The LSU Tigers are taking care of business just like a No. 1 team should do against team like Ole Miss. At halftime, the Tigers lead the Rebels, 35-3.
Right from the very start, Ole Miss put itself down early. Zack Stoudt threw an interception just 28 seconds into the game, a 46-yard pick-six. Then with less than seven minutes left in the first quarter, Kenny Hilliard and Jordan Jefferson each found the end zone for a score in less than two minutes. Hilliard pounded the ball in from the one-yard line while Jefferson found Russell Shepard for a 22-yard touchdown. A strip sack of Stoudt by Ron Brooks resulted in the quick second touchdown.
In the second quarter, Ole Miss' Barry Brunetti lost two yards and the ball on a rush attempt, resulting in LSU's Kevin Minter picking the ball up in the end zone for the score. Spencer Ware added a 35-yard touchdown for the Tigers to go up, 35-0, before Ole Miss kicker Bryson Rose kicked a field goal with about a minute left in the half.
