Here’s how the LSU-Ole Miss game has gone so far: Jeremiah Masoli is intercepted on his first pass of the game, setting up LSU for a touchdown on a 19-yard drive. Ole Miss returns the subsequent kickoff to midfield, then scores immediately on a 50-yard run by Brandon Bolden. LSU scores a field goal on their next drive, then Ole Miss returns another kickoff within loogie-hocking distance of the 50-yard line and scores a field goal of their own. Both teams traded punts toward the end of the first quarter, but LSU scored on a two-yard Stevan Ridley run on the second play of the second quarter to go up 17-10.
Whew! LSU’s D has stiffened up on the current Rebel drive, stopping the Rebs dead in their tracks at the Mississippi 17. Still, Ole Miss doesn’t seem all that intimidated by an LSU squad who’s in prime position for an at-large BCS bid.
