The Ole Miss Rebels went into the Tigers Den at Death Valley to face LSU in the rain. The Tigers took a 28 to 6 advantage into the locker room at the half.

Ole Miss (3-1) jumped on the scoreboard first off the boot of Luke Logan on a 30-yard field goal.

LSU quickly answered with 28 unanswered points started by a 21-yard pass connection by Joe Burrow to wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase for the first touchdown. In the closing minute of the first quarter, the Tigers running back Nick Brossette found paydirt from four yards out.

In the second quarter, LSU added two more touchdowns—one on the ground and one in the air to go up 28-3. LSU’s defense would not allow the Rebels to score until the closing seconds of the half as Logan hit a 17-yarder.

The Rebels senior quarterback Jordan Ta’amu passed for yards 118 in the half with an interception. Scottie Phillips carried the ball six times for a total of 43 yards.

Burrow passed for 194 yards and two touchdowns in the half.

Ole Miss rushed for a total of 41 yards and in the air for 116 yards prior to the second half. The Tigers offense had a total of 332 yards.
