1. Have to stop the run

Auburn loves to run the football, ranking 35th in the country and fourth in the Southeastern Conference with over 183 rushing yards per game. Sophomore running back Michael Dyer is second in the conference in carries, rushing the ball 159 times already this season (Almost 20 carries per game). Between Dyer, the speedy Onterio McCalleb, and electric freshman Tre Mason, the Tigers have plenty of options on the ground. Arkansas was successful running the ball on Ole Miss last week when they went into three and four wide sets that forced the Rebels to put extra defensive backs on the field and spreading the field. The Tigers certainly will attempt to do the same thing, and it could be a long day if Ole Miss hasn’t made an adjustment to fix this, particularly if freshman quarterback Kiehl Frazier is a big part of the Auburn offense.

“We’ve got to do a better job; we’ve got to finish,” Nutt said. “We have to play all four quarters.

1. Auburn: The Tigers lose a lot from their 2010 National Championship team, but return a great deal of talent at the running back position. Sophomore Michael Dyer rushed for over 1,000 yards as a freshman and will be paired with the electric Onterio McCalebb. McCalebb is one of the fastest players in the country and ran for almost 900 yards a year ago last year as a sophomore
