Close win over Auburn is No. 3 LSU's reality check

Zach Mettenberger smartly qualified his attempt to place perspective on LSU's narrow win over Auburn.

The junior quarterback, in his first year as a starter, called Saturday night's 12-10 win "the biggest game of my life so far."

The key words in Mettenberger's appraisal were "so far." Much bigger games are coming soon for the Tigers, who are 4-0 but dropped a spot to No. 3 Sunday in The Associated Press Top 25.

LSU plays Towson this week before starting an imposing string of Southeastern Conference games on Oct. 6 at Florida. The Tigers then play South Carolina, Texas A&M, Alabama and Mississippi State.

Coach Les Miles says LSU must improve after struggling offensively against Auburn, which has an overtime victory over Louisiana-Monroe as its only win.
