A top-10 team is on upset alert late Saturday night. No. 10 Auburn finds itself in a tight battle with unranked Southern Mississippi with just over seven minutes left to play.

Auburn currently leads 21-13, which is much closer than the experts predicted when this game kicked off. The Tigers have just 330 yards of offense on the night, though the defense has been stout, giving up just over 200 total yards.

The Golden Eagles have the ball as time is winding down.

Can the Tigers hang on?

Auburn opened the season with a huge victory over Washington, but lost a heartbreaker to LSU for their first loss of the season. The team hopes to bounce back with a win tonight.
