It was the Derrius Guice show on Saturday night in Oxford, Miss., as the LSU tailback and the Tigers stampeded their way to a 40-24 win over Ole Miss.
The junior fell shy of his career-high for rushing by nine yards with 276 on the ground.
The one-sided victory propels the No. 24 Tigers to 6-2 (3-1 SEC) on the year and eases the tension on coach Ed Orgeron.
Despite the win, the Tigers faithful couldn’t help but look ahead to facing No. 1 Alabama after a bye week. That, and LSU could use some better tackling.
