War Eagle, everybody! Tonight, the Auburn Tigers will host the LSU Tigers in Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn limps into this game at 1–2, having lost to Clemson and Texas A&M, both games with poor offensive showings. LSU has likewise struggled on offense but righted the ship last week with a win over Mississippi State at home. LSU is 2–1 with a season-opening loss to Wisconsin in Green Bay. This game kicks off at 5:00 Central Time on ESPN.
According to most experts, both head coaches are battling for their jobs in this one. Both offenses have struggled, but both teams have been pretty salty on defense. For both teams, the key to this game is to protect the football, play for field position, and wait for the other team to make a mistake. Of course, if a weakness is evident, I expect that both coaches would exploit it, if they are able. Still, I am very much seeing a 7–3, or 10–9 type slobberknocker in this one.
Another fine football evening is in the offing at Auburn. It will still be daylight at kickoff, and the temperature should be around 90 degrees, falling through the 80’s during the game. There should be few clouds, and sunblock is advised for those in the stands. It will be around halftime before the sun sets.
As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I’ll be in the stands for this one, camera in one hand and rosters in the other. And I’ll be yelling “War Eagle!” till my throat is raw. War Eagle, and beat LSU!
