Greatest hits in the SEC: Week 12 edition
The season is winding down, but the hits are only getting better. Many of these plays came from Ole Miss-LSU, arguably the biggest game on this week’s SEC schedule. Here are the greatest hits of Week 12:
Down goes Les Miles
It’s been a really bad few weeks for Les Miles. His job is on the line, his team has lost three consecutive games and then this happened.

Fullback Bry’Kiethon Mouton was drilled out of bounds, but the bigger hit came when he undercut an observant Miles along the sideline. Miles was fortunately able to get up and seemed fine afterward, but that moment almost added injury to what’s been an insulting week of rumors.
LSU WR Travin Dural goes for a ride
LSU wideout Travin Dural attempted to reel in a high pass from quarterback Brandon Harris in the end zone. He didn’t catch the ball. Instead, he went for a wild ride.

Dural got caught up in the air with Ole Miss defensive back Kendarius Webster, who made sure to give Dural a bumpy landing. Webster flipped Dural like a WWE wrestler would as he’s thrown off the ropes. Dural left the game with a right hamstring injury.
Chad Kelly scores an acrobatic touchdown
Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly must have been in gymnastics as a kid. Kelly somersaulted his way across the goal line on an 11-yard touchdown run against the Tigers after a big collision with two LSU defenders.

What’s more amazing is that Kelly managed to get the ball across the goal line before his elbow or forearm hit the ground. The play was reviewed and ultimately ruled a touchdown. That will be one of Kelly’s more memorable touchdowns of his collegiate career.
Auburn’s Tray Matthews lays out a poor Idaho player
This weekend’s lone submission outside of the LSU-Ole Miss game comes from Auburn. Defensive back Tray Matthews did a pretty decent job as a gunner on this punt return. He flew down the field and stuck the Idaho punt returner.

The ground might still be shaking from that seismic collision.
