GAME NOTES
Game captains: Reese Dismukes, Gabe Wright

Auburn's 99-yard scoring drive in the third quarter was its longest of the season; the previous long was 98 yards on seven plays vs. Arkansas. It was only the fourth 99-yard drive in school history and the first since 2004 vs. Ole Miss.

Auburn recorded three interceptions in a game for the second time this season (also San José State); Auburn has 10 total picks for the season.

Mississippi State's first-quarter 34-yard TD pass was the first score by an opponent off an Auburn turnover this season; the play also snapped Auburn's streak of 19 opponent third-down attempts without a conversion.

This was Auburn's first scoreless first quarter of the season.

Auburn's four turnovers are the most committed by the Tigers in a game under head coach Gus Malzahn.
