GameDay Timeline: Football vs. Auburn

BATON ROUGE – One of the weekend’s biggest college football games will take place on Saturday afternoon in Tiger Stadium when 13th-ranked LSU hosts No. 18 Auburn at 2:30 in a nationally televised contest on CBS.

But long before LSU and Auburn kickoff, there will be plenty of other activities taking place across the LSU campus beginning with SEC Network’s traveling pregame show, SEC Nation, which will be located in the grass lot next to Walkon’s at the corner of Burbank and Nicholson Drive.
