Auburn ain’t scared of LSU’s homefield advantage

We've got some brashness coming from Auburn. Going 3-0 after winning all of three games in 2012 will apparently do that to you.

The Tigers visit another set of the SEC's Tigers in LSU this weekend, and Auburn put out a gutsy tweet.

Pretty bold, isn't it? During last season's disaster, Auburn only lost by two to LSU (12-10), but that game was at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Traveling to Death Valley to face an arguably better LSU team -- even if Auburn is vastly improved -- is going to be tougher. Auburn hasn't won in Baton Rouge since 1999.

[Watch: Will Johnny Manziel or AJ McCarron be a better QB in the NFL?]

But hey, we like the trash talk. Now the onus is on LSU to come up with something creative if it wins.
