Well, here we are in Week 5. Ole Miss travels to Baton Rouge for the Rebs’ annual bout with LSU, and hell knows what’s going to happen on Saturday night. Maybe the other Death Valley will just straight up explode and annihilate both teams from the SEC. That’d be kinda cool, actually.
LSU is still an unknown quantity. The Tigers own wins over a poor-ish MIami team, a weird Auburn club, and Southeast Louisiana and LA Tech. Their passing game is still an issue, but they can move the ball on the ground, which Ole Miss sucks ass at defending.
Ole Miss, for its part, sports one of the most potent offensive attacks in the country at the moment, and it’ll be interesting to watch Jordan Ta’amu, A.J. Brown and company tackle this particular yellow and black striped bear.

Both teams are 3-1, with Ole Miss sitting beneath a 62-7 shellacking at the hands of Alabama already this season. The Rebs’ defense is banged up. Three starters among the secondary are already out indefinitely. For a unit that’s failed to stop really any offense on the ground or through the air, that’s bad news, even against the refrigerator that is LSU’s offensive attack.
Saturday will be either weird or depressing. Here’s how to watch.
