LSU-Ole Miss game preview

LSU surprised oddsmakers everywhere last Saturday with a comeback 27-23 victory over then-No. 10 Auburn. The Tigers trailed by as many as 20 points in the second quarter but came back in the second half thanks to stifling defense and strong special teams performances from punt returner DJ Chark, kicker Connor Culp and gunner Russell Gage.

The Tigers have now defeated back-to-back ranked SEC opponents and are touchdown favorites to defeat Ole Miss. The Rebels snapped a three-game losing streak last weekend by blowing out Vanderbilt 57-35.

This game should be a matchup of strength versus strength. The Tigers’ No. 14 pass defense is hot as ever right now after breaking up 11 passes against Auburn. And while Jarrett Stidham was one kind of test, Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson is unlike any other in the SEC. Patterson has led Ole Miss to the No. 9 passing attack in the FBS and leads the SEC in passing touchdowns, yards per game, completions, completion percentage and pass attempts.

On the other side, healthy running back play will be a huge advantage for LSU. Ole Miss has the No. 118 rush defense in college football. Last year, the Tigers rushed for 311 yards and four touchdowns versus Ole Miss. Running back Derrius Guice has been limited the last two weeks and didn’t play three weeks ago as he recovers from a tweaked knee.
