SCOUTING THE OFFENSE
For all the attention directed at RBs Carnell Williams and Ronnie Brown, the real key to the offense remains the play of QB Jason Campbell. He's played well in the first two games but LSU will provide a much tougher test for Campbell and the offensive line. The biggest question mark hovers over a group of receivers who struggled to hold on to Campbell's passes last week.
SCOUTING THE DEFENSE
The first-team defense has yet to allow a point in two games and has won the battles up front with a rebuilt front seven, but they Tigers have yet to face a team with a line or backs comparable to LSU's talent. If Auburn can't slow down the run and put LSU's QBs in difficult situations, LSU will become more and more dangerous as the games wears on.
QUOTE TO NOTE
"We have a chance to play one of the best teams in the country, the defending national champs. This is why you come to Auburn, why you come to play college football. ... It's an opportunity for the Auburn football team to show the world we are good. It's going to be crazy out there." -- Auburn RB Carnell Williams, who rushed for only 61 yards on 20 carries in last year's 31-7 loss at LSU.
