LSU was motivated by antics of Auburn in '99.
Auburn stomped on the midfield logo during warmups, drawing an unsportsmanlike penalty and allowed LSU to kickoff from midfield to start the game. LSU ran an onside kick and recovered, which along with Michael Clayton's hit on Roderick Hood a few minutes later set the tone.
Auburn's Damon Duval got into an altercation with two members of the LSU marching band during the halftime performance as Auburn special teams appeared to have prematurely started warmups. Duval didn't make another field goal for the rest of the game.
Final Score: LSU 27, Auburn 14
