Call it karma, maybe?
At Saturday’s LSU-Auburn game in Baton Rouge, the Auburn mascot was spotted on the sideline dressed up as the Troy Trojan. Troy, of course, delivered a blow to LSU two weeks earlier, defeating the Tigers 24-21 at Tiger Stadium in one of the most surprising losses for LSU in decades.

After the first half of the LSU-Auburn game, it looked like it would be a blowout win for then-No. 10 Auburn, who at one point led the then-unranked Tigers 20-0 in the second quarter.
But LSU came alive in the second half. The defense held Auburn scoreless, and receiver DJ Chark’s 75-yard punt return at the start of the fourth quarter made it a 23-21 game. Kicker Connor Culp finished the job with two crucial field goals to give LSU a huge 20-point comeback win, one that will go down in LSU history as one of the program’s most unlikely victories ever.
Auburn (still) hasn't won a game in Tiger Stadium since 1999.
