No. 15 Auburn holds off Vols, 14-12

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Backup quarterback Kodi Burns did just enough to help No. 15 Auburn run out the clock and preserve a 14-12 win over struggling Tennessee on Saturday.

Burns' 10-yard pass to Montez Billings on third-and-5 produced a first down and enabled the Tigers (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) to kneel on three consecutive plays with the Volunteers having used up their final two timeouts.

The Vols (1-3, 0-2) fell to 1-3 for the first time since 1994, the second full season for embattled coach Phillip Fulmer.
