AUBURN, Ala. (AP) --

Action - Carnell Williams 092504

Jason Campbell passed for 194 yards in the
first half and Auburn (No. 10 ESPN/USAToday; No. 9 AP) beat The Citadel 33-3 Saturday, coasting in its sandwich game between a pair of high-stakes contests.

The Tigers (4-0) had no problem overcoming a few sloppy plays against the Division I-AA Bulldogs (0-2) in a workmanlike tuneup for next week's showdown at Tennessee (No. 8 ESPN/USAToday; No. 11 AP). They have a six-game winning streak for the first time since opening the 1997 season 6-0 and only missed their second shutout of the season on a field goal in the fourth quarter.

Auburn outgained The Citadel 593-169 in total yards, allowing just 71 yards passing and eight first downs. Most fans left by the fourth quarter.

The Tigers led 23-0 at the half despite a handful of mistakes, not totally unexpected considering they were coming off a 10-9 win over LSU and gearing up for the Volunteers. Then the backups took over.

Carnell Williams gained 95 yards on 22 carries, all in the first half, but lost a pair of fumbles in the Bulldogs' territory. He had a 1-yard touchdown run.

Backup Ronnie Brown, the league's No. 4 rusher, sat out the game with a sore hamstring. Redshirt freshman Carl Stewart gained 91 yards on 10 carries in his place, including a 1-yard TD.

Campbell was 11-of-14 and scored on a 1-yard sneak. Backup Brandon Cox came in late in the first half and went 11-of-17 for 165 yards, including a 10-yard TD pass to Jamoga Ramsey.

The Citadel's only points came on a 28-yard field goal with 6:01 left by Blake Vandiver, set up by Ern Hill's 79-yard kickoff return from his own end zone.

Auburn also got a safety off Eric Brock's blocked punt.

The Bulldogs' starting quarterback, Justin Hardin, finished 3-of-8 for 16 yards. Backup Duran Lawson was 3-of-6 for 55 yards, most on a 42-yarder to Gary Domanski.
