The Mississippi Rebels (7-1), who rank No. 7 in the most recent AP Poll, will look to bounce back at home against the Auburn Tigers (6-1), who rank No. 4. Mississippi lost its first game of the season, 10-7 to the LSU Tigers last week. Despite winning the turnover battle four to one, Mississippi’s offense was unable to stop LSU’s rushing attack. LSU out-rushed Mississippi, 264 to 137 and won the time of possession, 36 minutes to 24 minutes. Quarterback Bo Wallace completed just 14-of-33 pass attempts for 176 yards and failed to deliver a big play when his team needed it. Look for Wallace to bounce back in front of his home crowd that will pay above average ticket prices for this SEC West showdown.
According to TiqIQ, the average ticket price for Mississippi vs Auburn football tickets is currently $249.09 on the secondary market while the get-in price for the game is $127. The game is currently 37% above the season average for Ole Miss football tickets at home this season.
Auburn is looking for its second straight SEC win after a close 42-35 home victory over the South Carolina Gamecocks. Auburn’s rushing attack produced 395 yards and five touchdowns in the victory, but had some trouble containing South Carolina’s quarterback, Dylan Thompson. Thompson has been erratic this season, but was locked in against Auburn. Thompson threw for 402 yards and five touchdowns in the loss as Auburn had difficulty stopping big plays.
On top of above average secondary market ticket prices, Mississippi will look to avenge last year’s 30-22 defeat. Auburn’s rushing attack compiled 282 yards and three touchdowns. Mississippi’s defense had no answer for quarterback Nick Marshall, who ran for 140 yards and two touchdowns. Wallace threw for 336 yards and two touchdowns, but two key interceptions cost his team the game. Expect a spirited effort from both sides in the Top 10 showdown.
