Last Saturday’s game between Mississippi State and Auburn was never really close. Through a scoreless quarter of play it looked like we could be in for a defensive struggle between two tough SEC teams, but the Bulldogs soon began to pull away and never looked back. Auburn was unable to get anything going on offense, and starting quarterback Kiehl Frazier completed only 13-of-22 passes for 125 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the 28-10 loss. It was almost as if Mississippi State knew the plays.

According to senior defensive back Corey Broomfield, the Bulldogs did know the plays.

“We do a great job of preparing and we knew what the play was before they ever ran them,” Broomfield told The Dispatch. “That’s not a joke. We knew what they were doing, where the ball was going and who was getting it before the ball was snapped.”

“It makes our job as coaches so much easier when (linebacker) Cam Lawrence is signaling over his head every time they were calling a pass,” Mississippi State linebackers coach Geoff Collins added.

Lawrence said he and his teammates were able to “get into (Frazier’s) head” and could tell he was confused when they called out the plays he had signaled. As Dr. Saturday pointed out, Auburn has closed practices this week to everyone except players, coaches and team staff. Tigers head coach Gene Chizik called it a problem that the team can rectify, but obviously it’s something that they are taking seriously and are at least mildly concerned over.
