Last season, the Ole Miss game would have been the No. 1 trap game for the Tigers.
This year, eh, not so much. The reason for that is the gained respect for the Rebels. After one of the best recruiting classes in the nation and an opening-weekend win at Vanderbilt, LSU won't be overlooking Ole Miss.
Still, even with those "Hotty Toddy" chants growing in number, Ole Miss is not in the upper echelon of the SEC West.
With a quarterback that's primarily a better runner than he is passer, the Rebels' passing game is far from spectacular with Bo Wallace manning the position.
The secondary looks to be a weakness once again as well, with Ole Miss allowing 300 passing yards to Vanderbilt's new starting quarterback, Austyn Carta-Samuels.
Having said all of that, this team is still capable of making a run in the SEC West. Immense talent is spread throughout the field when Ole Miss plays, but because of a top-heavy schedule, LSU could play an Ole Miss team that sports three or four losses.
To avoid being upset, the Tigers can't read too far into that loss column.
