Can Auburn Get on the Right Track This Weekend and Upset LSU?

Barrett SalleeSEC Football Lead WriterNovember 1, 2016

LSU takes its 3-0 record on the road for the first time all season, when the Tigers travel to the Plains to take on the 1-2 Auburn Tigers at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger has been good this year, but far from great, due in large part to the fact that head coach Les Miles hasn't asked him to go out and win football games just yet.

Meanwhile, Auburn hopes to use last weekend's overtime victory over Louisiana-Monroe as the catalyst to get the season turned around after back-to-back losses to Clemson and Mississippi State to open the season.

Is this the weekend that Mettenberger breaks out, or will Auburn's desperation to get things back on track translate to an upset win over No. 2 LSU?

B/R contributor Marc Kohn and SEC lead writer Barrett Sallee break down this weekend's matchup in this edition of The Program.
