LSU did their part by knocking off reigning national champions Alabama, 24-21. Now, the Tigers wait patiently in shadows for Auburn to slip up. It is possible, after all. Auburn still plays Georgia, then travels to Alabama before potentially going to Atlanta for the SEC Championship. Last time I checked, the SEC was the toughest conference in college football.
And LSU’s been lucky more than once this season.
With Boise State and TCU likely finishing their respective seasons undefeated, it’s almost impossible a two-loss Auburn would find their way to the national championship. Unless, of course, it came in the form of sweet, ironic vindication for 2004.
