Welcome to Highlights, where we'll break down significant plays from LSU's last football game.
ON THE REBELS OFFENSE
Since replacing an injured Shea Patterson last season, Ta'amu has done a solid job and leads the SEC with 1,359 yards passing for a team that ranks 14th in the FBS, averaging 522.8 total yards per game. Brown is the real deal as a preseason first-team All-SEC pick.
ON THE REBELS DEFENSE
While the offense is capable, the defense has been a major problem. Ole Miss ranks 120th of 129 FBS teams in allowing 505.3 total yards per game. The Rebels are 121st against the pass (314.5 yards a game) and 111th in scoring defense (36.8 points per game).
