Trotter rallies Auburn against No. 10 SCarolina

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Barrett Trotter's 9-yard touchdown pass to Phillip Lutzenkirchen with 1:38 left lifted Auburn to a 16-13 victory over No. 10 South Carolina on Saturday.

The Tigers (4-1, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) had struggled to move the ball against South Carolina's defense. Trotter had thrown two interceptions and was sacked four times by the Gamecocks (4-1, 2-1). But down 13-9, Barrett led Auburn on a 12-play, 57-yard drive that ended with a pass to wide open Lutzenkirchen in front of the goal line.

The junior fumbled the ball into the end zone, then recovered it just before sliding out of bounds to put Auburn ahead.

South Carolina advanced to Auburn's 29 on its final possession before time expired.

Michael Dyer ran for 141 yards on a career-high 41 carries and had a 1-yard TD for Auburn, which has won its past 11 SEC games.
