The LSU Tigers will be traveling to Auburn to open up their SEC season Saturday night, and two things are for certain: There will not be a 42.5 point spread like there was last week against Idaho. Also, they will have to do much more than just show up to win this one.
This game is a matchup between the SEC's last two champions.
The last time the two teams met, LSU laid a beating on the Tigers, winning by a score of 45-10 at home last season.
Entering the game, LSU has been quite impressive, albeit against lackluster opponents. The Tigers are 3-0 in the young season and looking to continue their success as they will square up against the underwhelming Auburn Tigers.
Auburn has yet to show the flair it's shown in recent seasons, as the squad from The Plains enters the game 1-2 on the season. Auburn, though, is coming off an overtime win against UL-Monroe Saturday. A game where it tallied 418 yards on offense, 255 of which were on the ground.
While the game may be a layup for some, others think LSU may be entering a trap game as it looks forward to a couple tough SEC games in the near future.
Here are five keys LSU must hit on to make this game a cakewalk.
