ESPN Analyst Says The Loser Of This Game Is "Done" Saturday

There are a couple of major games taking place in the college football world this weekend, with one of them being in the SEC.

Auburn, the No. 7 team in the country, is set to host No. 12 LSU in a matchup of two undefeated teams.

ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum has weighed in on the game. He says the loser of the game will be "done."

Finebaum thinks one loss in the vaunted SEC West will be too much to overcome.

“It’s really important because, if you lose the game on either side, you’re done,” Finebaum said during an appearance on ESPN’s First Take this week. “Because you still have to play Alabama in your league. You still have to play Mississippi State, which is good. They went on the road and beat Kansas State, which isn’t a bad win. You don’t survive this and have much of a chance unless you start knocking people off.”

Finebaum is high on Auburn. He placed the Tigers inside his top five. They can't afford a loss this weekend, though.

“Last year, Auburn went to Baton Rouge and blew a 20-point lead and still was able to overcome it because they beat Georgia and Alabama,” he said. “Both games were at home. They can’t do that this year.”

Auburn and LSU are set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. E.T. on CBS.
