After being shut out in the first half, LSU has been able to respond and put some points on the board, but Ole Miss has responded in kind. In large part due to three Zach Mettenberger interceptions and a passing game led by Bo Wallace, the Rebels were able to take a 10-0 lead into the half. Both teams came out firing in the second half and were able to put two touchdowns on the board a piece, making it 24-14 heading into the fourth.
In a weekend filled with upsets, many of which have happened in the SEC including Texas A&M, Georgia, and South Carolina, LSU has the opportunity to keep pace with Alabama in the SEC West. If they lose, the Tide have only Auburn a game behind them, a team they will see in the Iron Bowl at the end of the year. A big comeback could be huge for Mettenberger and this LSU offense in building momentum for the rest of the season.
A win for Ole Miss would be huge for what Hugh Freeze is trying to build there. He has made an impact in recruiting, but this would be a potential program building win that could help to establish them as an up and coming SEC power. This could end up going down to the wire.
