Auburn–LSU Football Rivalry - Miscellaneous


From 2000 to 2007, the home team won eight straight games. (Immediately before then, the visiting team had won four straight, from 1996 to 1999.)

The 2006 game was the lowest scoring contest between the two schools since 1935, when LSU defeated Auburn 6-0 in Baton Rouge.

The winning squad pitched a shutout 11 of the first 13 games to start the series. Since then, neither team has been shutout.

LSU leads the overall series 25–20–1. LSU leads the series in games played in Baton Rouge and Montgomery, Alabama, with a 15–5–1 and 2–0 record, respectively. Auburn leads for games played at Jordan-Hare Stadium (10–6), Birmingham, Alabama (3–2), and Mobile, Alabama (2–0). The rivalry between Auburn and LSU has developed only since the expansion of the SEC in 1992. Prior to then, the two teams played each other irregularly. When the SEC expanded, Auburn and LSU were placed in the Western Division conference, along with Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and new conference member Arkansas. As part of the conference’s realignment, division members now play all five opponents within their division every season, thus beginning the annual match-ups between Auburn and LSU. While Auburn lost annual rivalries with Tennessee and later Florida due to the SEC’s expansion and realignment, the LSU game has quickly become a heated and highly anticipated rivalry for both teams. For Auburn, the intensity of the LSU rivalry is surpassed by only the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry with Georgia and the Iron Bowl rivalry with Alabama.

Due to the 2001 terrorist attacks, the game was moved to December 1. This marked the first time since 1947 - when the Alabama legislature forced a game between the two - that Auburn played a team after Alabama in the Iron Bowl during the regular season. For LSU, the game marked the first time since 1991 that the Tigers played a team other than Arkansas as the final game of the regular season. Prior to Arkansas joining the SEC, LSU traditionally closed its season against the in-state rival Tulane Green Wave. However, with the Florida-Tennessee game also having to move to that particular weekend due to the terrorist attacks, members of the news media joked that a silver lining on the break-up of the traditional season-finale rivalry games was that the SEC now had a rare, defacto semifinal playoff round to go with its conference championship game, because the winners of both the Auburn-LSU and Florida-Tennessee games would advance to the SEC's title game. LSU and Tennessee won that weekend.

Since becoming permanent SEC opponents in 1992, the majority of the series has been played in September. Only seven times have games been scheduled in October (2002, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011), with Auburn winning two (2002, 2010) and LSU winning five (2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011). Generally speaking, games in Baton Rouge tend to be in October, while games in Auburn have been in September.
