Three. Eight. Fifty-six point seven. One. One. Oooonne. That's NumberWang!

After, what felt like a brief bye week, the Auburn Tigers stormed Pat Dye Field on Saturday and razed the Hogs! (See what I did there? No? See to "raze" is to completely destroy, level, flatten and Arkansas' mascot is the Razorbacks. Get it? Raze. Razorbacks. No, you're right, that's stupid.) Auburn has gone on a run (no, that's not a pun...or is it) since their loss to TAMU and the Tigers are hitting the road for the second time to take on a faltering, yet still dangerous, Ole Miss Rebels team.

So as Auburn plans to continue their mid-season resurgence and Ole Miss struggles, let's take a look at how Auburn and Ole Miss compare statistically.
