Auburn's Heartbreak vs. LSU

For the second consecutive season, the Auburn Tigers fell to the LSU Tigers in dramatic fashion thanks to LSU placekicker Cole Tracy 42-yard game winning field goal.

The Tigers from Baton Rouge started out hot with an interception of Jarrett Stidham on Auburn's first drive of the game, a one-yard touchdown run from Clyde Edwards-Helaire and a 33-yard field goal from Tracy.

For most of the second and third quarters, Auburn took control by scoring 21 unanswered points. Jatarvious Whitlow and Shaun Shivers each added seven-yard scoring runs while Stidham added a four-yard touchdown toss to Darius Slayton to push Auburn to a 21-10 advantage.

From that point on, LSU regained momentum with a second Tracy field goal and quarterback Joe Burrow's 71-yard scoring strike to Derrick Dillon to draw the Bayou Bengals to 21-19.

On LSU's final drive of the game, they marched 52 yards in 14 plays milking off the final 5:38 of the game to set up Tracy's game-winner.

For Auburn, the defense failed to get off the field in the fourth quarter as LSU snapped the ball 18 times compared to Auburn's eight snaps.
