AUBURN, Ala. -- Jeremy Johnsons career at Auburn has been tumultuous. So to be able to start the final home game of his college career, and to do well in it, was a storybook ending. One of the most memorable moments for Johnson, though, wasnt during the game.Hes led the team out of the tunnel each game this season, and it was especially emotional Saturday night.After all that Ive been through, I still love being around this team, Johnson said. Thats the most important thing for me, my teammates. The other stuff doesnt even matter.Johnson accounted for three touchdowns, and No. 18 Auburn made the most of its final tuneup before the Iron Bowl against No. 1 Alabama with a 55-0 victory over FCS opponent Alabama A&M on Saturday night.Starting in place of the injured Sean White, Johnson was 14 of 19 for 147 yards and a touchdown and rushed for two more. It was Johnsons first start of the season and the first game he received substantial playing time in since the opener against Clemson, and he led the charge for a wire-to-wire win on Senior Day.Johnson was the starting quarterback in 2015, but poor performances caused him to lose his job to White, so to see him cap his career on a high note was good for Auburn coach Gus Malzahn to see.I think everyones happy for him, I know everybody in that locker rooms happy for him, Malzahn said. It was a good night.Kerryon Johnson ran for 108 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries before being lifted for freshman Kam Martin at halftime. Kerryon still wasnt 100 percent healthy from his lingering ankle issue that has hampered him since he suffered it against Mississippi State last month, but Malzahn said hes getting close.He wasnt the only Tiger on the mend Saturday.Running back Kamryn Pettway, who entered the week atop the SEC leaderboard in rushing, missed his second consecutive game with a left leg injury. Among the other Auburn players to sit out the final home game of the season were running back Stanton Truitt, H-back Chandler Cox and cornerback Carlton Davis.Auburn (8-3, No. 15 CFP) outgained Alabama A&M (4-7) 598-130, and had its first shutout since the first game of the 2008 season.I think that was one of (the defenses) goals coming in, to get a shutout, Malzahn said. Its so hard to get a shutout, and our defense has played excellent all year...any time you get a shutout, its something special.Malzahn let Johnson orchestrate the offense while he was in during the first half, and he filled in well for White. The Auburn defense let out its frustration from last weeks loss on the Bulldogs, who didnt eclipse 100 total yards until late in the third quarter.We got beat by a better team, I can tell you that for sure, Alabama A&M coach James Spady said.John Franklin III ran for 81 yards and a touchdown on four carries in mop-up duty for Johnson, and Martin finished as the leading rusher with 176 yards and a pair of touchdowns -- all in the second half -- thanks to a few long runs.DeAngelo Ballard was 15 of 39 for 103 yards for the Bulldogs.POLL IMPLICATIONSNo. 18 Auburn likely wont see a huge shift in its place in the polls, but the Tigers could move up a few spots based on the results of some other games.MARTINS MILESTONEWith his 176 rushing yards, Kam Martin becomes the 10th player under Gus Malzahn to rush for 100-plus yards in a game. Kamryn Pettway and Kerryon Johnson joined that club earlier this year.THE TAKEAWAYAuburn gets to rest some of its players that will be key in next weeks regular-season finale while picking up its eighth win of the season.Alabama A&M ends the year on a sour note, but the Bulldogs showed some fight against an SEC powerhouse.UP NEXTAuburn travels to Tuscaloosa next week for the Iron Bowl against No. 1 Alabama.Alabama A&M has wrapped up the season.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Enes Kanter Jersey.

Keenan joined the National Lacrosse League team before the 2010 season. He has led the Rush to three playoff appearances in four years, including an appearance in the 2012 NLL final. The Rush had not advanced to the playoffs before Keenans arrival, missing out in all four seasons since the team was founded in 2005. "We have full confidence in the direction Derek Keenan is taking this team, this past season was another strong campaign that provided a good look into the exciting potential of the club," Rush owner Bruce Urban said in a statement. "Keenan is the finest coach in pro lacrossee at pre game preparation for his players.dddddddddddd If this team executes the game plan night in and night out, get ready for some winning seasons." The Rush finished 9-7 this season and were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. There were positives, however, as the team scored a franchise-record 203 goals. "There may have been other opportunities out there for me but there is really no other place I want to be," Keenan said. "I did not even bother to test other waters. We have a very committed owner in Bruce Urban and a hard working front office staff. "Most importantly I think we have a really talented young team, a group of athletes whom I really believe in."
