Auburn has looked terrible this season but this will be their biggest test and if they pass it all will be forgiven.
LSU is a little more battle tested having already won a battle at Mississippi State last week. It was far from a thing of beauty.
Auburn dominated last year winning 41-7.
Jeremy Johnson was supposed to be the second coming of Cam Newton and the Tigers were going to waltz into the playoffs right? So far he has been terrible, a turnover machine.
It was one thing to get stymied by Louisville but last week they almost lost to Jacksonville State, needing overtime to get the victory. If things don’t start improving they may have to do something drastic.
And now they are walking into Death Valley.
On defense they have been OK but not all that fearsome and they are not going to get pushed around by the other Tigers physically. If they just play smart and aggressive they should be just fine.
LSU is by far the best team the Tigers will have played to date. If they keep up the ugliness this one could be over quickly.
Due to weather the Tigers only have one game under their belt so far, getting a solid but unspectacular win at Mississippi State last week.
While Auburn though it might have struck the jackpot with Jeremy Johnson LSU is just hoping for average QB play because they are very strong everywhere else.
The strength begins with Leonard Fournette who may be the bets running back in America and started his Heisman campaign by scoring all three of LSU’s TDs in last week’s victory. Combine him with a stout defense and it may be enough.
That defense may have given up some yards to Dak Prescott last week but the Bulldogs were in catchup mode and Dak is a lot better than JJ.
Look for it to be a very raucous atmosphere at LSU on Saturday, even though the game is during the day.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Prediction:
I have zero confidence in either of these teams but I definitely think that LSU is the better option in this one. Covering just a TD at home seems very manageable.

Throw in a little revenge from an embarrassment last year and it wouldn’t surprise if they win in a rout.
