STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State and Auburn will look for early bragging rights in the first game of a home-and-home matchup that also could serve as a resume builder for both squads.

The Nittany Lions are playing for their seventh straight win while Auburn will look for its third straight in a rare visit to a Big Ten stadium.

The Tigers have a pair of backs who have carved up their first two opponents and could be the key to quieting a raucous crowd. Tank Bigsby and Jarquez Hunter have combined for 43 carries, 531 yards and four touchdowns
