picture if the Crimson Tide win later against Tennessee.

Fans at Tiger Stadium could barely wait and were chanting "We want 'Bama! We want 'Bama!" as time ticked off LSU's eighth straight win by double digits to start the season.

Lee, the starting quarterback, passed for 165 yards and Kenny Hilliard scored two touchdowns on the ground for LSU (8-0, 5-0 SEC), which has won its first eight games of the season for the fifth time in school history and first time since 1973.

Clint Moseley got his first career start at quarterback for Auburn (5-3, 3-2) and threw for 145 yards on 12-of-20 passing with an interception that was returned by Ron Brooks for a touchdown.
