LSU – Auburn, y’all. Each year this rivalry game produces a memorable finish and adds to the long chapter of history between these two teams. There was the “Earthquake Game” in 1988 and the “Night the Barn Burned” in 1996. In 2007, the year of LSU’s last National Championship, LSU was trailing 24-23 in the final seconds of the game when Matt Flynn found an open Demetrius Byrd for the game-winning touchdown. I will never forget being in the student section for that game as Byrd came down with the game-winner as one second remained on the clock.
And, of course, we can’t forget the last time LSU and Auburn met before last Saturday afternoon. In 2016, the LSU Tigers went into Jordan-Hare Stadium thinking we had won on a last second touchdown, only for it to be taken off the board and the head coach fired the next day.
Now, we have another one to add to the list.
