SPOKANE — A halftime summit was held at Albi Stadium on Saturday afternoon, Mike Leach overseeing a group of inconsistent and underachieving football players whom he said suffered — as the coach has grown fond of saying — from "performance anxiety."

The second half of the annual Crimson and Gray spring game was full length instead of using a 30-minute running clock as planned.

"We didn't get our work done the first half," Leach said, "so we were going to play a full second half. Which we did."

The lethargy ended and the Gray team emerged with a 22-21 victory before a crowd of 8,340 after third-string quarterback Jesse Brown threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Gabe Marks before completing a two-point conversion pass to Theron West for the win.

Expected starter Connor Halliday completed 38 of 58 passes for 406 yards, three scores and was intercepted twice. Austin Apodaca was 27 of 45 for 279 yards, ran for one score and threw for another.

Notes

• Auburn fans said goodbye to the two oak trees at Toomer's Corner with one more toilet paper celebration following the spring game. An A-day-record crowd of 83,401 watched the Orange team defeat the Blue squad 35-14 at Jordan-Hare Stadium in coach Gus Malzahn's first spring game.

• Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron passed for 223 yards and a touchdown but was also intercepted twice in the Crimson Tide's spring game before 78,315. McCarron's White team won 17-14 over the Crimson, led by the first-team defense.
