Recap


Top-ranked LSU needed only 28 seconds to score its first touchdown Saturday and rolled past overwhelmed Mississippi 52-3 to set up next week’s SEC West showdown with Arkansas.

The Tigers (11-0, 7-0 SEC) lead Arkansas and Alabama by one game in the West. LSU can clinch the division title and a berth in the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 3 against Georgia by beating Arkansas at home on Friday.

LSU is off to its best start since 1958 and is 7-0 in the SEC for the first time.

The Razorbacks figure to provide a much stiffer challenge than the Rebels (2-9, 0-7), who lost their 13th consecutive conference game in outgoing coach Houston Nutt’s final home game.

LSU’s Ron Brooks returned an interception 46 yards for a touchdown on the third play of the game. Two touchdowns in a 94-second span of the first quarter - Kenny Hilliard’s 1-yard run and Jordan Jefferson’s 22-yard pass to Russell Shepard - gave the Tigers a 21-0 lead with 5:11 left in the period.

LSU kept rolling in the second quarter. Kevin Minter recovered a fumble in the end zone with 12:42 to go before halftime and Spencer Ware’s 35-yard touchdown run with 3:01 left made it 35-0 Tigers.

Jefferson finished the first half 7-of-7 passing for 88 yards and one touchdown and the Tigers averaged 6.7 yards per rush in the opening half.

LSU took a knee from the Ole Miss 1-yard line with five minutes left, leading 52-3.

Ole Miss, which committed three first-half turnovers, ends its season next Saturday at in-state rival Mississippi State.
