No. 3 Mississippi State set to host No. 2 Auburn
STARKVILLE, MS - It wasn't long ago that the mention of the numbers three and two brought sarcastic jokes and eye rolls from fans of Auburn and Mississippi State.
Now, they bring a sense of pride.
No. 3 Mississippi State (5-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) hosts No. 2 Auburn (5-0, 2-0) on Saturday in the first game between top 5 opponents in the history of Davis Wade Stadium. The winner will stay on top of the powerful SEC Western Division.
It was just six seasons ago that Auburn beat Mississippi State 3-2 in Starkville in an ugly game full of punts and defense.
Now Auburn and Mississippi State have two of the most prolific offenses in the SEC.
