Things have been dicey between New Mexico State and Auburn, with the Tigers trailing 10-7 in the 3rd quarter.

High Freeze’s team has already locked up a bowl bid on the strength of a 3-game winning streak. They’re looking to make it 4 in a row heading into the Iron Bowl vs. Alabama, but the visiting Aggies have given them all they can handle on Saturday.

Earlier in the afternoon, though, it got a little chippy. Watch as NMSU quarterback Diego Pavia absolutely bodyslammed an Auburn defender in the 1st quarter:

That led to a brief skirmish following the whistle; Pavia was ultimately called for an unneccesary roughness penalty.

Things haven’t erupted further between the 2 teams, but it’s setting up to be a fight to the finish. Can the Tigers turn the tables and shake off a New Mexico State team that is enjoying its best season in decades?
