    Ole Miss Stuns LSU on Late Field Goal


    By Tim Letcher

    Andrew Ritter booted a 41-yard field goal with two seconds left, lifting Ole Miss to a 27-24 upset over No. 6 LSU on Saturday night in Oxford.

    Ole Miss dominated the first half, leading 10-0 at the break. The Rebels scored again, in the third quarter, to take a 17-0 lead.

    But LSU would not go down easily. LSU rallied and actually tied the game at 24 with 3:19 to go on a Zach Mettenberger pass to Jarvis Landry.

    However, Ole Miss took the ball down the field, setting up Ritter's heroics at the end.

    Bo Wallace had a huge game for the Rebels, passing for 345 yards, and Jaylen Walton added a pair of rushing touchdowns.
