Despite Auburn’s dominance of the show, the state of Mississippi has made the show engaging over the past ten seasons. Since 2012, the series is tied 5-5. Auburn has won three of the last five games.

Some aspects that led to the stretching of the neck to the neck include Auburn’s disastrous 2012 season, which turned 180 degrees the following season when Auburn ended his season playing the Bowl Championship Series National Championship. The state of Mississippi also had a great game with quarterback Daki Prescott in mid-2010.

Here’s a look back at the last ten Auburn-Mississippi games ahead of Saturday’s game.
