Why LSU Will Win

Ole Miss has the SEC’s worst pass defense.

Thanks for playing.

The Rebels were able to hold up a wee bit lately against Texas A&M and New Mexico State, but they gave up 340 yards to Bo Nix in the loss to Auburn, were hammered by Cal for 373 yards – two passing games that shouldn’t be hitting for 300 yards against anyone – and have allowed 300 yards or more in six of the last nine games.

The Joe Burrow machine just doesn’t stop, throwing for 275 yards or more in every game, 320 yards or more in seven games, and he keeps getting better and better. He’s getting time, he’s connecting on 79% of his passes, and the production is relentless.

The consistent scoring forces offenses to press, it makes them scramble, and it forces them to start bombing away, and that’s not what Ole Miss does. However …

Why Ole Miss Will Win

The Ole Miss running game might just be the antidote to what LSU is doing.

The Tigers are acting a bit like they’ve already won it all. The Alabama win was amazing, but the celebration was a wee bit over the top considering there’s still – most likely – an SEC Championship to play, and it’s quite possible the Tide and Tigers could meet again in the College Football Playoff.

The team might been for a massive letdown, and that’s the type of thing that could get hammered home against a Rich Rodriguez offense.

The Ole Miss offensive coordinator has the running game rocking. QB John Rhys Plumlee has made massive difference for a ground attack that’s rushed for 200 yards or more in five of the last six games.

The passing game might not be there to keep up the pace, but LSU’s run defense hasn’t dealt with anything like this attack. It struggled when powered on by Najee Harris last week in Tuscaloosa, and now it’s about to deal with the speed and precision of the Rebel O.

What’s Going To Happen

Don’t be stunned if Ole Miss keeps this interesting for more than a half.

The Rebel running game isn’t exactly a curveball, but it’s just effective enough to potentially rip off yards and plays in chunks to counterbalance the LSU offense.

But in the end, the Ole Miss secondary is going to be ripped to shreds.

Burrow will continue to be Burrow, will hit home run after home run against the miserable pass defense, and the No. 1 team will take one step closer to the SEC Championship.
