No. 25 Ole Miss beats No. 17 LSU 38-17
OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Chad Kelly threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns to lead No. 25 Mississippi over No. 17 LSU 38-17 on Saturday night.
Ole Miss (8-3, 5-2 Southeastern Conference, No. 22 CFP) jumped out to a 24-0 by late in the second quarter and dominated for most of the game.
Kelly completed 19 of 34 passes and also ran for 81 yards and two touchdowns.
LSU (7-3, 4-3, No. 15 CFP), which has lost three straight games for the first time since 1999, rallied in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 24-17, but the Rebels responded with two quick touchdowns to put the game out of reach.
LSU star running back Leonard Fournette had a decent day, with 108 yards rushing on 25 carries, but his presence was mostly neutralized after the Tigers fell into an early hole and had to throw to try and score points quickly.
