Last week's predictions were 6-2, and overall they are 34-10. This week, Auburn plays Mississippi State at Jordan-Hare Stadium at 5 pm CT on ESPN. The Tigers lead the all-time series 62-26-2. Auburn has won 12 of the last 16 meetings against the Bulldogs, including a 38-14 win in Starkville last season.

Mississippi State at Auburn

Saturday on the road at Missouri, the Tigers cruised to an easy 51-14 victory. It was Auburn’s biggest road blowout of an SEC opponent since a 55-23 win at Tennessee in 2013.

Running back Kerryon Johnson's impressive performance saw him score a career-best five touchdowns, four of them coming in the first half. ­­Quarterback Jarrett Stidham had a solid night, completing 13 of 17 for 218 yards and a touchdown.

Auburn's offense averages 199.5 rushing yards per game, 211.5 passing yards per game, 411 total yards per game, and 30.5 points per game.

Auburn's stout defense forced two early Missouri turnovers that quickly gave the visiting Tigers early momentum. Kevin Steele's unit allows opponents 97.5 rushing yards per game, 138.8 passing yards per game, 236.3 total yards per game, and 11.3 points per game.

Mississippi State suffered a 31-3 rout on the road at Georgia Saturday. Mississippi State's offense mustered just 280 yards of offense against Georgia, while quarterback Nick Fitzgerald passed for just 83 yards and threw two interceptions. He managed to gain only 47 rushing yards on 10 carries.

For the season, Mississippi State's offense averages 267.5 rushing yards per game, 172.3 passing yards per game, and 36.5 points per game. And on defense, the Bulldogs allow 14.8 points per game.
