The Tigers again found themselves in an early hole, but they rallied once more against the No. 7 Ole Miss Rebels, who were held scoreless in the second half of LSU’s convincing 45-20 victory. After handing Mississippi its first loss in 2022, the Tigers (at least, temporarily) stand alone in the top spot of the SEC West.
LSU was dominated at home in its first opportunity against a top-10 team in Tennessee two weeks ago, but it flipped the script this time around to earn a massive win in the Magnolia Bowl. The Tigers still control their destiny in the division race.
Fans on social media were ecstatic after the win, which was a major upset as far as the rankings are concerned. Here were the best reactions from Saturday night.
LSU curb stomped the Rebs. @Lane_Kiffin should be ashamed of his team's performance tonight.

LSU outscored Ole Miss, 42-6 over the final three quarters today after falling behind by double-digits. Jayden Daniels went 18-of-22 over that stretch.. Impressive response by the Tigers.

Harold Perkins changed this game.
Matt House changed his DL into a "TITE" front and subbed out BJ Ojulari…
Perkins became the "JACK" OLB
1) Forced more pre-snap chaos
2) OL's started missing more blocks on other players
LSU crushes Ole Miss after the change#GTHOM

LSU should be back in the AP Top-25 tomorrow after beating No. 7 Ole Miss. Jayden Daniels accounts for 5 TD’s. https://t.co/j835SAWyFr
