Ryan White recovered the LSU first-quarter fumble for his first career fumble recovery; it was also Ryan Smith's first career forced fumble

The 54-yard second-quarter run by LSU's Jeremy Hill was the longest rushing play against Auburn this season; the previous long entering the game was a 47-yard gain by Mississippi State's Dak Prescott. Hill's 49-yard touchdown run in the first quarter was the longest rushing touchdown against Auburn this season

Tre Mason's two third-quarter touchdowns were the 12th and 13th rushing scores of his career; he now has 15 career touchdowns at Auburn. This was the third time in Mason's career that he scored two rushing touchdowns in a game

This was the fourth 100-yard rushing game of Tre Mason's career, his first 100-yard game versus an SEC opponent. Mason is the third Auburn running back to rush for 100 yards in a game this season.

Tre Mason has moved into 26th place on Auburn's career rushing list with 1,501 yards. Rushing for 132 yards against LSU, he passed Mitzi Jackson (1,373 yards from 1973-75), Monk Gafford (1,414 yards from 1940-42), Cam Newton (1,473 yards in 2010) and Tommy Lorino (1,486 yards from 1956-58).

Steven Clark is now seventh among Auburn career punt leaders, with 166 punts for 6,664 yards. He passed Jon Kilgore (163 punts for 6,631 yards from 1962-64).

Sophomore wide receiver Ricardo Louis had a career-best five receptions for 24 yards

The third-quarter interception by Jermaine Whitehead was his second career interception, breaking Zach Mettenberger's string of 77 pass attempts without an interception. It was Auburn's fourth interception of the season, and AU's first interception in an SEC game since 2011 vs. Ole Miss (T'Sharvan Bell). Whitehead's first career interception was vs. Florida Atlantic in 2011.

Sammie Coates set a new career high with 139 yards receiving on four receptions. It is his first career 100-yard receiving game and the first for an Auburn receiver since Emory Blake vs. Georgia in 2012. He is the first Tiger other than Blake to record 100 yards receiving in a game since 2010.

Freshman wide receiver Tony Stevens recorded the first two catches of his college career. He finished with 21 yards receiving.

The 52-yard third-quarter pass completion from Nick Marshall to Sammie Coates was Marshall's third completion of 50+ yards this season; that pass was also the longest play LSU has given up this season
