A Tough Night for Todd

Comments from Auburn quarterback Chris Todd are featured after his Tigers lost at LSU.

Baton Rouge, La.--After a tough night personally for Chris Todd and just as tough an evening for his entire team, the Auburn quarterback says he believes he will be able to bounce and so will the Auburn Tigers.

"I am fine," he said when asked about his confidence after hitting just 8-14 passes with one interception and no touchdowns in Auburn's 31-10 loss to LSU. Todd finished the night with just 47 passing yards and it was his third straight disappointing performance after getting off to a hot start this season as one of the top-rated passers in the country.

"It is frustrating when you come out here and have a loss," he said Saturday night. "You try to go back and look at all of the things and see what you need to fix. We will go back and fix our mistakes. I will go back and watch the film and try to correct all of that. We obviously want to win games. We started out hot (this season.)."

LSU's quarterback had the hot hand at Tiger Stadium as Auburn dropped its third straight game after opening the season 5-0. Next Saturday the Tigers will try to get back to their winning ways vs. Ole Miss. Jordan Jefferson hit 21-31 passes for 242 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another.

"We have to get back tomorrow and prepare again," Todd said. "We are capable of doing some great things and we still know that. It is not an issue. It is not an issue of believing in ourselves and knowing what to do. That is not the deal. We just have to come out here and play on Saturdays. We are going to go out and prepare to play another good team next week."

Commenting on what the offense needs to get out of its slump, Todd said, "I?think the biggest thing is for us to come out and make a few big plays and get things rolling and we will be just fine. I think we need to get a spark going and things will get rolling."

The Auburn senior said he was impressed with LSU's defense. "We have played against some solid teams. LSU is definitely a good team with a lot of speed and they showed us some good looks. They were definitely solid across the board."
