COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Welcome back Jeremy Johnson.

The Auburn quarterback stepped in for injured Sean White in a big way, hitting his first nine passes, getting a nice assist from the Tigers' defense throughout and together they combined to beat Texas A&M 26-10 Saturday night in Kyle Field.

It was Auburn's most complete game of the season.

Johnson, who started the first three games before being replaced by White, threw a touchdown pass to give Auburn a 7-3 lead, then watched Jovon Robinson score from the 1 for a 14-3 advantage with 13:40 left in the second quarter. Texas A&M would cut it to 20-10 late in the third quarter, but that was in the midst of a Daniel Carlson field goal parade. His third, early in the fourth quarter, put Auburn on top 23-10. Another one made it 26-10 midway through the fourth.

Auburn's defense turned away two A&M scoring threats with interceptions near the goal line in the tone-setting first half. The Tigers also stopped the Aggies on a fourth-and-1 at the Auburn 23. The Aggies scored their first touchdown with 2:23 left in the third quarter. Auburn's defense turned away the Aggies again late in the game.

But Auburn was up 20-3 before then, thanks to Johnson's passing and Robinson's running in the first half, and field goals of 35 and 30 yards from Daniel Carlson in the third quarter. A&M scored on a 2-yard TD pass from Jake Hubenak to Speedy Noil late in the quarter to cut it to 20-10, but Carlson hit a 21-yard field early in the fourth to stretch the lead to 23-10.

White had started the previous five games, but the knee injury that threatened to sideline him last week against Ole Miss finally got him before the A&M game. White didn't practice the week leading up the game because of his injury.

Johnson was 9-of-9 passing for 57 yards and a touchdown early on. Robinson had seven carries for 77 yards and a touchdown during that same span. Robinson broke the 100-yard barrier with six minutes left in the second quarter.

Taylor Bertolet put A&M up early with a 50-yard field goal with 11:25 left in first quarter. But that was before Johnson got going.
