For the final time, Auburn vs LSU will be played as an SEC West matchup on October 14 in a Week 7 matchup with far different implications for both teams.

Auburn is playing with house money after Hugh Freeze tempered expectations for the three-game stretch that started in College Station in a loss against Texas A&M on September 23, continued with another loss to Georgia on September 30 at Jordan-Hare Stadium, and ends in a road matchup at a stadium AU has won one game in during the 21st century.

LSU, on the other hand, does not have that patience on its side after coming into the season with SEC West championship projections but losses to Alabama and Ole Miss in their first six games. Brian Kelly’s got a narrative to flip of never winning the big one, but most hopes for a big postseason game end for the Bayou Bengals should Auburn upset LSU at Tiger Stadium on Saturday.

Auburn vs LSU Key Players to Watch


Jay Fair: With LSU’s defense ceding over 283 yards per game through the air, someone in Auburn’s receiving corps needs to step up and be a hero; whether it’s Payton Thorne or Robby Ashford throwing the ball.

Jay Fair is the most likely candidate as the leader in receptions and receiving yards, plus his breakaway speed. With only 22 yards off four catches in SEC play, Fair breaking out feels like a must.

Rivaldo Fairweather: In the same boat as Fair, Rivaldo Fairweather could be due for a breakout against a suspect LSU secondary if the quarterback situation under center is one Freeze and Philip Montgomery could figure out.

Fairweather had as many receiving yards (44) against Georgia as every single one of his teammates combined, and things should be far easier against LSU; even on the road.

Jayden Daniels: Coming off his most dynamic game from a play-making perspective, amassing 389 all-purpose yards, including 130 with his legs, against Missouri on October 7, Jayden Daniels is aiming to singlehandedly pull LSU back to the top of the SEC West in 2023.

With a 19:2 touchdown-interception ratio through the first six games of the season, Daniels figures to punish the Tigers defensively on Saturday night — putting the onus on the defense to slow down AU enough for it to matter.

Malik Nabers: When Daniels is doing his damage to Auburn’s defense, it’ll likely be Malik Nabers doing the spectacular on the other end of those passes. Nabers leads LSU in receptions by nine catches and receiving yards by 168.

A future NFLer, Nabers could use AU’s secondary in his highlight tape if Ron Roberts and Co. allow another Brock Bowers-type star showing from the opposition.

Auburn vs LSU Prediction and Pick

Auburn’s offense is going to make more plays than usual, but there’s a reason they are predicted to lose by at least two scores. LSU, with more urgency and the Death Valley home crowd behind them, is likely to hand AU its third straight loss.

And it could happen in style.

Auburn’s defense may hang with LSU for a half, but by the time the fourth quarter rolls around, their offense may have kept Roberts’s point-prevention unit on the field too long. Exhaustion plus LSU’s offense isn’t a winning equation for Auburn.

Prediction: LSU -11
