Game Day: MSU at Auburn

We’re not live on The Plains yet, but we will be in a few hours. Mississippi State opens SEC play in the unfriendly confines of Jordan-Hare Stadium. Be sure to follow me on at twitter.com/bradlocke for in-game updates and commentary. To reiterate, no updates will be on the blog until my postgame entry is filed.
