Defending Champs Dogs vs Mississippi State

The Auburn Tigers escaped with a win in Week 1 but had better not get behind early Saturday when they get a visit from Mississippi State in Week 2 action.

The No. 16 ranked Bulldogs have lost 11 straight SEC openers but are favored by 7 points against the defending national champs, who fell out of the Top 25 despite beating Utah State. Bulldog RBs Vick Ballard and Chris Relf could have a field day as the Tigers gave up more than 400 yards in offense against the Aggies in their win.
