AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn left tackle Lee Ziemba is set to break the school record for starts.

Ziemba will log his 50th start in a row for the second-ranked Tigers Friday at No. 9 Alabama. That will break Will Herring's career starts mark.

Auburn coach Gene Chizik calls that streak at such a physical position "an amazing feat." Chizik says Ziemba has progressed "miles and miles" during his senior season.

The 6-foot-8, 319-pounder anchors an offensive line that has given up 17 sacks in 11 games.
