    Auburn buries LSU (37-24)

    The Auburn and LSU rivalry is more heated than ever. Infact the last few games the "mic" has been shut off and both coaches ready to rock-n-roll.... The first quarter was a comedy of errors for the Auburn side, who made a number of bad reads which resulted in ill advised passes resulting in interceptions. I believe Auburn would throw 5 on the day hurting themselves early in the contest.

    To add to Auburn's woes Heisman hopeful Xavier Barnes was injured early in the 2nd quarter and as a result much of the "tigercat" offense was left on the sidelines.

    Auburn was stopped on 4th and 1, and had other drives stopped by interceptions, but the Auburn defense came to play on this day. LSU was stymied by the inability to run the ball from the running back position and Reuben Randle left his game in the dorms, as he was abysmal on this beautiful Saturday afternoon.

    The only real offense was given to LSU by the scrambling and running ability of Russell Shepard. Shepard would run around the field only to find the sidelines and middle of the field full of Auburn Tigers. The Qb at LSU will certainly remember this game as he was "crushed" on numerous occasions.

    Rollison was adequate and would throw for over 400 yards through the air. Unfortunately, this was not a day inwhich Rollison was secure with the pigskin.

    In the end the Auburn side was just to strong and were able to come away from the game as the victors. LSU was able to score two 4th quarter TD's after being down 34-10 to make the score respectable and nearly came within 1 score, but was unsuccessful on a 2 point conversion.

    Final Score:

    Auburn-37
    LSU- 24

    The game was not a masterpiece but it puts Auburn again in position to have a good season.

    GO Tigers!

    im not sure being 1 inch from making it a 1 score game midway throught 4th would best be described as "buried", but it certainly had that feel through the 2nd and 3rd qtrs.

    LSU had a chance to get a grip on the game early, but couldn't take full advantage of a rattled Auburn team. Shepard did not look himself at all and Auburn's D took him out of his comfort zone. The coaching staff didn't fair much better on the offensive side of the ball, as they called their worst game of the season for sure.

    The LSU defense played valiently, shutting down the Auburn running game, and getting turnover in bunches. They gave up a few big plays which led to the passing yardage, but for the most part, i think this unit did enough to win the game.

    GG to Mike though, he was the better player today.
