Fresh off a pair of big wins over SEC foes, Auburn and LSU will take the stage next week in one of Week 9's biggest games.

Auburn is 6-1, with their lone loss coming to Florida. Quarterback Bo Nix has excelled as a starter this year, and has led them to huge wins over Oregon and Texas A&M. The offense has put up 50 points or more in three of their last five games. Two of those performances were against Mississippi State and Arkansas.

LSU, meanwhile, is increasingly looking like the best team in the country, bar none. They boast two wins over top 10 teams and quarterback Joe Burrow looks like a Heisman Trophy front-runner. A win before their Week 10 bye would give them all of the momentum heading into Tuscaloosa against Alabama.

ESPN’s computer model has released its prediction for the Auburn-LSU game.

ESPN’s computer model believes that LSU has this game on lock. The computer model gives the LSU Tigers a 66.3 percent chance to win Saturday’s game.

LSU has won three of their last four against Auburn, and pulled off the road win last year.

Given how high-octane these two offenses are, this should be a fun game.

The Auburn-LSU game will be played at 3:30 p.m. EST on CBS.
