Auburn is not out of the woods against Utah State just yet. But the Tigers are out of the hole, thanks to super sophomore Michael Dyer.
Dyer capped an 11-play, 65-yard third quarter drive for Auburn by taking in an 11-yard direct snap for a touchdown, and after the extra point, the Tigers and Aggies are knotted at 21.
Dyer has 10 carries for 51 yards, and has been one of the few consistent bright spots for an Auburn team that has had problems on both offense and defense against the WAC's feisty Aggies in its season opener.
After having just three first downs in the first half, Auburn has already recorded four first downs in the third quarter.
