Ole Miss is not going to upset LSU tonight. Sure, we all kind of knew that, but the Tigers have set out early to make sure there's no doubt, in the form of a 28-0 lead shortly after the first quarter.
Already, the Bayou Bengals have 121 yards of total offense. Jordan Jefferson is 3-of-3 for 57 yards and a touchdown. He also has 23 yards rushing on three carries. The other three touchdowns are from a pick-six by Ron Brooks, a one-yard touchdown run by Kenny Hilliard and a fumble in the end zone.
Things have not gone as well for Ole Miss. The Rebels have averaged 2.5 yards a carry on the ground, and Zac Stoudt gave way to Barry Brunetti after going 3-of-8 for 17 yards with the interception and a fumble that set up one of the Tigers' touchdowns. Not that that's doing much good; one of LSU's touchdowns came on a bizarre fumble when Brunetti tried to hand the ball off but Philander Moore got in the way. Really.
