No. 11 Auburn Rolls Past Florida Atlantic, 45-10
By Alabama News Network


Jeremy Johnson threw two long touchdown passes to Sammie Coates after replacing injured starter Nick Marshall and No. 11 Auburn overwhelmed Florida Atlantic 45-10 on Saturday night.
   
Johnson, a freshman, threw a 36-yard scoring pass to Coates on his first snap after replacing Marshall, who was taken to the locker room with a shoulder injury early in the second quarter. Marshall returned to the Auburn sideline, but not the game, as Johnson threw a 67-yard touchdown pass to Coates later in the quarter.
   
Auburn (7-1) avoided a letdown one week after a 45-41 win over then-No. 7 Texas A&M. The Tigers had 628 total yards, including 440 in a lopsided first half.
   
Florida Atlantic (2-6) trailed 38-0 before quarterback Jaquez Johnson scored on a 29-yard run with less than 1 minute remaining in the first half.
