The Daily Mississippian sports editor David Collier gives the biggest tricks (disappointments) and treats (surprises) from the SEC in the first nine weeks of the season.

 
Trick: Arkansas, Auburn, Tennessee
 
At the beginning of the season, who would have thought Arkansas, Auburn and Tennessee would be where they are today? 
 

October 26, 2012

 
In this week’s edition of Four Downs, The Daily Mississippian football beat writers Bennett Hipp and Matt Sigler, sports editor David Collier and managing editor Austin Miller answer four questions regarding the week’s matchup.

 
1. How does Ole Miss respond coming off a bye week?
 
Bennett Hipp (@bennetthipp): I would expect Ole Miss to respond well, knowing that Saturday’s game against Arkansas is a key swing game for its potential bowl chances. The Rebels appear to be a team that enjoys playing on the road, which will bode well for them in a tough environment.

FRIDAY: LSU 3, OLE MISS 2 (OT)
 
The Ole Miss women’s soccer team (12-6, 5-6 SEC) took a hit in its bid for a higher seed in the Southeastern Conference Tournament with a 3-2 overtime loss to LSU (7-7-4, 3-6-2) on Friday night. It was a night of recognition as the team honored Breast Cancer Awareness Month with its annual Pink Out game. The team wore pink jerseys, and the crowd released pink balloons into the air during halftime.

In this week’s installment, The Daily Mississippian football beat writer Bennett Hipp gives his keys to this week’s matchup.

 
Take advantage of turnovers
 
Auburn enters the game ranked 119th in the country in turnover margin at -11. The only team below them is Virginia at -12. The Tigers have coughed up seven fumbles and have thrown 10 interceptions on the season.

In this week’s installment, The Daily Mississippian’s sports editor David Collier will rank the 14 Southeastern Conference teams. Opponents, game times and television networks are also included for each team.

 
1. Alabama (3-0, 1-0 SEC, 1st last week)
 
If anyone wasn’t already impressed with Alabama in the first two weeks of the season, they have to be after the Crimson Tide trampled the Arkansas Razorbacks on the road last weekend 52-0. Although Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson was sidelined with a head injury, it’s still really impressive what Nick Saban and his squad have been able to accomplish in the first few weeks of the year.  
 
This week: Florida Atlantic (1-2), 4 p.m., PPV

“It is especially good to get a win over (LSU) when they have a good team,” head coach Billy Chadwick said. “It was a great team effort that we had going from top to bottom. It was great to get the doubles point, and I felt we played really well in the first sets.”

Entering Saturday’s game, Ole Miss and LSU were two teams headed in opposite directions. 

 

Entering Saturday’s game, Ole Miss and LSU were two teams headed in opposite directions. 

The Rebels had lost three games in a row and five of their last six. 

The Tigers, on the other hand, had won four in a row and five of their last six. Ole Miss looked to turn things around and get some revenge for the 81-55 beating they took in Baton Rouge to open Southeastern Conference play back in January.

The Southeastern Conference is seen as one of the big basketball conferences and Joe Lunardi currently predicts five SEC teams making the NCAA tournament. He projects that Ole Miss will be looking from the sidelines again this season, and I agree with him for a number of reasons.

Monday night at Irie on the Square, Lafayette High School quarterback and Oxford native Jeremy Liggins stood up and faced a capacity crowd with five helmets of college teams on the table. Those five helmets represented Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Auburn. Quickly, Liggins reached out and grabbed the LSU helmet, saying simply, “Go Tigers, baby.”

For many, the thought of Liggins choosing a school other than Ole Miss on the Oxford Square seemed strange, but the 6’4,” 275-pound quarterback said that wasn’t really the case.

Sophomore Barry Brunetti rushes for 47 yards in the second quarter to help set up a junior Bryson Rose field goal before half time. Brunetti replaced junior Zack Stoudt at quarterback late in the first quarter. Brunetti had 15 carries for 74 along with  5 completions for 30 yards. The Rebels fall to 2-9 (0-7) with the 52-3 loss to LSU.

In a game that looked to be a huge mismatch in favor of LSU, the top-ranked Tigers (11-0, 7-0 SEC) dominated the Ole Miss Rebels (2-9, 0-7 SEC) from start to finish. The final count was 52-3, the largest margin of victory in the 100-year history of the Ole Miss-LSU rivalry and the Rebels’ worst loss since the 1974 season.

“They are a really good football team,” head coach Houston Nutt said. “But we helped them. We have to get ready for that last one (against Mississippi State). That’s the bottom line.”

On Saturday night, every Ole Miss senior will be playing their last game inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, and they will do so against the No. 1 LSU Tigers. It will also mark head coach Houston Nutt’s last home game in Oxford, before the Rebels close out the 2011 season next week at Mississippi State. For now, all Nutt is worried about is LSU.

When the Ole Miss Rebels tangle with the top-ranked LSU Tigers on Saturday, it will not only be the last home game in the Houston Nutt era, but it will also be Senior Night for the team’s 13 seniors.
For two of those seniors, they will be going out playing against their hometown team. Running back Brandon Bolden calls Baton Rouge, La., home and defensive end Kentrell Lockett hails from nearby Hahnville, La.
Both players have seen the ups and downs of the Ole Miss football program in Nutt’s tenure, and both have played instrumental roles in some big wins.

Repeat the quick start

This past week against Alabama, Ole Miss jumped out to an early 7-0 lead, thanks to a big pass play from Randall Mackey to Nick Brassell, followed by a short touchdown run from Jeff Scott. The Rebels must do the same this week against Arkansas, which has shown a propensity to come out sluggish and fall behind early in a few games. If Ole Miss wants to keep this game close, an early lead is a must.

Younger players must step up on defense

On Friday night, the team travels to Fayetteville to face the Razorbacks of Arkansas (2-5). Then the Rebels head south to Baton Rouge for a Sunday showdown against the Tigers of LSU (5-3-1).

After beginning Southeastern Conference play 1-1 at home this past weekend, the Ole Miss volleyball team is heading on the road to face off with two more SEC opponents.
“We’re going to be on the road and facing two teams with two new head coaches in Georgia and Auburn,” Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin said. “I expect both teams to be scrappy and to have two hard-fought matches.”
Last season, the Rebels (5-5, 1-1 SEC) had great success, winning both matches against Georgia and Auburn.
