This is only the third career visit to a Southeastern Conference stadium for LSU freshman coach Brian Kelly.

KEY COMPARISON: LSU’s defense has seen its first shutout since 2018, holding New Mexico for 88 total yards and two first downs in a 38-0 win a week after the Tigers reduced Mississippi State’s “air raid” offense to 16 held points. Auburn’s offense was faltering even before quarterback TJ Finley’s shoulder injury. LSU gives up just 257.8 yards per game, ranking 12th nationally. Auburn’s offensive average of 376.8 yards is 89th.
PLAYERS TO SEE: LSU: WR Kayshon Boutte returns after missing game in New Mexico following the birth of his son. Boutte torched Auburn for 99 yards on the opening run last season, including a 31-yard touchdown in one game after the offense lost 22 yards on a fumble. Boutte finished the game for 127 yards on six catches.
Auburn: RB Tank Bigsby hasn’t been a huge factor in the last three games, totaling 134 yards on 41 carries, a 3.3-yard average. He opened with a 16-carry, 147-yard, and two-touchdown attempt against Mercer. New quarterback Robby Ashford will need Bigsby and Jarquez Hunter to lean on in the running game.
