Ole Miss Knocks off LSU in Stunning Upset
The No. 6 LSU Tigers suffered their first loss of the season on Saturday, falling to the unranked Ole Miss Rebels 27-24.
The Rebels put LSU in a big hole early. They took a 10-0 lead into halftime, then extended it after a 2-yard Jaylen Walton touchdown run midway through the third quarter.
The Tigers finally hit their stride a few minutes later, scoring two touchdowns in a three-minute span. But Ole Miss responded almost immediately, as Walton scampered for a 26-yard touchdown to close out the quarter.
The Tigers were able to tie the game in the fourth, and a serendipitous blocked field goal seemed to provide them with the luck they needed to escape.
However, Ole Miss refused to wilt. After a 13-play, 61-yard drive, Andrew Ritter drilled a 41-yard field goal with two seconds left to give the Rebels the 27-24 win.
With the loss, LSU drops to 6-1, and their national championship hopes are in serious jeopardy. With the season's first BCS rankings coming out Sunday night, the timing of this loss isn't great.
For Ole Miss, this serves as the elusive big-time SEC win they were looking for. The Rebels lost by three points to Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M last week.
This week, though, Hugh Freeze's crew got the upset they deserved.
