Challenges for Auburn
The Tigers have to step it up a notch. They looked good in a win over Washington but a home loss to LSU coupled with the most recent close win over Southern Miss has folks concerned. While the Tiger defense has been solid, the offense hasn’t performed as well as expected.
Challenges for Mississippi State
The Bulldogs got off to a hot, 3-0, start but have since lost two games in a row. The Tigers have averaged less than seven points a contest over the last two games. First-year head coach Joe Moorhead desperately needs his offense to score more points.
Saturday’s game kicks off at 6:30 pm CT and can be seen on ESPN2.
