Note to Reader: This is a pre-season prediction made in late July August. If you found this information the week of the game, please note that my actual game preview will be posted on Wednesday with the postgame on Sunday.

With Auburn traveling to Starkville to play Mississippi State in a Thursday night ESPN contest, the team will have part of its mind (as well as part of its game plan) established on the SEC schedule. However, with the team chomping to hit someone other than itself, there will be enough focus on the game at hand to get new QB Cameron Newton’s feet wet in a live game situation and find out whether he can pass or not. It won’t be close and it won’t be pretty.
Score Prediction: Auburn: 38, Arkansas State: 7.
Record Prediction: 1-0
