Challenges await No. 18 LSU QB, offensive line at Auburn
BATON ROUGE - Trips to Auburn haven't been kind to LSU in recent years. If that is to change, coach Les Miles' 18th-ranked squad will need poised performances from a banged-up offensive line and a recently promoted quarterback making his first road start in the Southeastern Conference.
Auburn has already been beaten at home twice this season by Clemson and Texas A&M. In fact, six straight SEC teams have won in Jordan-Hare Stadium.
But LSU has dropped six of eight at Auburn, and LSU's offense doesn't exactly look like a juggernaut as it prepares to meet an Auburn defense run by former LSU defensive coordinator Kevin Steele.
Miles says quarterback Danny Etling knows what he needs to do for the Tigers to win. Etling, a junior who transferred from Purdue, says his action with the Boilermakers as a freshman and sophomore have given him at least a taste of the environment he'll have to contend with at Auburn (1-2, 0-1).
