Auburn vs. LSU Game Preview
We are headed into week five of college football and there are several exciting games this Saturday. The Auburn Tigers will be taking on the LSU Tigers this weekend in Baton Rouge.
Going into the game, there is a bit of question about who will be the starting quarterback for Auburn. With the quarterback battle still taking place, TJ Finley and Bo Nix could both see playing time this Saturday against LSU. After all, LSU was TJ Finley's team prior to this season so it wouldn't surprise me if he saw more playing time than usual.
“I think they’ve done a good job, every single week.... This week has been good. I think both guys have responded to their opportunities in practice," says Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin.
Outside of the quarterback battle going on at Auburn, this game could be a really close one. With LSU's current season record standing at 2-3 and Auburns sitting at 3-2, this is probably the biggest game either team has played thus far. Auburn is still settling in with their new coaching situation and they have done a good job of adapting to the change so far. We aren't quite sure what we can expect from Auburn after last week's game against Georgia State. They barely pulled away with a win after making a last minute comeback in the fourth quarter.
The Auburn vs. LSU game will take place in Baton Rouge "Death Valley" this Saturday at 8 p.m. CT. If you can't make it to the game, it will be televised on ESPN. LSU is currently a 3.5 point favorite going into this Saturday's game.
