The 12th-ranked LSU Tigers stormed back to score a 22-21 SEC road upset of the No. 7 Auburn Tigers on Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Alabama.

Auburn scored 21 straight points from late in the second quarter through early in the third. LSU’s offense, which went dormant after an early touchdown from Clyde Edwards-Helaire, suddenly came back to life in the fourth courtesy of a 71-yard TD reception by Derrick Dillon.

The visitors capped the comeback triumph with a game-winning field goal by Cole Tracy as time expired.

What’s Next?

Auburn will continue its stretch of four consecutive home games when it welcomes the SEC rival Arkansas Razorbacks to Jordan-Hare Stadium next Saturday.

LSU is also back on the field next Saturday when it returns to Tiger Stadium for a clash with the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs out of Conference USA.
