STARKVILLE, Miss. -- The last time Auburn played a football game at Mississippi State was 2014 when the Tigers were ranked No. 2 in the nation and the Bulldogs were No. 3. Both teams were undefeated and it was arguably the biggest home game in Mississippi States history.The stakes arent as high this Saturday.Auburn (3-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) and Mississippi State (2-2, 1-1) will both be unranked when they meet at Davis-Wade Stadium. The two teams have had some encouraging moments this season, but both are still trying to prove they can be a real factor in the SECs Western Division race.It is going to be a good test, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said.Auburn has won two games in a row, including last weeks 58-7 victory over Louisiana-Monroe. The Tigers have also been competitive in losses to nationally-ranked Clemson and Texas A&M.Mississippi State -- which has won three of its last four against Auburn, including the 2014 game -- hasnt played since Sept. 25 when it beat UMass 47-35 .Sophomore quarterback Nick Fitzgerald leads the Bulldogs with 603 yards passing and 329 yards rushing this season. He had 305 yards passing and 110 yards rushing in the UMass win, making him just the third quarterback in the country this season to have a 300/100 game.Fitzgerald said hes been impressed with Auburns defense, which is giving up just 16.4 points per game this season despite playing three nationally-ranked opponents.Theyre definitely a really solid SEC defense, Fitzgerald said. Really strong up the middle with the defensive line and linebackers. Were going to have to work hard. When were running were going to have to move some bodies.-----A few more things to watch when Mississippi State hosts Auburn on Saturday:HELPING FITZGERALD: Most of Mississippi States offense has run through Fitzgerald, who leads the team in passing and running. The sophomore could use some help against the Tigers. The most likely candidates are receivers Fred Ross and Donald Gray, along with running backs Brandon Holloway and Ashton Shumpert.LEVELING UP: Tigers quarterback Sean White, who made his starting debut against Mississippi State last season, has thrown all five of his touchdown passes against two Sun Belt Conference defenses. In fact, Auburn produced two of its top four performances in total yards in those games against Arkansas State and Louisiana-Monroe while totaling three touchdowns in the other three games. White is averaging just 166 passing yards against the three Power 5 conference defenses he has faced.IMPORTANT OCTOBER: Mississippi State has been to a bowl game for six straight seasons, which is a school record. The month of October will likely go a long way toward determining whether the Bulldogs can push the streak to seven. Mississippi States next four games are winnable ones against Auburn, BYU, Kentucky and Samford. After that, the Bulldogs face four teams that are currently in the national rankings -- Alabama, Texas A&M, Arkansas and Mississippi.STRENGTH ON STRENGTH: Auburn leads the SEC with 269 yards rushing per game. The Tigers will go up against a Mississippi State defense thats solid against the run, giving up just 110.8 yards per game.RED ZONE TROUBLES: Auburn managed to beat LSU with six field goals, but that also illustrates the Tigers troubles in the red zone. Theyve scored touchdowns on just 11 of 27 trips inside the opponents 20-yard line, a problem that plagued them against the Bulldogs last season.-----AP Sports Writer John Zenor in Montgomery, Alabama, contributed to this story.-----Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP .

There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. NEW YORK -- When teams dangle veteran stars for prospects this offseason,?New York Yankees?general manager Brian Cashman will do his best to say no.New York missed the playoffs for the third time in four years and at 84-78 finished four games out of an AL wild card.The Yankees struggled to a 9-17 start, then improved in the final two months of the season after bringing up catcher Gary Sanchez, right fielder Aaron Judge and first baseman Tyler Austin.First-base prospect Greg Bird, a late 2015 sensation, returns following shoulder surgery, and more youth could bubble up from the minors during the season.Right now, a veteran pitcher such as White Sox ace Chris Sale probably is not a good fit for the rebuilding Baby Bombers.We have an exciting, young nucleus thats coming, Some of its arrived, some of its still coming, Cashman said Wednesday.Youd have to be one piece away, and I would not recommend that type of decision-making as we approach the 2017 season. I think that would be a dangerous approach.Cashman spoke for nearly an hour, assessing 2016 -- our offense was bad; we had a bad offensive team -- and detailing his approach for 2017. He anticipates competitions among young players for first base and right field during spring training.There will be some hesitancy to forego giving the kids a chance to take it, and certainly that can create some problems if they dont, he said. But that doesnt preclude me from being open-minded to any and all opportunities that present themselves.Seven years removed from its last World Series title, the Yankees traded Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller, Carlos Beltran and Ivan Nova for prospects during the summer and released Alex Rodriguez.They cut payroll to roughly $224 million and saved $2.38 million in luxury tax in the process, but still will pay about $26.5 million.Yankees average home attendance dropped from 41,995 in Derek Jeters final seasoon in 2014 to 39,430 last year and 37,820 this season.ddddddddddddAverage viewers on the YES Network fell from 288,000 in 2014 to 259,000 the following year to 218,000 this season -- Mets games on SNY averaged 263,850 this year, up from 242,667 in 2015. (Comcast dropped the YES Network this season in New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.)They wanted us to press that reset button and in many cases tired of seeing what was transpiring in the first few months of this year, the been-there, done-that, its time to do something that was not part of our DNA, Cashman said.He likened this period to the late 1980s and early 1990s, when the Yankees failed to make the playoffs until a renaissance led by Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte and Jorge Posada.I remember when I was the assistant farm director while we were collecting a lot of the talent like what we collected, Cashman said. Who knew we were actually sitting on a dynasty waiting to happen? None of us.Cashman also:Anticipated that he and Girardi would go through the final seasons of their contracts in 2017 and ownership will then decide after the season whether to offer new deals.Wants to reach a new deal with pitching coach Larry Rothschild; the other coaches are signed through 2017.Even though Sanchez has supplanted Brian McCann as the starting catcher, he envisions a role for McCann as a backup catcher and designated hitter. But that doesnt preclude me from listening (for a potential trade), either.Views Luis Severino as starting pitcher but is concerned about a sophomore slump that resulted in a 3-8 record and 5.83 ERA. If youre a student you go back and do your homework to brush up for your test, so you can master the next test. He was unable to do that from the starting spot all year long.
