The replay officials had a busy first half in the Auburn-Mississippi State game.

They overturned three on-the-field calls, with two of them coming on apparent Bulldogs touchdowns. The Tigers wound up ahead 21-10 at halftime.

In the first quarter, Jeffery Simmons forced a fumble by Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham. Montez Sweat picked it up and raced to the end zone, but officials had blown the play dead.

Replay officials overturned the call but Mississippi State was left taking over at Auburn's 32 because the whistle had blown, to the dismay of coach Dan Mullen.

The Bulldogs had back-to-back false start penalties on third down and settled for Jace Christmann's 40-yard field goal.

A targeting call against Auburn safety Tray Matthews was also overturned after further review. He appeared to lead with his shoulder not his helmet on the play.

Mississippi State's second negated touchdown didn't end up costing the Bulldogs points. Fitzgerald lost the ball stretching it across the goal line while Matthews tried to bring him down. It was called a TD. Replay officials instead ruled that he was down inside the 1, but the Bulldogs wound up scoring three plays later.
