Auburn football: News, analysis and predictions for LSU week

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn football is back in the top 10 for the first time in almost a year and it has a chance to snap a long-running losing streak this Saturday at LSU.

The No. 10 Tigers will travel to Death Valley this Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. CT on CBS) looking for their first road win over LSU since 1999 — 18 years ago. Auburn comes in as the hotter team, as it has scored 40-plus points in three straight SEC games, all blowout wins, for the first time in school history.

LSU regained some momentum last week in a low-scoring win over Florida in the Swamp. The Bayou Bengals will be looking for some more of that Baton Rouge magic this Saturday, as Auburn just hasn’t been able to get over the hump against LSU in Tiger Stadium.

Auburn kicks off a three-game road trip this weekend that could make or break its chances at a special season. Here’s your one stop for all of SEC Country’s coverage for this matchup between Auburn and LSU:
