BATON ROUGE, La. -- To Auburn coach Gene Chizik, No. 2 LSU is playing "at the top of its game." But that game, to this point, has not been against opponents like Auburn that are built to combat physical SEC opponents like LSU and have the resources to get it done. With LSU heading to the Plains, what will that mean Saturday when the two SEC West Tigers meet?

1. An opportunity, a stumbling block?

For 1-2 Auburn, a win Saturday would erase the memories of early struggles, including losses to Clemson and Mississippi State and a near-loss, in overtime, against Louisiana-Monroe while cooling down the seat of coach Gene Chizik. For 3-0 LSU, Auburn represents the first team with the physicality and SEC speed to challenge LSU at its strengths.
