The LSU Tigers (6-2), who rank No. 24 in the most recent AP Poll, will look for their third straight SEC victory when the host the No. 3 Mississippi Rebels (7-0). LSU is coming off of a dominant 41-3 home victory over the Kentucky Wildcats. LSU’s offense, which is averaging 221 rushing yards per game, rolled for 303 yards and three touchdowns against Kentucky’s hapless run defense. Running back Terrence Magee rumbled for 127 yards and touchdowns while true freshman Leonard Fournette ran for 40 yards and a touchdown. LSU’s defense limited Kentucky to just 217 yards of total offense. Expect the undefeated Mississippi Rebels to present a bigger challenge for LSU’s defense. Fans will have to pay a premium if they want to see LSU hand Mississippi its first loss.
