One big thing to watch: This may be one of the biggest games in Dan Mullen’s tenure. Mullen beat the Tigers last season. A win today would give MSU a 1-0 start in SEC play and might quite some Bulldog fans who are upset.
Gameday surprise: As seen above, Dak Prescott will get the start. PA announcer announced Tyler Russell as the starter. LaDarius Perkins and Nickoe Whitley will start after not dressing last week.

Preview: MSU plays in Auburn in ‘big game’
Pregame song(s): Hey Girl by OAR This song was playing over the PA when I got to this one, so I said what the heck. Also, it’s a good song. I hope you enjoy.
