LSU put up a season low in points, thanks in part to a strong performance from Auburn’s defense, but quarterback Joe Burrow and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire provided enough offense in the second half to secure the victory.

The victory sets up a massive showdown with No. 1 Alabama at Bryant-Denny Stadium in two weeks that will likely determine the winner of the SEC West. The Crimson Tide play Arkansas later Saturday.
