The NCAA Tournament second round game between No. 4 Kansas and No. 5 Auburn appeared - on paper, anyway - to be one of the most-exciting matchups of the round.

Unfortunately, just one of these teams has shown up so far.

Auburn is taking it right to Kansas midway through the first half of tonight's second round contest in the Midwest Region.

It's Auburn 28, Kansas 14 with just under 12 minutes to play.

Bruce Pearl's team looks extremely good. Bill Self's team, meanwhile, looks like it's ready to go home.

Bryce Brown has been leading the way for Auburn.

Former Auburn star Charles Barkley is a very happy man.

There's plenty of game left, though. Kansas is going to need to turn it on in a major way to get back in this one.

Auburn and Kansas are playing on TBS.
