AUBURN, Alabama (Ticker) -- Carnell Williams ran for 113 yards and two touchdowns as Auburn recorded its highest point total since 1995 in a 73-7 rout of overmatched Louisiana-Monroe.

Auburn (6-3) dropped out of the rankings for the second time this year after last week's 31-7 loss at Louisiana State. The Tigers bounced back on Homecoming by feasting on the Indians in their highest-scoring effort since a 76-10 triumph over Chattanooga eight years ago.

Williams opened the scoring with a 72-yard TD run just over four minutes into the game. Jason Campbell threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Jeris McIntyre and Williams added a one-yard TD plunge for a 21-0 lead after one quarter.

Williams notched his fourth 100-yard effort of the season and ninth of his career. He has 12 touchdowns this year and 28 in his career.

The Tigers, who tuned up for next week's Southeastern Conference showdown against Mississippi, scored 24 more points in the second quarter for a 45-0 cushion. Defensive back Kevin Hobbs ran back an interception 20 yards for a score and wide receiver Justin Fetsko scored on the first of his two blocked punts in the game.

Brandon Jacobs and Tre Smith each added a pair of rushing touchdowns in the second half.

Louisiana-Monroe (1-8) got its lone touchdown on Floyd Smith's 18-yard pass to Mack Vincent. The Indians surrendered an average of over 60 points in three lopsided defeats to Southeastern Conference opponents this year.

The game was the 300th at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn improved to 235-58-7 at their campus field.
