AUBURN, Alabama (AP) – Cole Tracy scored a 42-yard field-go goal in the final game to beat LSU 12 on Saturday in the Southeast Conference's opening game 22-21 over number 7 Auburn to bring.
Joe Burrow led the LSU (3: 0) in the final minutes with Clutch games and two passes against Auburn (2-1). This brought Tracy's field goal to the center and sent LSU players to the field to celebrate.
Burrow hit Derrick Dillon over the outstretched arms of Auburn linebacker Deshaun Davis for a 71-yard touchdown strike with 8:18 left. Burrow's two-point attempt failed and Auburn rose to 21:19.
The defense of the LSU held another chance to stay at 5:38. The result was a 14-play, 52-yard ride. A pass interference call against Jeremiah Dinson on Third-and-11 kept the ride alive. Then Burrow hit Stephen Sullivan for 9 yards on fourth and 7 to keep the offensive on the field.
Burrow held against Auburn's Jarrett Stidham. He completed 15 of 34 passes for 249 yards, with Justin Jefferson winning 97 yards on five catches.
Stidham was 16 of 28 for 198 yards and a touchdown, but threw two interceptions. JaTarvious Whitlow ran for 104 yards on 22 vehicles.
Auburn Anders Carlson missed a 52-yard field goal attempt far left with almost 13 minutes left.

Chandler Cox expects this Auburn LSU game to be bloody and intense as usual.
The H-back for No. 7 Auburn numbers, which is standard for the rivalry with No. 12 LSU and sees no reason Saturday's confrontation will be different.
"It's always hot, it's always sweaty, always bloody," said Cox. "It's one of those games that is a bloodbath, it's getting to the wire, we have to expect that."
The winner of the first major SEC-West conflict could emerge as the most likely challenger of Alabama No. 1 in a division with four top 25 teams and two others receiving votes.
Week 3 tips and predictions
Both Auburn (2-0, 0-0 Southeastern Conference) and LSU (2-0, 0-0) already have wins over teams that were in the top 10 at the time. LSU beat then-no. 8 Miami and Auburn then exceeded no. 6 Washington, followed by predictable attacks by overpowering opponents.
For Auburn the memories of the 20-0 lead of last season are still fresh. LSU won this game 27-23, and Garrett Brumfield Guard Brumfield reminded his team shortly after a win over southeastern Louisiana.
"He told us how big the game is in Auburn," said Grant Delpit. "He said that we do not take it for granted that we will win this game just because we won the first two games and he told us we have to get out because we stole one of them last year."
These games may be bloody, but they are rarely boring. The LSU's last visit to the Jordan Hare Stadium ended with an apparent touchdown that did not count because the time before the snap had expired. A day later, LSU fired coach Les Mile s and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.
Auburn is a 10-point favorite in this.
"It's a better football team than Miami, we know that," said LSU coach Ed Orgeron. "It's a big rivalry for the LSU Tigers, it's SEC play, it's physical football, it's going to do our best to beat them."
Here are some things you should know about the LSU Auburn game:
Joe Burrow of LSU and Auburn Cornerback Jamel Dean first signed with Ohio State in 2015. Burrow is a graduate transfer while Dean left after being medically disqualified from the game for knee injuries.
"I'm pretty sure if he feels like I'm feeling he's probably going to have a chip on his shoulder and he probably wants to prove to Ohio State why he should have played there," Dean said.
LSU is one of only six nationally non-revenue teams, a series that has expanded to 15 quarters. Auburn's defense has shown a strong league lead while Stidham has not lost. Auburn lost to Alabama State four times, mostly through reserves.
LSU, Auburn and Vanderbilt are tied for the SEC leadership with nine sacks. Eight Auburn defenders have taken at least one. Auburn's Big Kat Bryant and LSU's Delpit both have a pair of sacks.
HOME SWEET HOME
The home team has won 16 of the last 18 matches. Auburn was much better at Jordan-Hare and maintained a 13-game home win series that included victories over then-no. 1s Georgia and Alabama last season.
"I think that will give us a home advantage, because when we play at Jordan-Hare, we have a mindset that we will not lose at home," said Dean.
