LSU football suffers big loss to Auburn

Saturday’s game did not go as planned for LSU football, which took an incredible loss to the Auburn Tigers with a final score of 48-11. Many people are even calling this a historic loss for LSU because it has been the worst one since 1996 when it lost to the Florida Gators 56-13.

This shocked a lot of fans, and the current state of LSU football is not looking good. It will need to make more than a few changes in order to defeat Alabama on Nov. 14.

Both LSU’s offense and defense did not look its best this past weekend. There seemed to be a number of mistakes and hiccups throughout the game that led LSU to another loss, making its record now 2-3. While there is always room for improvement, it is certainly going to take a lot of practice for LSU to come back and attempt to turn its season around.


Another game played without Myles Brennan surely did not help the team whatsoever. LSU’s offense did not play as well as it should have as it allowed four sacks and five hurries. It also had a scoreless first quarter and did not score a touchdown until the fourth quarter.

TJ Finley did perfectly fine in his first collegiate game against South Carolina, but the game against Auburn did not look as good as we thought it would. only completed 13 of 24 passes for 143 yards, and he had no touchdowns. He cost the team two interceptions and a sack fumble that was returned for a touchdown.

In the fourth quarter, Max Johnson entered and completed 15 of 24 passes for 172 yards. He even scored one touchdown in the final 8 minutes of the game, which saved LSU from a zero-touchdown performance.


LSU’s defense certainly did not play any better than its offense. Its performance was weak and it gave away one too many touchdowns to Auburn. It allowed Auburn’s quarterback Bo Nix to have one of his best games of their season.

How Auburn played

Auburn played very well and surprisingly demolished LSU. At halftime, it had a 21-3 lead and continued to tear down LSU in the second half. Nix completed 18 of 24 passes for 300 yards and three touchdowns. In the fourth quarter, Nix threw the ball to wide receiver Anthony Schwartz at LSU’s 46-yard line, which allowed him to run it in for a 91-yard touchdown drive.

In a postgame interview, head coach Ed Orgeron said, “We will look at the things we need to get fixed like we always do. We’ll work on getting them fixed. Obviously, we’ve got to get better at a lot of things.”

With a bye week ahead of it, this gives LSU some time to prepare for its big game against Alabama. This game definitely will not be an easy one. If LSU wants to win the next game, it is going to have to fight for it.
