Last weekend, Mississippi State was able to right its ship a bit with a 51-7 rout of the Alcorn State Braves. The win was an expected on, and everything on both sides of the ball seemed to go off without a hitch. But has MSU solved its issues on offense? Who is going to get the majority of snaps at QB and RB? How good is Auburn? This game features a ton of questions for both teams involved, so this game will answer a good bit for both teams. No matter who starts at QB, no matter our recent bad juju at Auburn, here's to hoping State comes out strong and gains an SEC opening win.

Hail State
