This NCAA football betting clash will start at 7:00 PM ET. The Bulldogs upset the Tigers 19-14 as 13-point underdogs when these two divisional rivals hooked up last season; however, the last time Mississippi State beat Auburn in Starkville was back in 2000, a losing streak that’s now reached three straight games that saw Auburn outscore Mississippi State 119-28.
The Tigers come into tonight’s match-up ranked the #9 team in the land, but they’re only the fourth highest ranked team within the SEC. After shutting out Louisiana-Monroe on the opening weekend of the season, Auburn played host to Southern Mississippi.
They came out of the blocks guns ablazed, taking a 24-0 lead deep into the 3rd quarter, but it wasn’t meant to be for NCAA betting fans that backed the Tigers that day. The Golden Eagles tacked on two touchdowns to make the score look respectable, but the 27-13 final score was enough for them to stay within the lofty 19.5-point NCAA football betting line.
Still, HC Tommy Tuberville had to be impressed with his squad’s defensive effort, holding Southern Miss to a total of 45 rushing yards on 28 carries. After getting upset by Louisiana Tech in their first game of the year, the Bulldogs had their home opener against Southeastern Louisiana.
Though the Lions took a 3-0 lead, the Bulldogs rolled off the next 34-points and won by a 34-10 final count. There was no football betting line on the game. College football betting followers who plan on backing Mississippi State in the future should like the fact that they averaged almost five yards per carry, but QB Wesley Carroll will need to throw for more than the 158 yards he got on Saturday to compete in the SEC.
