BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Saturday night the Tigers finished off the Idaho Vandals 63-14 and attention quickly turned to the Auburn Tigers, LSU's first SEC matchup and road trip. Here's a taste of "What They are Saying" about #2 LSU and Auburn:  

From OANow.com:

"I looked after we got the win. I wanted to see the reaction," Whitaker said. "And the reaction was, 'Hey, we got the win, we've got to move on.' And I think the celebration was probably the fight song in the locker room, but after that we went on to LSU."

From the Ledger Enquirer:

"I just think they're excited that they're excited that a game like this is coming back home," Chizik said. "This is why you come to Auburn, to play in great games like this."

From the Washington Post:

A 63-14 blowout of Idaho on Saturday, which helped the Tigers climb to No. 2 in the AP poll, served as the latest reminder that LSU's sideline is loaded with exceptional players waiting for their chance to shine.

From ESPN:

The Southeastern Conference rivals were ranked first and second for eight weeks during last season before eventually meeting in the BCS title game.

From CBS Sports:

The Tigers cruised to a 63-14 win over Idaho on Saturday. We might not get a true sense for how good this team is until it travels to Florida on Oct. 6. Last week's power ranking: 2. Next up: at Auburn, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (ESPN)

From AL.com:

Auburn's defense turns attention to LSU after being 'embarrassed' in Baton Rouge last year.

    With offenses becoming increasingly explosive, plugging the holes is more imperative than ever. It's no surprise Alabama and Florida top the list, but the rest of the rankings may surprise you.
