Wallace’s opportunity

In a series with LSU where there is precedent for the unexpected, Bo Wallace can write his own chapter. Wallace has steadily improved, and the LSU secondary, though ranked No. 3 nationally in pass efficiency defense, gave up 300 yards last week. In spite of guiding a one-dimensional offense that struggled to run the ball, Wallace passed for 403 yards. Unless there’s radical improvement in the Ole Miss run game — which has averaged just 1.68 yards per carry over the last three games — the Rebels will again lean on Wallace and the receivers as their primary — perhaps sole — method of moving the football. From the mother ship, Wallace’s opportunity

And, in basketball, our account of the Rebels’ 90-72 win over Coastal Carolina. Ole Miss wasn’t one-dimensional at Tad Smith last night, but much of what it got done, either by scoring or setting up teammates, was a product of junior college transfer guard Marshall Henderson.

    I believe in MIracles, My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ turned water into wine, Moses led the Hebrews across the Red Sea on dry ground and I believe it. But Ole Miss beating LSU in Baton Rouge!!!!! It would have to be one big miracle. Just when and how long back did the Rebels beat LSU in Tiger Stadium???.

    The last time Ole Miss won in Tiger Stadium was 2008. The final score was 31-13.
