AUBURN, Alabama (Ticker) -- Jason Campbell set and Philip Yost matched impressive school records as Auburn took a breather from Southeastern Conference play to rout Division I-AA Western Kentucky, 48-3.

Campbell completed a school-record 92.3 percent of his passes and Yost booted a record-tying 57-yard field goal for the Tigers (2-2), who outgained the Hilltoppers (3-1), 567-163.

Campbell connected on 12-of-13 passes for 173 yards and touchdown as he became the ninth Auburn player to reach the 3,000-yard career passing mark. Fellow quarterback Josh Sullivan also was accurate, completing 10-of-13 passes for 109 yards.

Yost's field goal on the final play of the first half gave Auburn a 38-0 lead and matched a kick by Neil O'Donoghue against Tennesse on September 25, 1976. It tied for the seventh-longest in SEC history and is the longest in the league since 1985.

Tre Smith, who scored on a pair of one-yard touchdown runs, gave Auburn a 7-0 lead 4:54 into the contest. Campbell added a 36-yard TD pass to Silas Daniels and Carnell Williams tacked on a 29-yard scoring run later in the period.

In the second quarter, Ronnie Brown had a five-yard run and Smith his second one-yard plunge.

Brandon Jacobs rushed for 103 yards and a score, Brown 80 yards and Williams 71 for the Tigers, who outgained the Hilltoppers on the ground, 285-47.

Justin Haddix completed 10-of-17 passes for 116 yards and an interception for Western Kentucky, which had just seven first downs to Auburn's 29.
