AUBURN, Ala. Julyan Stone Jersey . -- Sean White threw for 244 yards and three touchdowns, and Kamryn Pettway and Kerryon Johnson each eclipsed 100 yards rushing as Auburn dominated Arkansas State, 51-14 on Saturday night for the Tigers first win of the season.The three-quarterback system Auburn coach Gus Malzahn instituted last week in the loss to Clemson was scrapped, and White was given full command of the offense from the get-go. He led the Tigers for 10 drives, and Auburn scored on eight of them, all but two of which were touchdowns.He dissected the Red Wolves defense, finding Tony Stevens for a pair of scores and sophomore Will Hastings for another.Whites most jaw-dropping throw of the night, however, went to freshman Kyle Davis. Davis hauled in a 42-yard deep ball with one hand, striking up comparisons to New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr.s famous catch, and eliciting a sustained collection of dropped jaws in the stands.Auburn racked up 706 total yards, the most the Tigers have accumulated since the 2014 Iron Bowl, when Nick Marshall nearly took down Alabama in a high-octane shootout.Whatever bag of tricks Malzahn had for that game, he mustve opened back up against the Red Wolves, his only other head coaching stop in college football.Johnson fumbled on Auburns first possession, but he got the scoring started on a weaving, cross-field, 47-yard touchdown that included a hurdle and a dive on the next possession. Then midway through the second quarter, Lou Groza finalist Daniel Carlson received an over-the-head pass from holder Tyler Stovall and waltzed into the end zone.THE TAKEAWAYAuburn rights the ship and quiets steadily rising concerns about the Tigers offensive woes and, perhaps more importantly, Malzahns job security.Arkansas States troubles in the secondary -- and the defense as a whole -- continue to plague the Red Wolves, who have now been outscored 82-24 in their first two games this season.POLL IMPLICATIONSWith the way SEC teams have been struggling against inferior opponents, a wire-to-wire victory for Auburn might be enough to bump them into the Top 25.UP NEXTAuburn hosts No. 20 Texas A&M on Saturday.Arkansas State travels to Utah State on Friday. Marcus Paige Jersey . Michell Burger, a woman who lives on an estate next to Pistorius gated community, said she and her husband were awoken by the screams in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, when Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp by shooting four times through a door in his bathroom. Frank Kaminsky Jersey . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. PITTSBURGH -- The stakes are nowhere near the same: hockey immortality versus two points in the standings in the second week of a long season.Still, the San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins expect the atmosphere to be a little more heated than the usual NHL October product when they meet Thursday night barely four months removed from Pittsburghs six-game victory in the Stanley Cup Final.It was obviously tough to go on that long a journey and lose the way we did, San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said. I dont think there was any doubt at the end of the day they deserved to win, but at the same time I think for us its a chance to go in, and were a different team this year, and make a statement that we are a different team this year.The Penguins, in essence, are not. They brought back nearly the entire group that captured the franchises fourth championship and led to a raucous downtown parade in mid-June. A week removed from a giddy opening night in which the 2016 Cup banner was raised at newly renamed PPG Paints Arena, the Penguins are trying to focus on the next chapter instead of the last one.That shouldnt be a problem.The Penguins are coming off sloppy performances in an overtime loss to Colorado on Monday and a 4-0 setback in Montreal on Tuesday. Captain Sidney Crosby -- the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as the MVP of the 2016 playoffs -- remains out indefinitely with a concussion and goaltender Matt Murray is still on the mend from a broken hand.Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan is focused on his team getting its act together. The fact the Sharks (3-1) happen to be next on the schedule is coincidental.Youve got to bring your A-game each and every night to give yourself a chance, Sullivan said. But certainly, comingg off the type of game we had (against Montreal) and our opponent moving forward, there should be plenty of motivation for us to make sure we respond the right way. Dwight Howard Jersey. The Penguins did relentlessly during the 2016 postseason, seizing control of the best-of-seven final by taking the first two games at home and eventually closing the Sharks out on the road in Game 6. The giddy celebration in the visiting locker room in San Jose will be long remembered. It also wont mean a thing when the puck drops on Thursday.Theyre probably going to have a chip on their shoulder and we obviously didnt play too great (in Montreal), so were obviously going to have a chip on ours, forward Bryan Rust said. I think its going to be a physical, playoff-like atmosphere.San Jose appears just as sharp as it was last spring when it reached the Cup Final for the first time ever. If the Sharks need a reminder of how close they came, they only need look up at Pittsburghs banner-strewn rafters. Theres no going back, however. Another long trek to the postseason awaits. Thursday night is just one more step in the process.Its important that we keep building our game and trying to get better, captain Joe Pavelski said. We understand its a long ways from getting back to that position and this is a good team that well be playing.Game notes Murray skated with a small group of teammates on Wednesday and has been cleared to practice but there remains no timetable for his return to the lineup. ... Crosby skated early Wednesday and remains out.---AP Sports Writer Vinay Cherwoo in New York contributed to this report.
