Auburn vs LSU: News, Score and Analysis
Are you ready for the Tiger Bowl?
This weekend, No. 20 Auburn will head to Baton Rouge to face off with No. 1 LSU in a big SEC West battle.
After entering the season with modest expectations, the defending national champs have surprisingly gotten off to a 5-2 start, but this game will without a doubt be the Tigers’ toughest test of the season.
LSU has looked like the best team in college football through the first half of the year, and the Baton Rouge Tigers will have payback on their minds after coming up short in last year’s meeting.
Auburn coach Gene Chizik has decided to throw new starting quarterback Clint Moseley to the wolves (or in this case, the Tigers) and it’s going to be awfully interesting to see how Moseley handles the tenacious and relentless LSU defense.
Since LSU has a bye next week, this will be the last time we get to see LSU before their big matchup with Alabama on Nov. 5, and something tells me Les Miles’ crew is going to be looking to make a big statement to the Tide.
We’ll just have to wait and see how brutal it actually gets.
Kickoff is set for 3:30 ET, and the game will be broadcast on CBS.
Gary and Verne are pumped.
It’s not often that you see a defending national champion as a three touchdown underdog during their title defense season, but that will be the case this week when Auburn takes on No. 1 LSU in Baton Rouge.
The boys in Vegas have set the spread for this game at 22, and so far, there really hasn’t been any major line movement in either direction.
While that does seem awfully high, especially since Auburn has started the season off strong at 5-2, only losing to two Top 10 teams - Clemson and Arkansas. Remember, the Tigers will go into this one with a new starting quarterback, Clint Moseley.
The Auburn offense has been struggling lately, and that’s never good news when you have to go up against a defense the caliber of LSU’s.
For the season, LSU is 5-2 against the spread, failing to cover against Kentucky by two points and Northwestern State by three points.
The Tigers have been steamrolling over opponents lately and they’re going to be out to make a statement to Alabama on Saturday.
If I were a betting man, I’d feel fairly confident laying that type of big spread.
Auburn’s not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but there just not in the same class as LSU this year, and given the circumstances surrounding this game, this one looks like it could get away from Gene Chizik’s crew as the game wears on.
