Auburn found itself in a tight game with Western Kentucky at halftime on Saturday.

It was 17-17 going to the break, but the Tigers have blown things open in the 2nd half.

They scored 17 unanswered points after intermission to take control of the game and then the defense chipped in to extend the lead even further.

D.J. James made the big play, picking off Hilltoppers quarterback Austin Reed and taking it back 27 yards for a score to make it 41-17

The Tigers are looking for their 2nd consecutive win under interim coach Cadillac Williams, which would get them to 5-6 on the season heading into their finale at Alabama.
