Ole Miss seniors honored
By Edward Aschoff
OXFORD, Miss. -- Prior to Saturday's game with No. 1 LSU, 13 Ole Miss seniors were honored before their final home game.
Thirteen seniors tells the story of Ole Miss' depth issues during Houston Nutt's tenure.
Things have picked up in the stands as it looks like it's a packed house inside Vaught-Hemingway. The north end zone stands are covered with purple-and-yellow attire. There must have been quite the LSU caravan to Oxford Friday. It looks like there might be more LSU fans than Ole Miss fans, but the Ole Miss fans were rocking during pregame.
With all the wackiness going on in the SEC this weekend, the Ole Miss fans might be feeling better about their chances against the best team in the country.
Regardless, they are having fun down there.
Fans erupted with the traditional "Hotty Toddy" chant led by St. Louis Cardinals pitcher, and Ole Miss Alum, Lance Lynn via the video board before kickoff.
Also, LSU's T-Bob Hebert isn't expected to start at left guard, but is healthy and will play.
