Auburn vs. LSU College Football Betting

Auburn Tigers College Football Betting

When the LSU Tigers hired Brian Kelly, they made a major upgrade. Kelly made the Notre Dame Fighting Irish a perennial College Football Playoff contender. Since his departure, there has been a noticeable decline in quality control at Notre Dame. Kelly wanted a job like LSU because he grew tired of the Notre Dame academic red tape. At LSU, Kelly knows he can bring in any player he wants. By contrast, the Auburn Tigers have seen their recruiting efforts fall through the floor. Auburn coach Bryan Harsin was an out-of-the-box hire. And he has proven to be an extremely poor fit.
