A strong finish for the Tigers in Week 2

There you have it, the Auburn Tigers continue their winning streak with 17 straight wins. Though the last 4 minutes of the game against the Mississippi State Bulldogs were a bit nerve-racking, Auburn finished strong.

Quarterback Barrett Trotter completed 16 for 23 with 146 yards and 2 touchdowns. Roughly a minute and a half into the game Michael Dyer scored the first rushing touchdown for the Tigers. A minute later Mississippi quarterback Chris Relf threw an interception to Demetruce Mcneal who ran 43 yards for another Auburn touchdown. After what appeared to be a heavy offensive game, Auburns defense stepped it up immensely from last week and proved so more in the 4th quarter. For the last 8 minutes of the game, Mississippi was only down one touchdown with a score of 34-41.

At 2nd and goal Auburns defense managed to stop the Bulldogs from tying the game and putting it into overtime. Though Auburn lost some of their “star” players to the NFL draft this year they still look promising. After week one Auburn fans were a little worried about the match-up with Mississippi State, but with Trotter appearing to only be improving and their defense getting stronger Auburn might not have so bad of a season in the end. As of now the Tigers look more promising than one would have thought. With head coach Gene Chizik behind them there is not telling what could happen. Bring on the Clemson Tigers in Week 3.
