Are you a fan of chaos?
If so, tune in to the SEC West showdown between LSU and Auburn on Saturday. The two sets of Tigers were hoping for a better start to the 2016 season, and both enter Week 4 with their head coach very much on the hot seat.
The loser of this game could very well have one foot out the door, while the winner of the game has a chance to use that to rally into a survivable season.
Here is what a few national media outlets are saying about the SEC West battle:
- There’s no denying that the coaching drama will be a major storyline on Saturday night, and FOX Sports’ Stewart Mandel was asked about that very topic in his weekly mailbag piece.
- For Gus Malzahn, his future as Auburn’s head coach depends on how quickly he can get his offense up to his standards. Like ESPN’s Greg Ostendorf wrote, he better figure something out soon.
- For Les Miles, his fate this weekend will depend on how well Danny Etling and the LSU offensive line can play going up against an Auburn defense that has looked very strong this season. The Associated Press breaks it down.
