Jeremy hill scored on a one-yard touchdown run with :15 remaining to lift the 7th-ranked LSU Tigers to a 41-35 come-from-behind victory over the Ole Miss Rebels, in SEC action, on Saturday afternoon at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Ole Miss led the game, 14-7, after the first quarter, 21-17 at halftime, 28-20 after three quarters, and then took a 35-28 lead at the 11:11 mark of the game when quarterback Bo Wallace connected with Donte Moncrief on a 30-yard touchdown pass.

The Tigers tied the game, 35-35, at the 9:10 mark when Odell Beckham returned a punt 89 yards for a touchdown.

LSU got the ball, for their final possession, at the 4:03 mark of the game, and proceeded to go 64 yards, on nine plays, and grabbed the lead, and the eventual win, with Hill’s score.

Ole Miss out-gained LSU, in terms of total yards, 463-427, but the Tigers forced the Rebels to turn over the football four times.

LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger led the way for the Tigers, completing 22-of-37 passes, for 282 yards, while Ole miss was paced in a losing cause by Wallace, who threw for 310 yards and two touchdowns, but was also intercepted three times.

With the win, LSU improved to 9-2 overall, and 5-2 in SEC play, while Ole Miss fell to 5-6 overall, and 2-5 in league play.
