The Ole Miss Rebels meet the LSU Tigers Saturday in week 8 SEC college football action at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The LSU Tigers look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The Ole Miss Rebels look for a win to build on their solid 5-1 record.

The LSU Tigers have lost five of their last eight road games. Max Johnson is completing 61.3 percent of his passes for 1,863 yards, 20 touchdowns and four interceptions. Kayshon Boutte and Jack Bech have combined for 801 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, while Brian Thomas Jr. has 16 receptions. The LSU Tigers ground game is averaging 117.4 yards per contest, and Tyrion Davis-Price leads the way with 574 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, LSU is allowing 28.4 points and 401.6 yards per game. Damone Clark leads the LSU Tigers with 80 tackles, BJ Ojulari has six sacks and Eli Ricks has one interception.

The Ole Miss Rebels have won five straight home games. Matt Corral is completing 66.3 percent of his passes for 1,728 yards, 14 touchdowns and one interception. Dontario Drummond and Braylon Sanders have combined for 835 receiving yards and nine touchdowns, while Jonathan Mingo has 15 receptions. The Ole Miss Rebels ground game is averaging 262.8 yards per contest, and Corral leads the way with 450 yards and eight touchdowns. Defensively, Ole Miss is allowing 30.2 points and 438 yards per game. Chance Campbell leads the Ole Miss Rebels with 46 tackles, Sam Williams has 6.5 sacks and Keidron Smith has two interceptions.

The Tigers are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 road games and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games as an underdog. The Rebels are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games. The over is 7-3 in Tigers last 10 games overall. The over is 7-3 in Rebels last 10 home games. The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The Ole Miss Rebels are the better team here and their offense is capable of producing blowouts, but they struggle defensively and find themselves in shootouts a lot. The LSU Tigers are coming off their biggest win of the season, and now players have a chance to rally behind coach Ed Orgeron after it was reported this will be his last season. This is a lot of points to swallow. I lean toward LSU on the road.
