LSU's attempt to pull off a last-second victory failed as Auburn's kicker hit six field goals to beat the Tigers, 18-13, in Jordan-Hare Stadium.
The Bayou Bengals started to celebrate as quarterback Danny Etling threw a 15-yard pass to D.J. Chark in the end zone. However, officials ruled that time had expired before Etling made the scoring play.
LSU's offense was held to 338 as Etling was 15 of 27 with 118 yards passing and one touchdown pass to Foster Moreau in the first quarter. Heisman hopeful and sophomore running back Leonard Fournette was held to only 101 yards on 16 carries.
Auburn quarterback Sean White completed 19 of 26 passes for 234 yards, but it was kicker Daniel Carson who got the team's 18 points. His longest kick being made from mid-field.
"We got to just keep pushing and keep fighting because you never know who is going to lose, and we're still in the hunt. We lost one conference game and we lost one non-conference game so we still got a chance," said LSU defensive end Arden Key.
"You know anybody that wants to be down on us after this, then they got other issues. Because we played so hard and you know every single second we were out there competing," Etling said.
Auburn linebacker Tre' Williams was ejected from the game for targeting Etling in the second quarter.
LSU (2-2, 1-1 SEC) takes on Missouri next in a home game Saturday. This will be the first time the two Tiger teams have faced off as SEC rivals.
