Let's consider this a social experiment. Andy Kennedy's Ole Miss Rebels return to Oxford from a loss in Knoxville and face one of the programs most bitter rivals in the LSU Tigers. Ole Miss was absolutely embarrassed the last time they played LSU, losing by 20 in Baton Rouge, and will have revenge, as well as another SEC win, on their mind. LSU, looking to take advantage of a weak Southeastern Conference, will look to this as an opportunity to get a road win and boost their NCAA tournament resume.
Will Ole Miss fans fill the Tad Pad, or will they, largely, take their cheering and drinking skills to Swayze Field to watch Ole Miss play a baseball team from a North Carolina directional school? Will more people comment on the basketball game or baseball game on this here Cup? Will anyone care or notice, win or lose?
I think we all know the answers.
LSU Tigers (17-10, 7-6 SEC) vs. Ole Miss Rebels (15-12, 5-8 SEC)
