LSU Coach Les Miles has good things to say about Auburns defense and saying they are a very talented team, and they will be very prepared to play his Tigers at Jordan Hare Field. The Auburn defense is very stout as they look ahead to try to slow down Leonard Fournette who has a big game against Auburn last year, in Tiger Stadium totaling 228 yards and 3 rushing Tds. LSU Fournette was running over players and tossing players over his shoulders in the last meeting against Auburn.
LSU has found a quarterback in Danny Etling so they might see a lot less of Fournette running the ball. Since LSU has started Etling, LSU Offense Coordinator Cam Cameron lines up LSU in a 4 set receiver slot and uses his tight ends very effectively. The addition of Danny Etling the Purdue transfer has added a lot of dimensions to LSU’s offense. A question was asked during the teleconference how did Cam Caneron came across Danny Etling, it was said they had a connection through acquaintances and recruiting and they kept up with him while he was at Purdue. Etling was looking for somewhere to transfer knowing Purdue just got a new coach and the transfer was on to LSU.
Gus Malzahn had a lot to say about Arden Keys and LSU running the ball. Malzahn said a couple of his defensive players circle this game last year. Last year the Auburn Defense started talking trash before the LSU Game. The players started tweeting Fournette, he replied to their tweets, but had the last words as Fournette steamrolled their secondary as LSU won 45-21. LSU and the Auburn Tigers are schedule tomorrow 5pm central time at Jordan Hare Stadium.
