Tail of Two Tigers Continues as LSU vs. Auburn Saturday Night [VIDEO]
The undefeated LSU Tigers are on the way to Jordan-Hare Stadium to take on Auburn Saturday night at 6pm.
LSU’s Bayou Bengals are 3-0 while the Auburn Tigers have 1 victory and 2 losses. But everytime these two teams meet to play football we can expect lots of excitement!
And with Auburn trying to get back on track, we might see more excitement than usual.
There are some key players you should keep an eye on during this game.
Auburn’s defense might have a bone to pick with LSU’s junior fullback No. 44 J.C. Copeland.
After the LSU Tigers’ 45-10 win over Auburn last year Copeland said, “After the first couple of hits, everybody (on Auburn’s defense) was just backing up. They didn’t want to hit at all. I actually said, ‘C’mon man, you’re better than that. C’mon, hit me.’ That was like the only game I went home and had no nicks and bruises at all.”
Copeland’s statement could trigger some extra excitement Saturday night as Auburn might hold a grudge.
Auburn’s sophomore quarterback No. 10 Kiehl Frazier has lots of people depending on him this weekend and Auburn will go only as far he is able to take them.
Frazier has only aquired 60 total points for Auburn, hardly a match to LSU’s 145 total points. LSU will put up some points Saturday so Frazier will have to take lots of risks all night long.
LSU QB No. 8 Zach Mettenberger and the LSU offense have dominated in this season’s first three games.
Mettenberger has made some good choices that have given him a completion percentage above 65 percent.
LSU’s backup running back No. 27 Kenny Hilliard is another star player to watch in this game as he fills the shoes of Alfred Blue who is out with injuries. Hilliard has an average of 8.2 yards per rush with with a whopping total of 303 yards not to mention 6 touchdowns. He should have no problem with Auburn.
