As the LSU head coach, former Ole Miss head coach Ed Orgeron has never lost to his former team.

Orgeron hopes to make it four in a row for the top ranked Tigers over the Rebels Saturday night in Oxford, Mississippi. Kickoff is at 6:05 pm. The game will be televised nationally.

The two teams play for the Magnolia Bowl trophy, a trophy Ole Miss last won in Oxford in 2015.

LSU won last year 45-16 in Baton Rouge.

Ed Orgeron said his players have moved on from last Saturday’s win at Alabama. And, the Tigers, 21.5 point favorites, hope to run their record to 10-0 for this season. LSU is aiming for its 11th straight victory.
