SEC Nation announces Week 9 location
“SEC Nation” is heading to Baton Rouge.
The Week 9 location for the SEC Network’s traveling pregame show was announced on Sunday. With the LSU-Auburn the clear marquee matchup for Saturday’s SEC slate, it’s no surprise to see that Tigers great Marcus Spears and company will be onhand previewing the game.
In Week 8, both No. 2 LSU and No. 11 Auburn won their games against SEC West foes. With No. 6 Wisconsin falling to Illinois, there is a chance for this year’s Tiger Bowl to be a top-10 matchup if Associated Press Top 25 voters feel like dropping the Badgers out of the top 10.
LSU won last year’s game in Auburn 22-21. Cole Tracy kicked a 42-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the Bayou Bengals to victory. This year’s game is set to be the SEC on CBS showcase game for Week 9 with a 3:30 p.m. ET (2:30 p.m. local) kickoff.
