LSU defeated Auburn 21-17 in Week 5. After a loss to Florida State to open the season, Brian Kelly’s team is now 4-1.

That doesn’t mean that the game had its struggles, though, especially within the offense. LSU was shutout in the 1st quarter but scored all its points in the 2nd and 3rd stanzas. Jayden Daniels was just 8-of-20 for 80 yards and didn’t throw a touchdown but did take 16 carries for 59 yards and a score on the ground.
