It’s a game that could have a major say in who wins the SEC West Division this season, as the Auburn Tigers and the LSU Tigers both know they can ill afford to lose Saturday’s game against each other.
One of the players that will be in the spotlight is LSU running back Leonard Fournette, who is coming off a 159 yard and two touchdown performance in the team’s win over Mississippi State.
According to Auburn defensive back Rudy Ford, facing one of college football’s best runners isn’t going to be a challenge:
In Ford’s defense, Auburn was one of the few teams that was able to contain Fournette last year, holding him to just 42 yards on 10 carries. Still, it’s not a good idea to poke the bear before the game.
