On The Advocate’s sports pages you’ll find the serious predictions for the LSU game. This forecast comes from our armchair QB, a teacher by day and extremely dedicated LSU fan by weekend.
“While Auburn provides a tougher challenge than any opponent LSU has played so far, tough is a relative concept. Auburn’s dynamic young quarterback, Nick Marshall, will test the young LSU secondary and expect for him to push the tempo at times on Saturday. That said, this is the same Auburn program that once saw its kicker, in full pads with his helmet on, scuffle with two members of the Golden Band From Tigerland at halftime a few years back. The Tiger Band got the best of Damon Duval that day, and the Tiger offense will waltz through Auburn on the field this Saturday. After a slow start, Zach Mettenberger and the offense find their rhythm and march all over the Plainsmen. LSU wins it to the tune of 37-17.”
