Uzomah on Tiger Stadium: "seen little kids flipping us off"

Posted: Updated:

Auburn ended its 10-game Southeastern Conference losing streak with it's 24-20 final drive win.  This week, the Tigers look to end another streak.  Auburn has not beat LSU inside Tiger Stadium since 1999.

Tight end C.J. Uzomah does not see Tiger Stadium as a friendly place.

"The strangest thing I've seen is little kids flipping us off," Uzomah said. "Like, giving us the finger.  That was something new. Like a little six-year-old just flicking us off."

It might be a different crowd, but it's the noise the rowdy bunch makes that can affect the game. Auburn is prepared for it.

"We'll put speakers out there [at practice] and turn them all the way up," Uzomah said.  "Honestly, you can't hear anything.  Your head is kind of ringing a little bit."

"It's going to be very important for every guy on the field to do their job," linebacker Jake Holland said.  "It's going to take a lot of preparation this week, a lot of film, so we can know pre-snap what's going on."

If you're wondering about the pumped in noise during practice, we're told it's a mixture of recorded crowd noise, and Alabama cheers.
