The LSU Tigers had a real opportunity to ruin the Ole Miss Rebels shot at a New Years Six bowl.
Unfortunately, after the first quarter, it was all Rebels on this Saturday at the Grove. The Tigers were down 17-7 at halftime and then 31-10 late in the fourth quarter. Garrett Nussmeier came into the game and led the team to two scoring drives after Johnson was pulled from the game.
Now LSU will take their off week and prepare for a matchup with the No. 4 Alabama Crimson Tide on Nov. 6 in Tuscaloosa. It will be the final matchup between Ed Orgeron and Nick Saban as the LSU and Alabama head coaches. The Tigers won the last game against the Tide in Tuscaloosa.
Before we get to the game in two weeks, we review what went wrong in Oxford, Mississippi.
