HOOVER, AL (WAFB) - Auburn senior cornerback Jonathan Jones sounded very confident when he talked about his team's chances of breaking a string of losses in LSU's Tiger Stadium that dates back to 1999, when Gerry DiNardo was on his way out and lost to Tommy Tuberville 41-7.
Jones and his Tigers play their 2015 SEC opener in Baton Rouge on September 19. Last year, those Tigers drubbed freshman quarterback Brandon Harris and LSU at Jordan-Hare in Auburn by the same 41-7 score.
"It was kind of difficult for him to come into our stadium and exceed, but I'm looking forward to this year, going down there and playing and coming out with a victory," Jones said on the first day of SEC Media Days. "I don't think we've won in a long time down there, so I'm definitely looking forward to going down there and coming out with a victory."
When asked about the SEC's constant expansion of football stadiums, Jones admitted "every venue has a great atmosphere," but stopped short of including Death Valley, when trying to pick that one road game that's especially tough for SEC visitors to make.
"Mississippi State has the cow bells and if you play down there, you'll hear cow bells for three days once you leave," Jones insisted.
Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama were the other road venues in the SEC that made Jones' list of places that play a role of intimidating opponents.
LSU vs. Auburn will air on CBS at 2:30 p.m.
