Today's big home game vs. Auburn is going quite well for LSU so far. Midway through the second quarter, star running back Leonard Fournette already has 116 yards on just 11 carries, and LSU leads 14-0, while Auburn's offense is in a bit of disarray. One of the best and most popular LSU athletes ever is back on campus for the event as well. Former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal is in Death Valley and has to be thrilled with the game so far.

The Diesel is getting treated to a good one at his alma mater. LSU has a chance to jump out to a 2-0 record in the SEC West if they hold on to win today. Of course, there is a ton of time left.
