LSU has won the last two games against Auburn by a total of four points. And, the difference in both games, was Joe Burrow. Last year, he led to a nine point fourth quarter, and a one point win. One year later, against perhaps the SEC`s best defense, Burrow completed 32 of 42 passes, and ran for the game winning touchdown early in the fourth quarter. The win 23-20 was quite different than many this season.
"We have very talented team, great players," Burrow said. "I think we can win 7-6, and we can 70-62. We have great players all over the field. Tough guys all around."
So the Tigers are 8-0 and they have a bye week, before playing you know who in Tuscaloosa November 9th. LSU players knew the questions about the team to the East in red were coming. They were ready.
"It is a big game, and now it is the biggest game," said Clyde Edwards-Helaire. "So, we will go into it prepared, with film study. And, go back to fundamentals."
