Week 12 – Nov. 21: Home vs. LSU, Vaught-Hemingway Stadium Oxford, Mississippi

After the off week, the Rebels are rejuvenated and coached up to defeat the LSU Tigers in 2015. This game will be do or die for both teams as they try to catch Alabama at the top of the SEC West.

Due to the nature of the highly competitive conference, this game only further damages either teams chance of winning the West because both want to beat each other to get a late season win so badly. Both teams will likely finish second through fourth depending on how Auburn does and if Alabama losses another game besides their loss to the Rebels in week three.

Last season in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the Rebels lost a 10-7 game to the Tigers. This season, after LSU is exhausted from back-to-back games against Alabama and Arkansas the Rebels turn the tables on another SEC West foe for the second straight week.

The Rebels will win this game in a close matchup. Most SEC games the Rebels play in 2015 will be decided by 10 points or less. Give some credit to the special teams units on this Rebels team for giving them chances to win games week after week.

Record after week 12: 9-2
