Les Miles is 6-0 as LSU head coach vs Auburn in Baton Rouge. At Auburn, the results are far different.

Miles is 2-3 at Auburn. His Tigers have scored 65 points in those 5 games.

Quarterback Danny Etling says Jordan-Hare as earned its reputation as a tough place for visiting teams.

“It is going to be a tough place to play,” said Etling. “It deserves the respect it has earned.”

In his first start, Etling threw for 215 yards and a touchdown in LSU’s 23-20 over Mississippi State. Etling, a transfer from Purdue, sat out the 2015 season. He says his days of being an anonymous quarterback at LSU are over.
