The top-ranked LSU Tigers have won all seven of their games by double figures thus far, and they will attempt to remain unbeaten this weekend when the 19th-ranked Auburn Tigers come to Baton Rouge for an SEC showdown.
The winner of the Auburn-LSU game has won the SEC West and advanced to Atlanta for the conference championship in five of the last eight seasons, and seven of the past 11.
Auburn is facing its third top-10 opponent in the last four weeks, so the stiff competition is nothing new for the defending national champs. Gene Chizik's Tigers need one more victory to earn bowl eligibility, as they are 5-2 to date. Last weekend, the club put forth a tremendous defensive performance in a 17-6 victory over Florida.
Game date, time: 3:30 pm ET, Saturday, October 22nd
Location: Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
TV channel: CBS
Spread: LSU favored by 20
Series history: LSU leads, 24-18-1
