Auburn vs. Mississippi State Game Preview
Why Auburn will win
It’s not like the Tigers are limping, but it’s not exactly the end of the regular season losing two of the last three games.
So what’s the problem for the former No. 1 team?
He’s not doing a good enough job on the pitch and the three aren’t there, but the defense has been fantastic. Vanderbilt is the only team in the last six games to reach 40% from the field against Auburn D, and there are no concerns about Mississippi State bombings.

Bulldogs do a whole lot of things indoors.
No, they don’t take threes and make them when they try, but they still have one of the best shooting offenses in the SEC because of what they do on the inside.

what’s going to happen
Yes, all three. Mississippi State’s inability to do anything outside will be a problem.
Beating Missouri two games in a row and beating Vanderbilt at home is good, but to beat Auburn you have to go beyond that. Florida beat the Tigers with ten threes, and Tennessee was just good enough to get six.
Mississippi State has gone 7 of 46 threes in the past four games.
