Ole Miss looks to avoid falling into a free fall as they face former head coach Ed Orgeron, and the LSU Tigers. Here is how to watch the game online.
The LSU Tigers have seen a bit of an offensive renaissance in recent games against Missouri and Southern Mississippi. After the firing of Les Miles, Ed Orgeron has this team looking like what most people expected them to look like at the beginning of the season. While the Tigers did come out flat against Southern Miss in the first half, they quickly rectified that and shut the Golden Eagles out in the second half and proceeded to march to a 45-10 win. An offense that has begun to play well will only get better with the return of star running back, Leonard Fournette.

The Ole Miss Rebels were handed a disappointing defeat to the hands of the Arkansas Razorbacks last Saturday, marking the third year in a row that the Rebels have lost to Arkansas. The young Rebel defense just cannot seem to make the crucial third down stops when head coach Hugh Freeze and his team need them the most. The offense for Ole Miss, was also not all there as receivers dropped many passes and Chad Kelly was behind on many of his throws, very uncharacteristic of this offense for the past two seasons.
Here is all of the information you need for this years edition of the Magnolia Bowl:
LSU interim head coach Ed Orgeron gets possibly his one and only shot at revenge against his old team, the first school to give him a shot at head coach. While it did not work out for either side, both have moved on to greater and bigger things, respectively. Orgeron needs a signature win to stay in contention for the permanent job as head coach at LSU, and I would expect him to get that win this week against the rival Ole Miss Rebels.
