We've got a fun one on the Plains tonight as Auburn and Ole Miss are tied at 17 at the half.
Auburn rushed out to an early 14-0 lead thanks to two touchdown passes from Clint Moseley, but Ole Miss came right back to score 17 of the next 20 points.
Ole Miss' running game has been great so far. The Rebels are running over and through Auburn's defense, putting up 173 yards on the ground in the first half.
Both offenses have had spurts here and there, but turnovers have hurt momentum. Both teams have turned it over twice so far.
We expected a close one in Auburn tonight, but this one has the makings of a good ol' fashioned shootout. Auburn might be better equipped with Moseley under center (he finished the half with 120 yards and two touchdowns), but Ole Miss seems determined to punish Auburn's defense with its running game.
