Auburn and LSU have a lot in common heading into the 2016 Tiger Bowl matchup Saturday evening.
Auburn defensive coordinator Kevin Steele was on LSU head coach Les Miles’ staff last year. Likewise, former Auburn quarterback Dameyune Craig left Gus Malzahn’s staff at his alma mater for the wide receiver coach job at LSU this offseason.
The two sets of Tigers also have pressure on them to get a major SEC West win Saturday and reignite their inconsistent offenses. LSU relied on star running back Leonard Fournette in a lopsided win over Auburn last year, but the hosts from the Plains defeated the Bayou Bengals, 41-7, in their last matchup at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
