Landon’s Call: Tiger Bowl

One of week 3’s three key matchups featured a battle of two top 15 ranked SEC West teams; LSU and Auburn. The rivalry between these two is known as the Tiger bowl, and like two Tigers, these two teams fought until the very end.

The first quarter showed the explosiveness of LSU in a hostile environment, but a late second quarter surge by Auburn gave them a 4-point halftime lead. Auburn kept up the tempo on offense but a few defensive mistakes made the score 21-13 at the end of the third quarter.

With 8 minutes left in the ball game LSU had a 1st & 10 from their own 29, after an Auburn punt. A perfect throw from Joe Burrow, to Derrick Dillon, who was running a crossing route, brought the tigers within 2. After a failed 2-pt attempt, LSU’s defense stood strong forcing a three and out. From there LSU would run out the last 5 minutes and 36 seconds setting up a field goal with 2 seconds remaining. Senior kicker Cole Tracy came on for a 42 yard field goal, he had already missed from 52, but had no trouble putting this one through to give LSU a 22-21 victory over rival Auburn.
