Auburn at Mississippi State

Auburn will face a tough test when it heads to Mississippi State for a conference game in prime time.

Auburn offense vs. Mississippi State defense
• Dual threat QB Cameron Newton (6-foot-6, 250 pounds) manufactured 376 yards of total offense and five total touchdowns last week in his debut, including 171 yards rushing (a school record for a quarterback) on just 15 carries. Yes, it was against Arkansas State, but there is reason to believe Newton could be an emerging star.
