No. 2 LSU is just days away from a pivotal showdown with ninth-ranked Auburn. Fortunately, it looks like they will be getting wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. back for the game.

Marshall has not played since September 21 due to a foot injury. In only four games, he's recorded 20 receptions for 304 yards and six touchdowns.

On Monday night, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron said the team feels Marshall should be good to go by Saturday.

Whenever Marshall returns, his presence just makes LSU's potent passing attack that much more dangerous. The Tigers' receiving corps is led by wideouts Justin Jefferson (48-759-9) and Ja'Marr Chase (35-626-9).

On the season, Joe Burrow has thrown for 2,484 yards and 29 touchdowns against only three interceptions. Burrow is completing a stunning 79.4% of his passes and has inserted himself into the Heisman Trophy race.

LSU and Auburn will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday from Baton Rouge. The game will be televised on CBS as the network's SEC Game of the Week.

A win for LSU and an Alabama win over Arkansas would further solidify an eventual 1 vs. 2 matchup when the two teams meet in Tuscaloosa on November 9.
