Final: LSU 52, Ole Miss 3
By Edward Aschoff
OXFORD, Miss. -- LSU just keeps rolling along after a 52-3 win over Ole Miss.
This one was never in question and things spiraled out of control for Ole Miss (2-9, 0-7) less than a minute in, when LSU cornerback Ron Brooks took Zack Stoudt's pass 46 yards for a touchdown.
Ole Miss has now lost 13 straight conference games dating back to last season. This was the worst losssince a 49-0 loss to Georgia in 1974.
It was total dominance by No. 1 LSU (11-0, 7-0), who never looked ready for a letdown. It would be have been easy for the Tigers to get caught looking ahead to what should be an exciting game with rival Arkansas next week, but the Tigers came out focused and never looked sloppy.
LSU played with the attitude you'd expect a team to have against highly-ranked opponent. After a poor start against Western Kentucky last week, LSU bounced back in stellar form.
If not for a nifty 47-yard run by Ole Miss quarterback Barry Brunetti late in the second quarter, the Rebels wouldn't have come close to sniffing the end zone.
LSU is undeniably the country's best team and now Arkansas has the pleasure of trying to stop this crazy train.
Should be fun.
