    If true, then things are looking good for our chances Saturday...

    LSU #1 total defense (242.1 a game) vs. AU #1 total offense (481.1 yards per game = 239 avg yards per game difference.

    Who's got the edge?

    As long as we don't spot them 10-14 pts due to TO's we do.

    Chaos, to be fair, Patrick Peterson handed Florida 7 points, and our coverage team gave up 7 more. We don't need anyone to give AU anything, as we'll have to play our best and likely play the refs, too.

    True, they did have a hiccup game. But overall, Peterson and special teams have been a major asset to the team thus far this year. Jefferson, not so much.

    I don't disagree with that piece of the equation. Jefferson has ranged from awful to not-good-at-all. I hope JL brings his A game and actually gets to play.

    Moo U held Auburn to 17 pts. Granted that was early in the season and Auburn is clicking on all cylinders now but the LSU D will be tough. Auburn will get its points, I say at least 24, so the question is whether the LSU offense can avoid the penalties and turnovers that stall drives. It will also depend on how often JL gets under center.

    I also think that we really have to open up the playbook. The gameplan vs McNeese was painfully vanilla. I'm not saying that we need to chuck it downfield every other play, but we have to show enough to keep Auburn guessing. The way to take advantage of a bad defense is to keep them off-balance. Then, you can pretty much do what you want.
