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.
