Blog: Auburn handles New Mexico State 42-7
What we know:
•Jonathan Wallace wasn’t prefect, but looked good for a freshman in his first start. Next week’s game versus Georgia will be his big test.
•Auburn finally got its power running game going.
•It might have been New Mexico State, but a win is a win and Auburn badly needed a win. It will be interesting to see if they can bring a little momentum from the win into the Georgia game.
