It’s been a lot of fun and games up to this point for LSU, who has started the season off right. The Tigers are sitting at 3-1 one-third of the way through the season. However, they’ll now be faced with their toughest tests yet. The Southeastern Conference is staring Brian Kelly’s team straight in the face with a plethora of Top 15 matchups on the calendar.
Before LSU takes on those teams though, a trip to Auburn awaits. The 2022 Tiger Bowl is being dubbed a trap game for the visitors. The Bayou Bengals come in as heavy favorites on the road in a place they usually struggle. As the Tigers stare a four-game winning streak in the face, they must fully focus if they want to earn some respect from around the country.
Will the Tigers be able to improve their win streak to four straight with a win on the Plains? Here is all of the information you need to know ahead of LSU’s trip to Auburn:

The 2022 Tiger Bowl has a ton of storylines surrounding it. It’s Kelly’s first SEC road game and it’s also what could be Bryan Harsin’s last game overall at Auburn. There are reunions with Koy Moore taking on his old team and revenge as Kayshon Boutte will look to silence his former teammate. On top of all of that, it’s one of the SEC’s most historically bizarre rivalry games.
LSU has gotten off to a hot start at 3-1 after rebounding from a loss to Florida State. Meanwhile, Auburn has been horrendous thus far. The Tigers barely escaped a game against Mizzou at home last week. There isn’t much belief on the Plains right now, but anything is possible when these two teams get together. Auburn has won the last two games in the series after all.
The 2022 Tiger Bowl is set to be a classic if the build-up is anything to go off.
There is no better place for it than the home of sports on television. Tune into ESPN at 6 p.m. CT to listen to Joe Tessitore and Greg McElroy bring you every bit of action from Jordan-Hare Stadium.
