It's been a big week for the LSU Tigers football team.  They started the 2018 season beating the Miami Hurricanes decisively then jumped up 14 spots in the national polls to be ranked at #11.

Now the Tigers will have a true test early in the season when they travel to Alabama next weekend to face the 7th ranked Auburn Tigers on their home turf.

The game has been picked up by CBS so that means the game will take place in the afternoon with a 2:30pm start.  This will be a huge contest for both teams and could set the tone for the rest of the season.

Before LSU takes on Auburn, they will have to focus on the task at hand this weekend when they host Southeastern Louisiana at 6pm this Saturday September 8th, 2018 at Tigers stadium.  That game will be televised on ESPN2.
