Saturday, Nov. 13
Mississippi State Bulldogs at No. 16 Auburn Tigers (-5.5, 50)
Burke: We’ll have to wait and see if Mike Leach finds a walk-on kicker to his liking for Saturday’s game against Auburn, but it was the special teams unit that cost Mississippi State a win over the weekend. Three missed field goals loomed large in the three-point loss to Arkansas, a game where the Bulldogs held big edges in yards and yards per play.
Bad Bo Nix showed up for Auburn against Texas A&M, as the Tigers were held to three points and also saw their hopes of winning the SEC pretty much vanish. The Aggies now hold tiebreaker wins over both Alabama and Auburn, so a path to winning the West requires a ton of help.
The Air Raid is a tough scheme to defend for a Tigers squad that could have a bit of a hangover effect and may also just be looking ahead to the Iron Bowl at this point in time. Bowl eligibility is secured and what matters the most now is that rivalry game. Auburn’s pass defense is nothing to write home about, coming into this week ranked 105th in the nation in completion percentage against and with only five interceptions.
