The offensive and defensive lines controlled the trenches, paving the way for 310 rushing yards and holding Mississippi State to 81 yards rushing.
STILL NEEDS SOME WORK
The Tigers survived six dropped passes, but how long can they get away with flubbing well-thrown passes? Junior Devin Aromashodu dropped two passes that appeared to be long completions or potential touchdowns. "You don't want to say anything negative. You want to be encouraging," QB Jason Campbell said. "But we need to start catching them. If we drop passes like that against somebody like LSU, it could hurt us really bad."
A 35-0 lead late in the third quarter allowed Auburn to bring in the reserves and give its starters extra rest in preparation for this week's home game against LSU. ... The coaches are excited about the potential of DE Stanley McClover, but they're not excited about his practice or game production, so sophomore Marquies Gunn started ahead of McClover. Unfortunately for Gunn, he suffered a sprained ankle in the third quarter and could be out for the LSU game. ... DE Bret Eddings missed some of the Mississippi State with a shoulder injury, but he eventually returned to action.
