Chris Todd and LSU's Kickoff Time Set

Chris Todd looked good against Southern Miss. I think he got out of rhythm a little in the 2nd half but overall it was a good performance. CTF did not show everything and to me it looked like they were really working on the pass and didn't want to do too much running the ball (though they ran some different formations and plays from last week).

The heat really wore out the AU defense and that along with the weather really got the team out of sync. 27-13 doesn't sound like the greatest score but uncharacteristic fumbles deep in USM territory left 14 points on the board along with a phantom block in the back on Robert Dunn's punt return for a TD left 7 more out there. The offense played well enough for Auburn to have 48 points and that's how I'll take Saturday.

Now he gets a real live SEC defense on the road so this will let us know what to expect from him the rest of the way. MSU has one of the best defenses in the league but they just don't get any help from their offense. I think he'll do well and bringing in Kodi every so often as a change of pace should pay dividends for the team.

Also, ESPN has officially made the LSU kickoff for 6:45pm central time. UGa @ Arizona State will be a 7pm central kickoff on ABC so that will likely be the ESPN Gameday site unfortunately. It's not official according to ESPN but look for UF @ UT to be on CBS at 2:30 with SPUAT at Arkansas to be on at 11:30.
