Mississippi State, Auburn meet in key Western Division game

They also will try to keep him on the sidelines by punishing the Bulldog's front seven for all four of the quarters.

The easiest comparison for Auburn fans is that Nick Fitzgerald is similar to Tim Tebow, in regards to the type of player he is, not in skill.

Statistically, the Seminoles kept pace with the Wolfpack, and actually outgained them in total yards.

Mississippi St: QB Nick Fitzgerald is a double threat who ranks 10th in the SEC in rushing yards but isn't among the league's top 10 passers. The Bulldogs defense was confused in the loss, surrendering 404 total yards which included 203 rushing yards. Todd Grantham's defense is going to target running backs Kerryon Johnson and Kam Pettway, who are supposed play together for the first time since the Sugar Bowl. "You're talking 18 to 22 year-old guys that have all sorts of things going on and then people are patting them on the back telling them how great they are".

Auburn football is the No. 1 topic in the War Eagle Wakeup every day - but we cover news, notes and analysis from across the Tigers' sports world.

On the ground, Nick Gibson rushed for 52 yards in five attempts while Fitzgerald added 47 yards in 10 carries. The Georgia Bulldogs. After forcing a quick three and out, the Georgia Bulldogs' first play from scrimmage was a 59-yard touchdown pass from freshman quarterback Jake Fromm to wide receiver Terry Godwin.

The sophomore is actually the Tigers' leading rusher despite receiving carries in only two of four games. The two potential division contenders meet Saturday with one of them strengthening its candidacy and the other left trying to salvage those hopes. He threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more against the Tigers, but he couldn't duplicate that performance against a swarming Georgia defense that is starting to look a bit like the one Smart oversaw in his previous tenure as Alabama's coordinator. After what Georgia did, this isn't an overwhelming undertaking.

Where does that leave Mississippi State? Either way, I still don't think anybody on the offense is in for a very big day. Can he do that again this week against the second best defense the Tigers have faced since the Clemson loss? Sure, Auburn will get some scores, but the Bulldogs defense can hold them into the mid 20's. If the Bulldogs can convert on third down, they'll be able to put up some points up against the Tigers.

Skip the nine-point line in this game, as the Auburn defense is really that good. Just take the under 50.5 and cheer for both defenses to do what they are fully capable of in this SEC Conference match-up. But the Bulldogs are 3-2 straight up and 4-1 against the spread over the last five meetings.

The Tigers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight conference games.

After routing the LSU Tigers a week prior at home, MSU (3-1, 1-1 SEC) fell on the opposite end of that spectrum against No. 11 Georgia with a 31-3 stomping. Here are some recaps of some of the biggest games from last week.
