Ole Miss-LSU football preview, keys to the game
These are trying times for Ole Miss, which faces the dual distraction of scandal and investigation, and can’t go to a bowl game because of self-imposed sanctions it hopes will be enough in the eyes of the NCAA. But the Rebels have perhaps been more competitive than anticipated on the field, last week completely dismantling a Vanderbilt team that had beaten a ranked opponent only a few weeks ago.
Ole Miss is still going to have to fight to keep its head above water, but the fact that the Rebels are at .500 with Alabama and Auburn behind them leads you to believe this team isn’t going to quit on interim coach Matt Luke as some initially feared. Quarterback Shea Patterson has been fantastic. It all adds some intrigue to the Rebels’ contest Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium against No. 24 LSU.
This is Ole Miss’ biggest remaining home game, and in a year with no postseason, it could feel like the Super Bowl in Oxford. Which Ole Miss do we get — the one that ran roughshod over Vanderbilt, or the one that bowed fairly meekly at Cal? Which LSU team do we get — the one that rallied in the second half against Auburn, or the one that lost to Troy and was blown out at Mississippi State?
The right combination makes this a real ballgame, something that’s reflected in the rather narrow Vegas spread. Led by Patterson behind center, the Rebels have a nice array of offensive skill-position players, but they’ve been contained against Top 25 opponents thus far. LSU played like the team everyone expected all season in the second half against Auburn, but is this Tigers renaissance for real? Nobody knows. Oxford should be jacked to the hilt for this one, with the Rebels offense keeping them in the game against Jekyll-and-Hyde LSU. It might not be enough for an upset. But it should be enough to offer another reminder that Ole Miss isn’t going to quit.
Prediction: LSU 35, Ole Miss 30 — David Caraviello
Ole Miss is not a good football team. You don’t host LSU ranked 116th in the nation in scoring defense and 120th in rushing offense and expect to win. This isn’t to say Ole Miss doesn’t have redeemable qualities. Quarterback Shea Patterson is a beast and should be counted on for 2 or 3 touchdowns on his own, even if they come in garbage time.
