Auburn at Ole Miss

Auburn is now 4-3 overall and 1-3 in the SEC after a tough 30-24 loss at home against Tennessee. The schedule doesn't get any easier for the struggling Tigers, with Ole Miss this week, then home against Texas A&M Nov. 3, and road games against Georgia Nov. 10 and Alabama Nov. 24.

Against the Vols, Jarrett Stidham didn't have his best performance, throwing two interceptions under pressure, and also a fumble in the third quarter. Tennessee scored 14 points off Stidham's turnovers. On the afternoon, Stidham completed 28-of-45 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns.

A usually stout Auburn defense allowed the Vols 396 total yards but 328 yards coming through the air with Jarrett Guarantano under center. Guarantano completed 21-of-32 passes with a pair of touchdowns. He was 11-of-14 for 188 yards and a touchdown on third downs.

Against the run, the Tigers did see some improvement, holding Tennessee to just 68 yards rushing and 1.9 yards per carry for the afternoon. Auburn recorded three sacks and four hurries.

After seven games, Auburn's offense averages 158.4 rushing yards per game, 217.7 passing yards per game, 376.1 total yards per game, and 28 points per game.

On defense, the Tigers allow 125.9 yards per game on the ground, 208 yards per game through the air, 333.9 total yards, and 16.6 points per game.

Ole Miss improved to 5-2 overall and 1-2 in SEC play after a late comeback to defeat Arkansas 37-33. Quarterback Jordan Ta'amu was the difference in the contest, passing for 387 yards and adding 141 yards on the ground. Ta'amu's single-game total yardage is the second most in Ole Miss history, trailing only a 540-yard effort by Archie Manning.
