AUBURN, Ala. -- The Auburn Tigers are again 4-2 and showing signs of a turnaround going into the Arkansas game.The No. 21 Tigers are trying to avoid a repeat of last seasons deflating outcome Saturday against the No. 17 Razorbacks. They lost that game 54-46 in four overtimes to start a 1-4 finishing swoon in Southeastern Conference games.Auburn (4-2, 1-1) rides a three-game winning streak into the rematch, including SEC West victories over LSU and Mississippi State.The defense has been consistently solid and the once-struggling offense has come to life in beating Louisiana-Monroe and the Bulldogs by a combined 96-21. The Tigers entered the Top 25 before last weeks open date, but recent history proves its way too early to proclaim this a successful season.The good thing about this team is our leadership is very strong, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. The leadership will definitely keep everybody grounded. Theyre on a mission. They really helped us through the tough times. There were no chinks in our armor, and it really starts with our leaders. Theyve got a good pulse for our team. Our younger guys really listen to them.And the offense, especially, is full of younger guys. Underclassmen have accounted for 88 percent of the Tigers offensive yards during the first half of the season, led by a trio of sophomores -- quarterback Sean White and tailbacks Kamryn Pettway and Kerryon Johnson.Theyve helped lead a turnaround since a 1-2 start that included competitive losses to No. 4 Clemson and No. 6 Texas A&M.Malzahn has since handed over play calling duties to offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, with positive results so far. He said the Tigers have improved quite a bit since the Texas A&M loss.The defense has gone three straight games without allowing a rushing touchdown for the first time since 2008. White has completed 77 percent of his passes over the past three games, stabilizing the offense and his own status as the No. 1 quarterback. Malzahn played three quarterbacks early in the season opener against Clemson.But now come two bigger tests -- the Razorbacks ( 5-2, 1-2) and at No. 23 Mississippi. Auburn could emerge as an SEC West contender or a team scrambling to secure a winning record like last year.White sustained a knee injury against Arkansas but led a last-minute drive toward a tying field goal in the fourth quarter to force overtime. Not pulling that game out still makes me mad, Malzahn said.Its one of several close games Malzahn and Auburn players could point to during the offseason as a key to reversing the Tigers fortunes.That was kind of one of our messages during the summer is finish games like that, guard Alex Kozan said. Find a way to put ourselves over the edge and win those games.NOTE: The open date allowed injured players like center Xavier Dampeer and Johnson to heal from ankle injuries. Dampeer has missed the past two games. Johnson was limited to three carries against Mississippi State but is practicing this week.---AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap Authentic Jordan 8 . -- Linebacker Myles Jack ran for four touchdowns, defensive end Cassius Marsh caught a scoring pass, and No. Jordan 8 Wholesale . Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. http://www.cheapairjordan8.com/ . LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Wholesale Jordan 8 .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court. Cheap Jordan 8 Shoes . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season.Veteran free agent forward Vincent Lecavalier has agreed to a deal with the Philadelphia Flyers that, according to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, will be a five-year, $22.5 million contract. The deal will also include a full no-movement clause. Flyers captain Claude Giroux told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com that he is pleased with the soon-to-be newest member of his squad. "Very excited, hes going to bring a lot to our team," said Giroux to LeBrun. The former Tampa Bay Lightning captain became a free agent this off-season after his former team used a compliance buyout to eliminate his $7.727 million salary cap hit through the 2019-20 season. The 33-year-old scored 10 goals aand added 22 assists in 39 games last season for the Lightning.dddddddddddd. He spent the first 15-years of his NHL career with the Lightning, the team that drafted him first overall in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, contributing 383 goals and 874 points in 1,037 regular season games. Lecavalier also helped lead the Lightning to their first-ever Stanley Cup victory in 2004. The Ile Bizard native signed an 11-year deal with the Lightning in 2008, in a deal that at the time was expected to see the team captain finish his career in Tampa Bay. "Im proud and honoured to be committing myself to the Tampa Bay Lightning for the rest of my NHL career," Lecavalier said after signing the 11-year contract in 2008. ' ' '
