Gameday: No. 8 Auburn at Mississippi State




FINAL: Mississippi State 23, No. 8 Auburn 9. 




- I covered the rushing numbers in my quick gamer, and will do so in more detail in the full version, but here's something that's on my mind: Running 77 percent of the time is not a sustainable model week over week, but it sure was against Auburn with this exact plan. All the credit goes to their scheme. 


- This game had three penalties total. What a time to be alive. 


- Mississippi State held the ball for 41 minutes and 53 seconds and Auburn converted just three of its 14 third-downs. When you barely have the ball and you're not very good at keeping it, you're gonna lose. Period. 


- A sneaky important stat: Nick Fitzgerald was 5-for-6 on first down.
