College Football Week 12: Ole Miss At #8 LSU
|Ole Miss missed out on a chance to become bowl eligible last week when it allowed a game-winning touchdown to Vanderbilt in the final week. Now the Rebels, 5-5, will have to upset LSU or in-state rival Mississippi State to reach the postseason.||Coaching||LSU did pretty well against its incredible difficult five-game stretch, going 3-2. Now try telling that to an LSU fan.|
|The Rebels had great success through the air last week but ran for a measly 55 yards on 40 carries. Running against LSU won’t be easy but Ole Miss must try to find some balance.||Offense||Zach Mettenberger and the LSU offense have been steadily improving. He threw for 373 yards and two scores last week.|
|The defense has been inconsistent this season; if it can slow down the Tigers on the ground it has a chance.||Defense||Nothing has changed about this unit all season—it is one of the best in the country. It says something that the team that scored the most points against the Tigers this season was Towson (22).|
|The Rebels are 92nd overall in Football Outsiders’ special teams rankings.||Special Teams||The Tigers fumbled a punt last week; their special teams have taken a step back from last year but are still pretty good.|
The winner is
