Auburn travels to Baton Rouge for its second trip to “Death Valley”, but this time it won’t be under the lights and it won’t be against on the best teams in the country. LSU has struggled so far this season, and now they’ll be suffering through a cadre of injured starters up front and at the skill positions.
For us, the Auburn Tiger offense has only improved each week, scoring 40 points or more in three straight SEC games, while the defense has kept up to the high standard they’ve enjoyed over the entire course of the season.
Jarrett Stidham’s playing like one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the country, we’ve got multiple deep threats at receiver, and a warrior at running back in Kerryon Johnson, who leads the nation with 12 rushing touchdowns. Oh, there’s also the fact that we haven’t won in Tiger Stadium since we lit cigars in 1999, cursing the job Voldemort-style and ensuring that we wouldn’t get a victory until some chosen one emerges.
There’s a lot at stake here.
How are you going to watch this one? Or listen? You’ve got multiple options for both.

It’s time to break the streak of misery, shame, and woe that comes from that bourbon-glazed field down in Baton Rouge. Let’s go do it. War Eagle.
