Auburn struggled against FCS opponent Mercer last Saturday but managed to avoid being upset to win 24-10. Auburn committed five turnovers, the most since 2012 against Arkansas.

Quarterback Jarrett Stidham completed 32-of-37 passes for 364 yards and an interception. Kamryn Pettway rushed for 128 yards and three touchdowns, which tied a career high.

After three contests, Auburn is averaging 178.3 rushing yards per game, 209 passing yards per game, 387.3 total offense per game, and 23.7 points per game.

Missouri is 1-2 overall after falling 35-3 at home to Purdue. Missouri managed just 203 total yards against the Boilermakers and has scored just 16 points since its 72-43 season-opening win over Missouri State.
