No. 5 Auburn 41, No. 15 LSU 7
While many of the country’s top teams fell victim to the upset bug on Saturday, the Auburn Tigers steamrolled LSU on their way to an impressive home victory. Nick Marshall passed for 207 yards and ran for another 119, finding the end zone on four occasions (twice through the air and twice on the ground). Auburn’s win set the stage for a huge SEC West showdown with Mississippi State this Saturday in Starkville.
For LSU, the 34-point loss was its largest under Les Miles, and the Tigers are off to an 0-2 start in conference play for the first time in Miles’s tenure.
