A win at LSU is crucial for Auburn’s season

·1 min read

Auburn’s next stretch of five games is brutal.

Four of Auburn’s next five opponents are inside the top 15, and the only team that isn’t ranked (LSU) has beaten Auburn at home 10 games straight. If Auburn can’t break the cigar curse this weekend, there are some serious questions about whether or not the Tigers can make a bowl game this season, especially with mystery surrounding the quarterback position.

Here is Auburn’s remaining schedule.

  • At LSU

  • Vs No. 2 Georgia

  • At No. 8 Arkansas

  • Vs No. 12 Ole Miss

  • At No. 15 Texas A&M

  • Vs Mississippi State

  • At South Carolina

  • Vs No. 1 Alabama

If Auburn can’t beat LSU, there might only be two wins left on the schedule (MSU and South Carolina). Auburn is going to have to upset someone to get to six wins.

Mike G and C Dub of The War Rapport joined Zac Blackerby on the “Locked on Auburn podcast” to talk about what this future stretch of games could look like for the Tigers.

I think in any reasonable scenario fans should be happy with a 2-2 split over the next month. But I still think all of those games are winnable right now. It just all depends on how we look at LSU. It depends on who plays quarterback and then what kind of game plan we employ.

This weekend, we find out about this team’s culture, and how badly this team wants to win.
