(WAFF) -

After three games, the Auburn defense appears to be a concern.  

Dating back to last season, the last 9 FBS opponents Auburn's faced have gained at least 400 yards on the Auburn defense.

Last week, LSU racked up 485 yards, with Leonard Fournette accounting for 228 of those yards.

Dak Prescott and Mississippi State come to town Saturday. Prescott had 374 total yards in the Bulldogs win last year against the Tigers.

"This really shows what type of Leadership you have on the defense, the leadership you have on the team,” said Auburn cornerback Blake Countess. “This game is as important as any game this season, just because of what happened last week.”
 
Auburn and Mississippi State kickoff Saturday at 6:30 CT.
