Mississippi State, which has won six-straight games in the month of September, is coming off a win against the Braves where it amassed 556 yards, tied for the ninth most in school history (at Tulane, 9-4-82). In a game where 70 players saw action, it was the fourth-best production with Dan Mullen at the helm.
A total of 13 players caught a pass, with Fred Ross pacing the air assault with three receptions for 46 yards.
On the ground, freshman Ashton Shumpert made his collegiate debut with 98-yards rushing. As a team, the Bulldogs rushed for 277 yards on 54 carries.
Mississippi State, which returns home next week for a 6:30 p.m. CT showdown against Troy, was just as impressive defensively, holding ASU to just 163 total yards. For the second week in a row, linebacker Deontae Skinner led MSU with five tackles. He also had an interception that set up the Bulldogs first touchdown.
Auburn (2-0) enters the contest following its 38-9 win against Arkansas State. In the season opener, the Tigers held off Washington State, 31-24.
Under the direction of first-year coach Gus Malzahn, Auburn hasn’t allowed a touchdown in the last six quarters.
