Number 18 Auburn pulled off two late scores tonight for a 23-13 win over Kansas State.

Auburn's offense struggled all night and Kansas State seemed poised for its 18th straight season-opening win.

But Auburn finally wore down the Wildcats just enough.

Brandon Cox threw a touchdown pass to Gabe McKenzie with 2:01 remaining and Antonio Coleman returned a fumble for a score moments later.

Cox found McKenzie alone in the left corner of the end zone from the 3 to cap a 57-yard, seven-play drive.

The Wildcats got the ball back but Quentin Groves sacked Josh Freeman, forcing a fumble that Coleman returned 34 yards for a touchdown.
