Auburn football will be back home against Mississippi State on Saturday, September 30, 2017, fresh off opening its SEC schedule with a huge blowout win against struggling Missouri. Find game time, TV channel and how to watch online information below.
The No. 13 Tigers (3-1, 1-0 SEC) will hope to send No. 24 Mississippi State (3-1, 1-1 SEC) reeling after the Bulldogs opened their two-game road trip with a 31-3 loss at Georgia. Auburn, on the other hand, slammed Missouri by a score of 51-14 in its first-ever trip to the Show Me State.
While Mississippi State has won three of the last five meetings against Auburn, the Tigers pulled off the biggest win in recent series history last season with a 38-14 victory in Starkville. If Auburn can execute that type of win again, it will be in good shape heading into the meat of its SEC slate.

Auburn-Mississippi State football preview
- Remember him?: Auburn running back Kamryn Pettway rushed a career-high 39 times in the Tigers’ 24-point win against Mississippi State last season. Pettway is expected to play in Week 5 after Auburn held him out of the entire Week 4 win vs. Missouri.
- Hello, top 10: After throwing just 4 incompletions last week against Missouri, Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham is now ninth nationally in completion percentage at 70.6. That’s the highest mark in the SEC, narrowly ahead of Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson.
- Top 5: Auburn is fourth nationally in total yards allowed per game and is only one of two SEC teams (Georgia at ninth) to be inside the top 10. The Tigers are even statistically at 3.63 yards per play with Clemson, a team they played in Week 2.
- Gimme five: Auburn running back Kerryon Johnson rushed for 5 touchdowns last Saturday against Missouri, tying a season FBS high. His mark was just one shy of the school record, which was set by Carnell “Cadillac” Williams in 2003.
- Hat tip to SEC Network’s Cole Cubelic for this note: Auburn is 15-1 at home as a ranked team under Gus Malzahn, the only loss coming against unranked Texas A&M in 2014.
