This is probably the biggest game in college football up till now. They two teams are pretty even. LSU has the better offense with Joe Burrow at QB probably the best signal caller in the nation. Auburn has the better defense of the two. When two teams are even you go with the home team. In this case LSU has one of the best home field advantages in the nation. LSU should win a close one.
