CFB: 7:45 PM EST September 21, 2013 TV: ESPN
Battle of SEC Tigers as the Auburn Tigers travel to Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, LA to face the LSU Tigers. This series has been dominated by LSU going 5-1 in last 6 head to head but Auburn nearly pulled upset last year just missing 12-10.
Auburn has looked much improved so far this year but now the strength of schedule is turned up as they move into SEC schedule. Coach Gus Malzahn is in his 1st year as Head Coach, and he has brought back his high flying offensive mindset. Auburn has played all their games at home to this point, now the Tigers head to the road trying to make it 4-0. In Week 3 Auburn beat Mississippi State by the close margin of 24-20. Surprisingly the Auburn defense has shown huge improvement this year to go along with Malzahn’s always solid offensive scheme.
Louisiana State University is on a roll. The #6 AP ranked team has utterly dominated in their last two outings, which includes their Week 3 victory over Kent State, 45-13, at home. This week's game will be their last at in a 3 game homestand in Baton Rouge. Head Coach Les Miles has his players minds focused and their bodies moving in the right directions. LSU defense might be the best in the SEC but it’s the offense that is once again the question for Coach Miles. QB Zack Metenberg has shown glimpses of greatness but can he keep it going against tough SEC defenses.
