The LSU Tigers beat the Auburn Tigers 12-10, so as you'd imagine the highlights aren't filled with many offensive hijinx. The two touchdowns on the day were one and four yard rushes. Here's the video highlights below.

You'll see Auburn's Tre Mason try to get out of his own end zone and absolutely fail, resulting in an LSU safety and an early 2-0 lead. After a Tiger touchdown, Onterio McCalebb would later punch in Auburn's only touchdown on a four yard scamper to cut the LSU lead to 9-7. Kiehl Frazier would then find Emory Blake for an incredible 22-yard catch above that set up an Auburn go-ahead field goal to make it 10-9 Auburn.

But LSU responded, as Zack Mettenberger would connect with Kadron Boone on a 29 yard play to set up a go-ahead Drew Alleman field goal in the third quarter. The LSU defense settled in from there, including intercepting Frazier on the final play of the game.
