A'BURN, Ala. (AP) - Who needs

K Faulk was held to 88 yards rushing
Saturday and had his mark of six

thce§venth-ranked Tigers beat Auburn
Auburn planned 411 along to take
Faulk out of the game - and just about
succeeded. But the Tigers found ways
to win without ,Faulk, especially with
the help of four Auburn turnovers.
"When you spot them 14 and lose by
12, that's as close as you're going to
set,' Auburn coach Terry Bowden said.
W Herb Tyler threw a 6-yard touchdown
pass to Kyle Kipps with 5:27 left to seal
the victory for Louisiana State (2-0
overall, 1-0 Southeastern Conference).
With the Tigers leading 25-19, Chris
Cummings intercepted a pass by
Aubin quarterback Ben Leard on
Auburn's 46. Faulk then gained 26
yards on five carries to set up the
"We didn't always take advantage of
rnovers," LSU coach Gerry DiNardo
said-"But we did when we had to."
The Tigers led 19-17 at halftime and
Harris sandwiched his 64 between rounds of
72 and 74. His 3-under par total of 210 led the
Wolverines and was 11i th best among the tour-
nament's 66 competitors.
"The delight of the trip" for Carras' team
was true freshman Andy Mathews. Playing in
his first college tournament, Mathews fired a
team-low score of 68 in the opening round,
despite bogeying the final two holes. ie fol-
lowed that with scores of 71 and 74, giving
him an even-par total of 213 and tying him for
"He has everything you look for in a player:
the desire to compete, the ability, and great
composition for a freshman," Carras said.
Carras was especially pleased with
Mathews' performance because he knows how
overwhelming it can be for a freshman to com-
pete at this level.
"It's very difficult (for a freshman to play in
his first tournament)," Carras said. "This is the
first time at the NCAA level where they play
for more than just themselves. They're play-
ing for the entire team."
Mathews was one of just two freshman who
made the trip to Minnesota last weekend.
Kyle Kilcherman did not perform as well by
carding a score of 227 (76-75-76), leaving him
in 57th position.
One of the 'veterans' for this inexperienced
squad who traveled to Minnesota was sopho-
more Scott Hayes, yho saw some varsity
action last year.
H ayes showed flashes of brilliance during
the first round by shooting a 69, despite play-
ing the 17th and 18th holes in three-over par.
He finished the weekend at 219 (69-74-76),
good for a 36th-place finish.
The Wolverines' fifth player last weekend
was junior Mike Affeldt. Although he is a
junior, Afl1dt does not have much varsity
exper incne. I1 posted three rounds of 76 in
the Northern Intercollegiate, giving him a 54-
hole total of 228 and leaving him in 59th
