Auburn tailback Kerryon Johnson continued his touchdown tear against Mississippi.

Johnson ran for three touchdowns and 159 yards in the first half Saturday for the 12th-ranked Tigers. That gave him 11 touchdowns in just a 10-quarter stretch.

Johnson scored five times against Missouri and three against Mississippi State. 

He came into the game with nine touchdowns, trailing Oregon's Royce Freeman by one for the national lead.

Johnson added touchdowns of 17, 48 and 5 yards. He kept the opening drive alive by converting a third down and a fourth down with runs.

He didn't play the final series of the half. Auburn led 35-3 at halftime.
