Fresh off a 22-point trouncing of Vanderbilt, Ole Miss find themselves the happy recipients of Ed Orgeron’s LSU Tigers in Vaught-Hemingway on Saturday evening. At 5-2, COACHO’s outfit may own a record that belies how good they really are. The Tigers own a 24-21 loss to Troy, and a 37-7 shellacking at the hands of Mississippi State.
Ole Miss is in no better a situation. Smarting after back-to-back losses to Alabama and Auburn, the Rebs came out and fired a howitzer straight into Derek Mason and Vanderbilt’s faces, popping off a 57-35 win that certainly felt refreshing at the time. That Ole Miss should show its best self against Vanderbilt’s horrible defense and inept offense shouldn’t be surprising, of course, but it perhaps instilled like a sense of hope for this hopeless season.
I’ll refrain from making a prediction for how this thing is gonna go down, but I will say that if Ole Miss can build on the successes of last weekend, they’ve got a puncher’s chance to surprise folks on Saturday night.
