A historic SEC matchup is going down this weekend in Alabama as the LSU Tigers will travel to Auburn to take on the Tigers.
LSU looked like they were back to their 2019 form last Sunday as they blew the doors off South Carolina 52-24. Surpisingly, the Tigers were without their starting quarterback in the game and turned to true freshman TJ Finley to get the job done.
Tj Finley shined in his first college start completing 17 of 25 passes for 265 yards to go along with two touchdowns and one intercetpion. He also had a score on the ground to his credit to go with 24 rushing yards.
Ed Orgeron said that Brennan would still remain the starting quarterback when he returns from injury, but Finley will be under center once again facing Auburn. LSU is going to need their skill players to step up as Auburn is much better defensively than South Carolina.
As a team, the Tigers are averaging 42 points a game on offense, while giving up 30.2 points. Running back Tyrion Davis-Price has helped trying to get the ground game going since LSU lost Clyde Edwards to the draft. Davis-Price has leads the Tigers in rushing with 245 yards on the season to go with two touchdowns.
After an ugly start to the season, Auburn hopes to build off what was by far their best offensive performance in a 35-28 win over Ole Miss.
Bo Nix is not having the season that he wanted after showing a lot of promise in his freshman season. Nix has completed 101 of 172 passes for 1107 yards to go along with six touchdowns and four interceptions. He has also ran in two touchdowns so far this season.
A bright spot for this Auburn team has been the emergence of true freshman RB Tank Bigsby. Bigsby has now taken over the starting RB role after the game against South Carolina and just been putting up numbers. Over the last two games he has rushed for 240 yards to go along with two touchdowns.
Defensiely, Auburn has been pretty solid all season. They are going to need to get pressure on the freshman QB and make him uncomfortable in the pocket as that could cause him to have some bad throws. As a team, the Tigers are allowing 25.2 points per game which is good for 38th in the FBS.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick:
I think the Auburn Tigers are the right play in this game. They have the defense equipped to slow down this LSU offense. It’s going to come down to whether or not Bo Nix can keep up with the scoring of the LSU team. Auburn per game is averaging a little over 24 points a game and that’s not going to get it done with LSU coming to town. Tank Bigsby is going to have to take advantage of the weak LSU linebackers and get a bunch of yards on the ground. Give me Auburn to get the win over the Tigers at home.
