LSU-Auburn: 6 Reasons Why LSU Lost the Game

The LSU Tigers ran into a buzzsaw yesterday afternoon in their game in Auburn, Alabama, against an extremely talented and explosive Auburn team that's led by the greatest player in college football. 

Cam Newton certainly proved to be everything we heard and much more, as he and the Auburn offense proved to be was much more than LSU's No. 1 ranked defense could handle. 

LSU came into this game as the top rated defense in the SEC and they were ranked in the top five of all of college football. But, in the game's end, it was an embarrassing and humbling loss to Auburn.

Cam Newton and the Auburn Tigers gashed and sliced up LSU's defense all day as they rushed for more yards than any team has ever rushed for against LSU in the history of the school.  

Coming into this game both teams were undefeated and the game will go a long way in deciding  who will win the SEC West and then play for the SEC championship. 

As a result of this game LSU is all but out of the SEC race and it is now Auburn's championship to lose. 

The question for LSU is simple : How Did LSU Allow This To Happen To Them?

To answer that question, I have offered six reasons for this devastating LSU loss.  I want to say LSU fought hard, but they were like a fighter swinging at the air.  They just were not very effective at doing much to stop the Auburn offensive onslaught, especially in the second half.   

But the Auburn Tigers are not just a one dimensional team that revolves totally around Cam Newton.  Newton also has a talented backfield that he can to also devastate any defense. 

Cam Newton is all he is advertised to be and much much more.  This guy comes as close to being the  real live superman as college football has ever seen.  I know Tim Tebow was given that title, but not even the great Tim Tebow could do the many things that Cam Newton can do.

Just think how sick the Florida Gator fans must be to see their former quarterback excelling and starring for another SEC Rival.  And boy, how much could the Gators use that guy this year to help their struggling offense?

But it looks like Auburn will be the beneficiary of Cam Newtons immense talents that could vault them right into the BCS Championship game.
