Former Auburn football stars react to Tigers’ meltdown against MS State


It was a nightmare on the Plains in the second half of a 43-34 loss to Mississippi State for Auburn football fans.

Elsewhere, members of the Auburn family have felt the sting of the collapse, which featured a 28-3 AU lead at one point and 40 unanswered points for Bulldogs QB Will Rogers and co.

Former Auburn football players were not feeling the results of the game, many were watching live and many were flabbergasted by what they saw on their phones.

Former linebackers Deshaun Davis and Takeo Spikes were in the old category:

And Anthony Schwartz and Kerryon Johnson were part of the latter group:

The Tigers entered this one as favorites, but leave it just 6-4 in the current campaign, with three of those wins over Group-of-Five Schools / FCS Akron, Alabama State and Georgia State.

Who knows if they even get into their Week 12 game – a rematch against South Carolina, which shocked Auburn in 2020 – as a betting favorite. We may have seen Las Vegas give Auburn football the benefit of the doubt one last time in 2021, depending on who they end up in front of their bowl game.

While that could lead to some nice wins if AU can now play spoiler (especially in the Iron Bowl), it wasn’t what fans were hoping for at this point in the season after spectacular wins over LSU, Arkansas. and Ole Miss in October. .

Yet this is where many expected them to be in 2021.
