BATON ROUGE, Ala. (WALA) - The Auburn Tigers traveled to "Death Valley" to take on the 6th ranked LSU Tigers.
In a complete downpour, Auburn got off to a disappointing start with a fumbled handoff in the first drive which led to an LSU touchdown; and again during the second drive, a fumbled punt lead to another LSU touchdown from RB Jeremy Hill.
In the second half, Auburn scored it’s first touchdown of the night, on a 2 yard run from Tre Mason. Mason scored again in the third quarter and after three, LSU led Auburn 28 to 14.
Both LSU and Auburn scored in the final quarter, as Auburn lost on the road to LSU 35 to 21.
Gus Malzahn says there’s a lot to build off with this loss to Tigers.
“There were some missed opportunities, without a doubt. You have to give LSU some credit. They are a good team, but you just cannot miss the opportunities that you have. You have to seize the moment. It is frustrating. We did not execute like we can. The way LSU plays has something to do with that. At the same time, we have high expectations for our team, and we could have played better. But again, you have to give LSU credit. I can tell you that we will improve moving forward,” said Malzahn.
“I am happy with where we are heading as a team. A lot of guys that were here last year are back. They know how it feels from last year to give up or lose badly. That feeling can carry over to next year, and we didn’t want to go through that again. None of my teammates quit tonight,” said running back, Tre Mason.
