AUBURN, AL (WBRC) - Auburn is enjoying an easier game against Liberty.

The Tigers hold a commanding 53-0 after the third quarter, finally having a chance to breath after a few tough games.

The Tigers' previous two games came against ranked Texas A&M and Georgia - splitting the games - and travel to top-ranked Alabama next weekend. But this weekend, Auburn faces non-conference Liberty is what should be a lopsided affair.

The Tigers will have an opportunity Saturday to work through any wrinkles before next weekend’s match-up in which they will be a heavy underdog in the Iron Bowl.

This story will be updated throughout the game.
