The Auburn Tigers (5-0), who ranked No. 2 in the most recent AP Poll, will look to continue their dominant play in SEC action when they head to Mississippi to tangle with the upstart Mississippi State Bulldogs (5-0), who ranked No. 3. Auburn is coming off a dominant 41-7 home victory over the LSU Tigers, who have struggled in SEC play. As a team, Auburn rushed for 298 yards and three touchdowns. Quarterback Nick Marshall led the way with 116 yards and two touchdowns. Auburn’s defense capitalized on LSU’s unsettled quarterback situation by limiting LSU to only 142 passing yards. Unfortunately for Auburn, they’ll face Mississippi State’s dual-threat quarterback, who vaulted into the Heisman Trophy discussion with a strong performance against Texas A&M. Quarterback Dak Prescott’s strong play has resulted in higher prices on the secondary ticket market.

Prescott was responsible for five total touchdowns as the Bulldogs routed the No. 6 ranked Texas A&M Aggies, 48-31 last week.

On top of above average secondary market ticket prices, Mississippi State will look to avenge last year’s 24-20 defeat to Auburn. Prescott ran for a game-high 133 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. Expect an emotional game as these top teams vie for first place in the SEC West.
