Mississippi State QB Nick Fitzgerald ran for close to 200 yards as the Bulldogs out matched Auburn 23-9. State’s physical offensive line play set the stage for the Bulldogs 349 yards in the running game. Meanwhile, Auburn’s offense continued to struggle, lacking rhythm during many parts of the game. Missed opportunities and untimely turnovers plagued Auburn and the Bulldogs won the time of possession by 26 minutes. Auburn falls to 4-2 on the season with a 2-2 record in the SEC. Next up for Auburn is a battle with Tennessee at 11:00 on Saturday while Mississippi State is on a bye.
