So 1-1 LSU welcomed no. 5 Auburn to town and everyone knew they were going to lose.
After all, we had just seen what happened when this LSU team played an opponent that was demonstrably better than them two weeks ago. And Auburn was freakin’ good man.
A lot more went into the game than talk. LSU hadn’t beaten Auburn since ‘88, and the programs went on entirely different trajectories from that departure.
