in

BATON ROUGE (AP) — The last two times LSU and Auburn met, special teams figured prominently.
Now 12th-ranked LSU is hoping noticeable improvements in its kicking game can tip the balance at No. 7 Auburn at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
New kicker Cole Tracy, a graduate transfer from Division II Assumption College, already has booted two field goals of 50 yards or more and has yet to miss any of his five attempts. Avery Atkins, a freshman walk-on from Auburn High School in Alabama, has recorded touchbacks on 11 of 13 kickoffs.

Note: This piece contains a large amount of first-person pronouns, something your author isn’t too comfortable with. There’s no way around it in this case. My apologies.
It wasn’t until after my “isms” cost me another job that I finally got the one I’d always wanted.
