KEY GAME INFORMATION
LSU: LSU was 10-3 despite ranking 87th in the nation in total offense (374 YPG). QB Zach Mettenberger (2,609 pass yds, 12 TD, 7 INT) is back to change that and is excited that Cam Cameron is his new OC, which should mean more pass attempts. WRs Odell Beckham Jr. (713 rec. yds, 2 TD) and Jarvis Landry (573 rec. yds, 5 TD) both need to be more consistent for Mettenberger to grow. Top RB Jeremy Hill (755 rush yds, 12 TD) was arrested for a bar fight in April, and his status is uncertain. Back-up RB Kenny Hilliard (464 rush yds, 6 TD) has a strong offensive line to work with. The fierce defense (308 YPG, 8th in FBS) lost all D-Line starters, but is still loaded. DT Anthony Johnson (3 sacks), LB Lamin Barrow (104 tackles, 5 QBH), CB Jalen Mills (57 tackles, 2 INT) and SS Craig Loston (55 tackles, 3 INT) are all productive returnees.
OLE MISS: Hugh Freeze's fast-paced spread offense improved from 281 YPG in 2011 (116th in FBS) to 424 YPG last year (46th in FBS), and turned his 2-10 team into a 7-6 club. QB Bo Wallace (2,994 pass yds, 22 TD 17 INT; 390 rush yds, 8 TD) missed the spring due to shoulder surgery, but should be ready for the fall. His three top pass catchers all return with WRs Donte Moncrief (979 rec. yds, TD), Vince Sanders (504 rec. yds, 4 TD) and Ja-Mes Logan (490 rec. yds). So does star RB Jeff Scott (846 rush yds, 6 TD). The Rebels' tremendous D-Line (103 TFL, T-4th in FBS; 38 sacks, T-11th in FBS) will remain disruptive with the nation's top recruit in DE Robert Nkemdiche. His brother, LB Denzel (82 tackles, 3 sacks, 3 INT, 4 FF), was the star of last year's 4-2-5 set, along with LB Mike Marry (78 tackles) and CB Charles Sawyer (63 tackles, 8 PD).

*LSU-Mississippi Preview* =========================

No. 8 LSU (6-1) at Ole Miss (3-3), 7:00 p.m. EDT

(AP) - LSU coach Les Miles always says he wants his team playing its best at "the back end" of the season, and hopes his Tigers are on that track.

For the second straight season, LSU put its back to the wall with an SEC road loss in October. And like last year, the Tigers have responded well through the middle of their schedule.

Now only one SEC contest - at Mississippi on Saturday night - stands between sixth-ranked LSU and an SEC West driver's-seat matchup with No. 1 Alabama on Nov. 9.

The key now for LSU (6-1, 3-1) is to not get caught overlooking the struggling Rebels (3-3, 1-3), who are banged up and have lost three straight, but whose last two losses came by a combined seven points.

"Any time you line up against the Ole Miss team, there's tradition and history," Miles said.

LSU has won six of the eight meetings with Ole Miss, but half of those victories were by seven points or less. Last season, the Tigers had to rally for a 41-35 victory.

A year ago, the Tigers lost at Florida in October, but rebounded to set up a clash with Alabama for first place in the SEC West. The Tigers fell to the eventual national champion Crimson Tide 21-17 on a last-minute touchdown.

Three weekends ago, LSU dropped a 44-41 shootout at Georgia, leaving the Tigers virtually no margin for error if they wanted to catch Alabama for the SEC West title without any help. Since then, LSU has registered a 59-26 rout of Mississippi State and a 17-6 triumph over Florida.

"The personality of our football team is one where they are ambitious," Miles said. "They are looking to the future and this week it's all about Ole Miss."

The defense has numerous young players. Four sophomores are in the starting lineup, a freshman starts at cornerback and another freshman plays in the nickel package.

After allowing 88 points in a span of eight quarters - the second half against Auburn, the Georgia game and the first half at Mississippi State - the Tigers have yielded just three field goals in the past six quarters.

"That loss (against Georgia) bears on your heart," cornerback Jalen Mills said. "You never want to have that feeling again."

Against Florida last week, LSU failed to score at least 35 points for the first time this season. However, the Tigers took a different approach against the Gators' stingy defense. Rather than relying upon Zach Mettenberger's passing, LSU ran the ball with Jeremy Hill.

Mettenberger was just 9 of 17 for 152 yards - all season lows. But Hill rushed for 121 yards on 19 carries - his fourth 100-yard game of the season.

"The offense in my opinion did exactly what it needed to do," Miles said. "It controlled the game, moved the football, was smart with the ball and finished the game. Zach played a pretty good game. It might not have been his best game, but he managed the situations and allowed us to play well enough to win."

Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze figures Mettenberger is bound to bounce back with a more prolific outing sooner than later.

"He was certainly good in our game last year, but he certainly has improved," Freeze said. "They're certainly playing their strengths of winning one-on-one matchups to the outside. ... Mettenberger isn't missing many open receivers when he has them. He's making very, very good throws and managing the game extremely well."

LSU's offensive players believe they have gained confidence since that loss to Georgia.

"Everything happens for a reason," offensive tackle La'El Collins said. "It was time for (loss) to happen. It was time for us to look at our mistakes and see the things we can do differently. We can't take things for granted.

"We're a whole lot better now. The offense has really made strides. We have come a long way, but it is still a process. The road to a championship is always under construction."

Injuries are a big concern for Mississippi, especially on defense, as it gets set to face a Tigers team averaging 41.4 points.

"It's part of the game, but you sure hate it," Freeze said. "You hate it for the kids. You fear that because of our depth issues we won't be able to adequately represent the progress we're making against these top teams. But that's part of the game. We won't blink. We'll get the ones we have ready."

For Ole Miss, stopping LSU's offense is another huge challenge in a month full of them. The Rebels' three straight losses have come to Alabama, an Auburn squad now ranked 24th and then-No. 9 Texas A&M last Saturday.

"Our goal (against LSU) will be to eliminate the amount of explosive plays that they have and manage the game that way," Freeze said. "But those guys are good enough where they're going to win some of those battles."

Ole Miss will be trying to beat LSU with a skeleton crew. Freeze said linebacker and leading tackler Serderius Bryant (concussion) is one of about a half-dozen defensive players who would likely miss Saturday's game.

The Rebels had a 38-31 lead with six minutes remaining last weekend before Johnny Manziel led the Aggies on back-to-back scoring drives to win the game 41-38.

"It's tough," quarterback Bo Wallace said. "You feel bad for the guys, but at the same time, we still have a long season. We have to be prepared to play this week. A lot of defensive guys are going to be out, so on offense we have to be on point. We've got to put up points."
