The Ole Miss football team moved up four spots to No. 16 in the latest Associated Press poll after taking down LSU 55-49 in front of a record-breaking crowd at Vaught Hemingway Stadium.
Both teams combined for 1,343 total yards — 706 for Ole Miss and 637 for LSU — with opposing quarterbacks Jaxson Dart and Jayden Daniels throwing for a combined eight touchdowns and rushing for a collective two.
Ole Miss started the game up 14-0, but LSU clawed their way back into the contest, ultimately taking a two-score lead into the second half.
Lane Kiffin’s squad overcame and scored a last-minute touchdown to take the lead late into the fourth quarter, and held on for dear life defensively to keep LSU out of the end zone as the clock expired — leading fans to storm the field to celebrate their head coach’s signature win.
The Rebels’ balanced offensive attack carried them through Saturday’s game. For the first time this season, the team rushed for over 300 yards. All-American Quinshon Judkins led the way with 177 yards and a touchdown on the ground. He also had a receiving touchdown in the first half.
Ole Miss signal caller Jaxson Dart recorded 389 yards through the air and 50 on the ground with five total touchdowns.
Next up for Ole Miss (4-1, 1-1 SEC) is a home match against Arkansas next Saturday at 6:30 p.m. CT. The game will be broadcast on the SEC Network and can be streamed on participating SuperTalk Mississippi stations.
