Ole Miss Loses to L.S.U. 10-7 Over the Weekend

The Ole Miss football team will look to bounce back into the win column Saturday night at home against Auburn.

The Rebels suffered a tough loss this past Saturday night at L.S.U. Bo Wallace picked the worst possible moment to turn into Bad Bo. With Ole Miss in position to attempt a game tying field goal, the Rebels’ quarterback decided to throw deep, a decision that left Ole Miss fans and Bo’s head coach in disbelief.

Ole Miss Head Coach, Hugh Freeze, says, "I think Bo would tell you we would take the flat throw or throw it out of bounds or try a field goal. He must have thought he had a shot at the touchdown.”

The defense kept the Rebels in the game, forcing four turnovers, another solid night from one of the best defensive units in the country. Speaking of defense, the L.S.U. defense made it a long night for the Ole Miss offense. Ole Miss Running Back, Jaylen Walton, says, "We could never get a big play started to give us confidence. L.S.U. got a great defense. They played more, 60 minutes more than us."

Late in the 4th quarter, with Ole Miss leading 7 to 3, L.S.U. quarterback, Anthony Jennings, hit Logan Stokes for the game winning touchdown. L.S.U. won the game 10 to 7, much to the delight of the 102,000 fans at Tiger Stadium.

The perfect season for Ole Miss died in Death Valley after the Rebels made a controversial decision not to attempt a game tying field goal and then the L.S.U. defense came up with the play of the night. Ole Miss Offensive Lineman, Justin Bell, says, "In a game, you make decisions, and our decision was to try and lesson the yardage to get our kicker in a better position, but that happens in this game."

Ole Miss now has a record of 7 wins and 1 loss this season. The Rebels are 4-1 in the S.E.C. If Ole Miss wins the remaining conference games on the schedule, they will earn a spot in the S.E.C. Championship Game. The Rebels will need Good Bo to show up for that to happen.
