Obliterate Ole Miss! (Auburn vs. Mississippi Open Thread)
Another college football Saturday is at hand!
(Photo by Acid Reign.)
War Eagle, everybody! The Auburn football season continues this morning with an early visit from the Ole Miss Rebels. Two teams trending in opposite directions meet today. Ole Miss hasn’t scored a touchdown in its last 6 quarters. Meanwhile, Auburn is averaging 50 points a game against SEC foes. Still, expecting a beatdown isn’t wise. Ole Miss has to be stinging from the 66–3 beatdown it took last week in Tuscaloosa, and I fully expect the Rebs to come into this game swinging. This game kicks off at 11:00 AM Central Daylight Time and will be televised on the SEC Network.
Ole Miss hasn’t run the ball well this year, but it can sling the ball with a bevy of talented receivers. Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson is second only to Auburn’s Jarrett Stidham in terms of passing efficiency this year. One expects at some point the dam will break, and Ole Miss will score at will on somebody. Ole Miss defensive coordinator Wesley McGriff coached defensive backs at Auburn, last season, and that may give Ole Miss an advantage. McGriff knows Auburn’s players well. What may be most important, though, he knows Auburn defensive coordinator Kevin Steele’s tendencies. I wonder if the Ole Miss offensive staff has plumbed this knowledge?
The official forecasts I’ve seen from Alabamawx.com and the Weather Channel are forecasting a high of 83 degrees and partly sunny with only a slight chance of showers during the game. I’m not so sure. It’s deeply overcast in the Tragic City as I type this, with high humidity. It’s possible that the rains from Hurricane Nate may start in Auburn sooner than expected. I’d bring rain gear if I was attending. Also, I’d make plans to head home immediately after the game is over. Things will deteriorate over the state this evening. Everyone, please stay safe!
As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will at the keyboard for my usual play by play this morning. I expect there won’t be much pregame news with the early kickoff. War Eagle, and let’s smash those Rebel Bears!

…..We missed a chance to pile on, a bit.
Haha I thought you were serious neobets and was trying to figure out the logic
I’m kidding about the score, Acid. It goes to show how crazy the Malzahn complaining is that it actually seems believable that there would be griped about a 35-3 halftime score.
….It is GOOOOOOD! with 13:53 left in the 3rd, Auburn leads, 38-3~
….In comes Carlson. This field goal attempt will be from 49.
…..3rd and long. Twins each side. Changing the play. Stidham will fire to Hastings, dropped.

…..Auburn will receive, to start the second half.
…..I cannot complain about the score. We need to break the heart of the Rebs, and let the backups play.
21-7. Now that’s a reasonable score. Kirby Smart gets it. Gus Malzahn, doesn’t.
….Checking the O’Henry’s Coffee Scoreboard, Georgia leads Vandy 21-7 at the half, in early SEC action.
….Ole Miss can move the ball, but they are not consistent in sustaining drives. Two steps foward, then a missed pass on 3rd down.
21 points? Sure, no problem. But 35? It’s too many points! S-L-O-W I-T D-O-W-N.
35-3 at halftime? Typical Gus Malzahn–run up the score so other teams will resent Auburn even more. This guy just doesn’t get it.
AU 391 total yards in first half. 185 pass/296 rush
Ole Miss 204 total. 186 pass/18 rush

…..Three minutes till kickoff! Let’s hear a big WAR EAGLE!
…..A few notes…. Tre’ WIlliams and Kamryn Pettway are dressed for this one, but will not start. Tigers are resting critical pieces, on this day.
Yep – really cruddy cloudy here on the Plains. Pre-game festivities winding down but AU looking energized during warm-ups. Let’s hope the early kickoff curse is behind us.
From coach to mascot , offense and defense, past and future, we are matching up with a team today who doesn’t have a clue about who they are or where they are going. I’m never seen a team/school more confused about their identity.
You mean the “Land Sharks” with one of the worst defenses in college football? Yeah, I’d say if it comes down to having to rely on running games because of weather that bodes well for us, but I doubt we’ll need the extra advantage. If Ole Sis is forced to throw it 40-50 times, rain or not, the game will be well in hand.
…..And we are live! It continues to look cruddy-cloudy, in the Tragic City. My guess is that Auburn would fair better in a mud-bowl than run-challenged Ole Miss would, but I’d rather not have the risks of wet turnovers!
About Acid Reign:.....Still making noise after all these years! Lifetime slacker, dreamer, and miscreant with a knack for calculation. I was born in the United State of Texas, but have spent the majority of my years here amongst the shaded hills of the Tragic City, enjoying glorious smog-enhanced sunsets. In a troubled county, I live in a little slice of paradise between the ridges of Red and Shades Mountains. I've been an obsessive Auburn football follower since the Punt-Bama-Punt days, and have seen a lot of great football on the Plains. This lazy shirker finally learned the value of hard work and persistence from the fine folks in Auburn, and enjoys his return visits immensely! Hobbies include guitar-playing (or really just making loud and weird noise on any sort of instrument or object), cooking, computers, tennis, and old-school pen and paper RPGs. I love getting together with a good drink, great family, and friends..... (Acid Reign is Track ’Em Tigers’ Senior Editor). View Profile →
