AUBURN, Ala.  Auburn's largest-ever margin of victory over a ranked team on Saturday night moved the Tigers up the national polls Sunday.

Auburn's 56-3 win over Arkansas propelled the Tigers to No. 15 in the AP poll annd No. 17 in the coaches poll that was released Sunday. 

Auburn entered Saturday's game ranked No. 23 by the coaches and No. 21 by the AP. The Tigers then promptly went out and beat then-No. 17 Arkansas by 53 points with a running game that ran up 543 yards, the most ever by one SEC team against another. Auburn has scored 21 touchdowns over the last three games while allowing just three touchdowns over the last 15 quarters.

Auburn's only losses have come against Top 10 teams Clemson and Texas A&M. The Tigers are now 5-2 overall and 3-1 in the Southeastern Conference. They'll take that to next Saturday's game at Ole Miss. Kickoff in Oxford is at 6:15 p.m. on the SEC Network.

Six SEC teams are ranked.
