There are not nearly as many SEC West implications as everyone thought a couple of weeks ago, but Saturday’s showdown between No. 22 Ole Miss and No. 15 LSU is still an intriguing game.
Which team can put behind recent disappointments and come out on top? Will the rumors swirling around LSU coach Les Miles’ future affect the Tigers? How will the bye week help the Rebels?
The storylines are countless, and that’s not even taking into account that these teams don’t exactly like each other. It should make for a fun game on a weekend with relatively few marquee matchups across the SEC.
