LSU interim head coach Ed Orgeron said he’s learned much from his three seasons as head coach at Ole Miss.

Orgeron was fired after winning only 10 of 35 games. He won only 3 of 24 SEC games as head coach of the Rebels. Orgeron faces his former team Saturday at 8 pm at Tiger Stadium. He said the game isn’t about him, but his team.

Orgeron is 2-0 after taking over for head coach Les Miles.

Here’s what Orgeron said Monday about his time at Ole Miss.

Ole Miss won last season 38-17 in Oxford, only intensifying speculation that then LSU head coach Les Miles was on the hot seat.

This season, Ole Miss has struggled. The Rebels are 1-2 in the SEC, 3-3 overall.

Ole Miss has allowed 30.3 points per game, 87th in the Football Bowl Subdivision. LSU is fourth in the nation in scoring defense, allowing only 14 points a game.

Orgeron's take?

"Let's just see," said Orgeron. "I think they have a stiffer schedule than we have."

LSU has won the last three meetings in Baton Rouge, but all by a touchdown or less.

Kickoff is 8 pm.
