Auburn Vs. Mississippi State: You Get A Turnover! And You Get A Turnover! (And Auburn's Up 14-7!)

Auburn returns the ensuing kick into State territory. On its second play from scrimmage, Newton is intercepted in the endzone for a touchback. It's Auburn's second turnover in the first quarter. Tyler Russell takes over at QB for State, and after about five plays, at 3rd and 8, he's intercepted at midfield by Nick Fairley, who's been a noticeable threat even in this short amount of time.

Right after Auburn takes back over, star offensive lineman Lee Ziemba goes down with some sort of leg injury and is helped off the field. And right after that, there's a mixup with the handoff exchange and Newton has to fall on a fumble for a loss of 4 in the red zone.

This portion, however, is not: Just as I was typing the above, Newton fires a 12-yard touchdown pass to Darvin Adams. 14-7 Auburn, 8:37 remaining in the half.
