***Chizik called this an exciting week for his team and said it's great to play a game like this back at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
"We understand the challenges that are ahead for us ... but this is what college football is all about," Chizik said.
***Chizik said LSU was better than Auburn on special teams last year but feels like it is a good matchup for Auburn this year.
***Chizik said this is one of the most physical games Auburn plays every year.
"They try to out-physical you, run the ball, play-action and take some deep shots throughout the game," Chizik said.
***Chizik said QB Kiehl Frazier has done a good job of overcoming adversity and every week will be a challenge for him. He said QB's have to have a short memory and show poise under pressure.
"The main thing is trying to get him some success early in the game," he said.
***Chizik said Auburn must find a way to establish a running game against LSU to take pressure off of Frazier.
"They're giving up less than 50 yards a game running the football but we've got to find a way to run it," Chizik said.
***More on the running game...
"We've done some good things in the run game and I expect the run game to improve," he said.
***Chizik said he hasn't seen any dropoff in LSU's defense without Tyrann Mathieu.
***Chizik on is expectations for his team this week...
"Our expectations are to go out there and play better than we played last week," he said. "Our expectations anytime we go out and play in our stadium is to win."
***Chizik said Onterio McCalebb has been their most consistent running back so far. He said they will run him outside or inside. He said Tre Mason and Mike Blakely have both done some good things and need to continue to improve.
***Chizik said Kenny Hilliard and LSU's other tailbacks are physical and tough to tackle. He said they have a very good OL.
