Ole Miss vs. LSU football 2018: Rebels boat-raced out of Baton Rouge, 45-16

Bad one.

Ole Miss went to Baton Rouge on a rainy Saturday and took a hard loss to LSU, 45-16.

The Rebels couldn’t contain the Tigers’ aerial attack — which has been spotty thus far this year — and had little to answer COACHO’s rushing attack. The Tigers’ thing was just too much.

The Rebs loss the opening toss and received the first possession, which Jordan Ta’amu ended with an interception around the 50 yard line. The ensuing Tigers possession ended with a 50-yard DOINK field goal miss, which was hilarious.

The Rebs worked their way down the field on their following possession, but they stalled out in the red zone and settled for a field goal. LSU countered with two touchdowns, and Ole Miss’ offense didn’t want the game to die.

From there, LSU imparted a lesson that Ole Miss football would be good to internalize: the Rebs ain’t that good at all. Ole Miss couldn’t move the ball, couldn’t score points, and couldn’t defend with consistency. That’s not how you win football games.

Y’all knew this, but the Rebel defense is terrible.

There was little stopping LSU’s offensive attack on the ground — which would be expected — but Ole Miss’ secondary was shredded Saturday night by a Tiger passing offense that has to this point not impressed. The Landsharks made this LSU passing unit look quite good, which only a Rebel passing unit should.

A.J. Brown, D.K. Metcalf and the rest remain very good and fun. Root for their collective and lucrative careers.
