COLUMBIA - It's a battle of Tigers at Faurot Field as the No. 15 Auburn Tigers (2-1, 0-0 Southeastern Conference) make their first ever trip to Columbia to take on the Missouri Tigers (1-2, 0-1 SEC). This is the final game of an unprecedented four-game homestand to open the season for Mizzou.

Mizzou is coming off a 35-3 loss last week to the Purdue Boilermakers in which the Tigers were held to a season-low 203 total yards. Auburn won its Homecoming game 24-10 over Mercer of the Football Championship Subdivision last week at Jordan-Hare Stadium. 

The all-time series is knotted at one game a piece, with Auburn having won the last matchup 59-42 in the 2013 SEC Championship game. This is the first regular season game between the two teams as Mizzou completes its first full rotation of crossover games with the SEC West this season.
