Trends: The series record is 4-3 LSU’s way over the last seven games. … Ole Miss has lost four of the last five.

Notes: One win its last two games would give Ole Miss back-to-back seasons with winning SEC records for the first time since the 1989-1990 seasons. … Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell is on a school-record streak of five games with at least 100 receiving yards. He has at least one touchdown in each of those games, also a school record. … Kicker Gary Wunderlich has hit 15-of-18 field goals and has only one miss between 30 and 49 yards. … QB Chad Kelly leads the SEC in passing yards, total offense and touchdown passes.

Summing it up: Our coaches do a good job of getting everybody to focus week to week. No matter if we win by 50 or we lose by 50 we always come back the next week with a fresh start and focus in on the opponent. From a mental standpoint everybody is excited and looking forward to this game.Ole Miss LB C.J. Johnson

Prediction: Ole Miss 31, LSU 30

    K-B you out there, positive waves generate in the mind of this once Old Rebel; Ole Miss could surprise many in the national sports media/arena (ESPN),ABC, CBS by winning the remaining SEC games and Alabama losing to Auburn – Ole Miss SEC West (6-2)t winner and to meet Florida in the Championship game at Atlanta. Florida a very good defense, but shabby and weak offense, So Rebels i believe has an advantage here. they lost today to LSU and all this is nonsense…
