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.
LSU's Joe Burrow leads the SEC, averaging 346.4 yards per game. Burrow has thrown 33 TD passes this season, a school record.
Ole Miss has lost 6 games.
Their four wins came against Arkansas, Southeastern Louisiana, Vandebilt, and New Mexico State.
