Oxford was bustling today from the tailgating to the Eli Manning jersey retirement at halftime. Today everything just went Ole Miss's way, as they beat LSU 31-17. This was the first game for the Tigers since finding out that Coach O won't be returning next year. Even a banged-up Matt Corral was not enough for the Tigers to take out the rebels today in Oxford.

LSU tried to put forward a fight winning the first quarter 7-0; however, once the second quarter came around that fight was all but gone. Ole Miss then won the next two quarters 17-0 and 14-0. LSU scored 10 meaningless points in garbage time to solidify the loss. LSU put up a measly 77 yards on 35 carries. Through the air wasn't much better as Max Johnson and Garrett Nussmeier combined for 249 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception.

On defense, the Tigers struggled to contain the rushing offense of the Rebels, which accumulated 266 yards and 3 touchdowns. Even banged up Matt Corral managed to produce a stat line of 18/23 with 185 yards and 1 touchdown.

This game was sloppy from an execution standpoint for the Rebels; however, a win is a win. The Rebels now move to 6-1, while LSU falls to 4-4. The Tigers have a much-needed week off to prepare for the juggernaut that is Alabama. LSU will play Alabama in Tuscaloosa on Saturday, November 6th.
