Les Miles' Tigers have steamrolled their opponents in the first three weeks of the season, defeating North Texas, Washington and Idaho by a combined 145-31 score.
LSU has dominated opponents thanks in large part to their rushing attack. Coming into Saturday's game against Auburn, the Tigers average a staggering 269.3 yards per game on the ground. Kenny Hilliard leads LSU with 303 rushing yards, averaging 8.2 yards per carry, and six touchdowns.
Auburn, meanwhile, narrowly escaped an 0-3 start last week, needing overtime to defeat UL-Monroe. Clemson defeated Auburn in Week 1, 26-19, before Mississippi State defeated Auburn in Week 2, 28-10.
Auburn has struggled to score points, averaging just 20 points per game thus far. Sophomore quarterback Kiehl Frazier is just 34-of-67 passing on the season, and has passed for 449 yards. Frazier has thrown five interceptions and just two touchdown passes.
If Auburn is going to have any chance against LSU, Fraizer and the offense will have to play much, much better.
