AUBURN, Ala. -- After LSU struggled mightily to subdue Auburn on Saturday, holding on for dear life in its 12-10 win, the questions about what's wrong with the Tigers arose.

What's wrong with the passing game? Is anybody going to make plays like Tyrann Mathieu made last season? Are they too young?

They are reasonable questions. Last year's LSU team was flawed, sure, as Alabama exposed in the BCS championship game. But aside from Alabama, no opponent challenged LSU last season the way Auburn did Saturday. Mathieu would return a kick or a turnover back for a touchdown to change a game. Brad Wing would pin an opponent deep, flipping the field. Something would happen every game, even if the offense struggled, to shift momentum.
