Auburn is looking for its third straight win of the 2016 season. Mississippi State is looking for an almost unprecedented third straight win over the Tigers in this SEC West rivalry.
The Tigers and the Bulldogs will face off in Davis Wade Stadium on Saturday in what will be the first road game of the season for Gus Malzahn’s Auburn (3-2, 1-1 SEC) team. Dan Mullen’s MSU (2-2, 1-1 SEC) is coming off a bye week and will be playing its first game in Starkville since Week 2.
A win in Davis Wade Stadium on Saturday would go a long way for the trajectory of both programs as they dive deeper into the SEC schedule. If Auburn, a slight road favorite, can knock off Mississippi State, it would show it’s shaken off a rocky 1-2 start to the season.
