LSU Beats Ole Miss, Gets Ready For Arkansas
The LSU Tigers (9-2, 5-2) will end their season Friday at Arkansas (4-7, 2-5).
The Razorbacks have not won much but they can still move the ball. The team has given the Tigers problems from time to time over the years in games played in Arkansas.
If the Tigers win, they will still have a shot at winding up in a BCS bowl game. And LSU fans will love this: if Auburn beats Alabama and Texas A&M beats Missouri, LSU will wind up in a three-way tie in the SEC West. The LSU Tigers will hold the tiebreakers to go to the conference title game against Georgia in Atlanta.
If all goes in LSU's favor, they might find themselves on their way back into the BCS title game for a second straight season.
It sounds crazy, but there's a precedent. It also happened at the end of the 2007 season, when LSU had two losses but won the BCS title game against Ohio State.
LSU coach Les Miles said, "We're going to spend six days in between now and the next game in pass coverage, this is the kind of film that will be truly beneficial to our secondary."
LSU defeated Ole Miss Saturday 41-35.
"Ole Miss came out, they were feeling a rivalry and the tradition," LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery said. "They probably came out and probably played the best game of their life."
For three weeks in a row, LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger did a fantastic job of moving the ball in the air. He completed 22 of 37 passes for 282 yards.
Les Miles said, "He's functioning our offense. He's doing the things we ask him to do. We expect him to play big in games like this, we threw the football pretty well and stayed with it."
