Auburn, Ala. (EETV) – No. 13 Auburn has finally found it offensive identity after facing No. 24 Mississippi State.
Auburn' offense was operating on all cylinders in a lights-out offensive performance.
Quarterback Jarrett Stidham threw for 264 yards, completing 13 of 16 passes.
“When we hit shots, we score points,” head coach Gus Malzahn said.
Kerryon Johnson also had his second multi-touchdown game of his career. He found his way into the end zone three times on the night.
The defense also got in on the scoring action. Cornerback Javaris Davis had a pick six, scoring Auburn’s first defensive points on the season.
Davis gave all the defense credit saying, "It all starts up front. We've got a great defensive line to pressure. I saw green grass and just tried to score".
Through the first five games, Auburn’s defense has allowed 55 points. The Tigers are the only FBS team to allow 14 or fewer points in each game this season.
The Tigers defeated the Bulldogs 49-10.
Auburn will face Ole Miss for more SEC play next Saturday at 11 a.m. in Auburn.
