AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - The Auburn Tigers are hoping their apparent improvement will carry over into Southeastern Conference play.

The Tigers have dropped 10 consecutive Southeastern Conference games and been outscored by an average of 25.7 points in that stretch of futility.

They're 2-0 going into Saturday night's game against Mississippi State with wins over Washington State and Arkansas State.

Cornerback Jonathon Mincy said Tuesday "we're trying to have a big turnaround this year."

The Tigers have produced a strong running game and the defense has gone six quarters without allowing a touchdown for the first time since 2008.

A fuller measure of Auburn's improvement will come against SEC opponents.

Coach Gus Malzahn says now "we're playing against some of the best teams in America and we'll face more adversity."
