Sara P's Fast 5: 5 Takeaways from Auburn's Demolition of Miss State

Auburn, Ala. (EETV) - The now No. 12 Tigers certainly put on an offensive show in their 49-10 win over Mississippi State. Auburn finally looks like the team they were expected to be, being dominant on both sides of the ball. Here are my 5 takeaways from the Tigers route of Mississippi State: 1) Stidham the Gun Slinger Earlier in the season, I said that quarterback Jarrett Stidham may not be the quarterback of right now but would be the quarterback of the future. He came to Auburn without playing a single snap in almost 2 years and having played 4 college games. But as the weeks have gone on, Stidham has become more confident in himself and confident in his teammates. And this week in the route of the Bulldogs, Stidham is finally playing like the quarterback we all expected and hoped he would be. He threw for 264 yards and 2 TDs, oh and he had a QBR of 96.2, which is extremely high.  The main thing that comes from these numbers is that Stidham has confidence in his arm to throw the ball down the field for the deep threat. He was able to hit four different receivers for passes longer than 40 yards and considering he looked afraid earlier this season to throw the ball, hitting multiple players for deep passes shows Stidham is finally confident in himself. Stidham is officially the quarterback we expected him to be: cool, calm, and collected with a cannon of an arm.
