A better overall effort one week after suffering the most disappointing loss in Houston Nutt’s tenure wasn’t enough to lift the Ole Miss Rebels past the No. 5 team in the country Saturday afternoon.
Every ounce of energy the Rebels could muster gave them three different leads against LSU in the second half, including two in the fourth quarter, but in the end it was the Tigers who had just enough energy to pull out a thrilling 43-36 win over the Rebels in front of a capacity crowd at Tiger Stadium and a national TV audience watching via CBS.

Ole Miss and LSU may be one the same side of the standings in the Southeastern Conference, but that’s about the only thing the two schools have in common heading into Saturday’s annual “Magnolia Bowl” meeting at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.
The Rebels are 4-6 overall and 1-5 in the SEC after falling 52-14 on the road at Tennessee last weekend and in desperate need of some good fortune to finish the regular season. (November 19, 2010, Page 6A)
