The Ole Miss football team's defense is forcing turnovers and scoring points. Safety Cody Prewitt said the unit is relentless and stingy. It's hard to argue with him after the defense helped No. 3 Ole Miss beat No. 14 Texas A&M 35-20 to improve to 6-0 for the first time since 1962.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Even after a week, Blake Sims wasn't quite ready to let go of the frustration from the shocking loss at Mississippi. The rest of the Alabama quarterback's teammates played as if they were still hung up on the loss as well for much of a 14-13 victory at Arkansas on Saturday night.
STARKVILLE -- After the victory lap, after the hug and kiss from his wife, after staring up at the scoreboard to let the final score sink in, Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen had two people he needed to see in the aftermath of his team's 38-23 victory against No. 2 Auburn on Saturday night.
STARKVILLE -- The doors to the Mississippi State football team's locker room opened, and coach Dan Mullen led his team onto the field confidently, as the Bulldogs ran straight for their Saturday afternoon showdown with No. 2 Auburn.
Auburn-Mississippi State By the Numbers

5 for Inside for Mississippi State-Auburn
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- An Alabama team known for stingy defense and physical offense is getting more attention for turnovers and penalties this week. The seventh-ranked Crimson Tide (4-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) has been uncharacteristically mistake-prone, especially the past two games.
STARKVILLE -- Call it the one that got away. A year before his team defeated then-No. 8 LSU and then-No. 6 Texas A&M in back-to-back games, Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen had the Bulldogs in position for a huge win at Auburn early in the 2013 season. At the time, few knew how good Auburn really was.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State guard Fred Thomas wants to be a leader on the basketball court. Part of that desire comes from the fact that it will help the Bulldogs, 24-41 in the past two seasons, win games more games. The other part? Thomas wants to provide MSU's newcomers with something he didn't have when he entered the program three years ago.
OXFORD -- The Ole Miss football team's surprise victory against Alabama last weekend will live in school lore for a long time. But the victory -- for all of its immediate satisfaction -- didn't clinch a Southeastern Conference Western Division. There's a lot of football still to be played this season.
SCOOBA -- Sophomore wide receiver Brandon Acker knew he was joining a championship program when he signed to play football and baseball at East Mississippi Community College. Still, he never expected this much success.
STARKVILLE -- Chinwe Okorie has gone from sitting and watching to being able to do everything the rest of her teammates on the Mississippi State women's basketball can do.
STARKVILLE -- Beniquez Brown wasn't fooled. Early in the first quarter of Mississippi State 48-31 victory against Texas A&M, Brown, waited patiently as quarterback Kenny Hill approached the line of scrimmage for a critical fourth-and-1 inside MSU's 20-yard line.
AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn's defense has improved dramatically since the last time the Tigers faced Dak Prescott. Then again, so has Prescott. That was long before the 6-foot-2, 230-pound star for No. 3 Mississippi State emerged as the Southeastern Conference's hottest quarterback and the biggest challenge the second-ranked Tigers have faced this season.

STARKVILLE -- Expectations are nothing new at Mississippi State this year.

So far, so good on that front. Vic Schaefer hopes his team will handle the expectations that it will face as it prepares for the 2014-15 season.
