Auburn v LSU, The 2010 Edition

  • As we move toward one of the most important Saturday's in recent AU history, here is a look back at some of the better AU/LSU games, along with other odds and ends.

    (information from AU GameDay Notes)

    CLOSE ENCOUNTERS
    Twelve of the 22 meetings in the Auburn-
    LSU series since 1988 have been decided by less
    than a touchdown. And like all good Southern
    football series, many of those games have earned
    memorable titles. Examples:
    1988: LSU scored with 1:41 remaining to
    down fourth-ranked Auburn, 7-6. The noise
    from the Tiger Stadium crowd registered on a
    campus seismograph, thus earning the contest
    the title of “Earthquake Game.”
    1994: Auburn returned three of its five
    fourth-quarter interceptions for touchdowns to
    rally from a two-touchdown deficit and win 30-
    26. Auburn and LSU fans alike still recall the
    “Interception Game.”

    1995: Wearing the traditional white jerseys
    at home for the first time in 13 years, LSU
    stunned fifth-ranked Auburn, 12-6, when Troy
    Twillie intercepted Patrick Nix’s 11-yard pass
    into the end zone with no time remaining. The
    1997 LSU media guide referred to this game
    under the heading “Bring Back The Magic.”
    1996: “The Night The Barn Burned” will
    long be remembered on the Plains. As the old
    Auburn Sports Arena burned just outside
    Jordan-Hare Stadium, LSU defeated Auburn 19-
    15. After missing three field goals and an extra
    point, Auburn cut LSU’s lead to 17-15 with :38
    remaining, but Jon Cooley’s two-point pass
    attempt was picked off by Raion Hill, who
    returned it the other way for two points.
    1997: Dameyune Craig led Auburn on an
    80-yard, 10-play drive in the game’s final three
    minutes to deliver a 31-28 upset of 10th-ranked
    LSU in “The Comeback.” Rusty Williams capped
    the drive on a 1-yard touchdown plunge with :30
    remaining. LSU attempted a 65-yard FG on the
    game’s final play, but Quinton Reese blocked it to
    seal the Auburn win.
    2004: With the threat of Hurricane Ivan
    looming, members of the Auburn football team
    spent Wednesday though Friday nights in hotels
    as the Auburn University campus was closed, but
    the game went on as scheduled. The seemingly
    automatic extra point proved to be a challenge
    for both teams, but a second chance for Auburn
    allowed the Tigers to emerge with a 10-9 win in
    “The Extra Point Game.” LSU missed the PAT
    after its first-quarter touchdown, but still led 9-3
    late in the game. After Courtney Taylor hauled in
    a 16-yard score with just 1:14 left to tie the score,
    Auburn missed its extra point. An LSU personal
    foul gave John Vaughn a second chance, and he
    delivered the winning point.
    2005: The first overtime game between the
    two teams was won by LSU, 20-17, when John
    Vaughn’s 39-yard field goal attempt bounced off
    the left upright. A 30-yard field goal by LSU’s
    Chris Jackson to start the overtime turned out to
    be the winning points. Jackson forced overtime
    with a 44-yard field goal with just 1:40 left,
    moments after Auburn had taken a 17-14 lead on
    a 5-yard pass from Brandon Cox to Anthony Mix
    on fourth down with 4:52 left.
    2006: In a battle between two top-10 teams,
    Brandon Cox’s 1-yard quarterback sneak in the
    third quarter was the only touchdown in a 7-3
    Auburn victory. No. 3 Auburn held off two late
    scoring chances for No. 6 LSU, as Eric Brock
    ended one drive by tipping away a fourth-down
    pass, then tackled Craig Davis on the 4-yard line
    on the game’s final play to preserve the victory.
    2007: Matt Flynn hit Demetrius Byrd with a
    22-yard scoring pass with just one second left to lift
    No. 5 LSU to a 30-24 victory over No. 18 Auburn.
    Brandon Cox had connected with Rodgeriqus
    Smith on a 3-yard scoring pass with just 3:21 left to
    give Auburn a 24-23 lead before Flynn’s pass
    capped a 58-yard game-winning drive.
    2008: Jarrett Lee’s 18-yard touchdown pass
    to Brandon LaFell with 1:03 left gave No. 6 LSU a
    come-from-behind 26-21 win over No. 10
    Auburn in Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn had
    taken a 21-20 lead with just 6:40 left when Chris
    Todd found Robert Dunn for a 15-yard score,
    before Lee led LSU on the game-winning drive.
    In all, 21 of the 44 games played between the
    two schools have been decided by a touchdown
    or less, with LSU owning an 11-9-1 edge in those
    games.

    VS. TEAMS RANKED NO. 6

    Auburn has an all-time record of 4-4
    against teams ranked No. 6 in the Associated
    Press poll. Ironically, Auburn’s last two games
    against No. 6-ranked teams were also against
    LSU, in 2006 and 2008. No. 3 Auburn won the
    2006 game, 7-3, and LSU won the 2008 contest
    over No. 10 Auburn, 21-16. Auburn’s other victories
    over No. 6-ranked teams came in 1954
    (14-13 over Miami (Fla.)), 1963 (10-8 over
    Alabama) and 1965 (23-18 over Kentucky.
    Auburn has a better record against No. 6 teams
    when the Tigers are not ranked (2-1) then when
    Auburn is ranked (2-3).
