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.

1. LSU (12-0, 8-0 SEC, 1st last week): LSU all but locked up a spot in the BCS National Championship with a 41-17 trouncing of Arkansas, the Tigers’ third win over a top-three team this season. In all, LSU has beat seven top-25 teams by an average margin of victory of more than 20 points. Despite trailing 14-0 early in the second quarter, the Tigers outgained the Razorbacks 494-254, including 286-47 on the ground. Sophomore defensive back Tyrann Mathieu was the player of the game, tying the game on an electrifying 92-yard punt return for a touchdown, forcing two fumbles and recovering one of the them. LSU looks to keep its perfect season intact when they play Georgia in Saturday’s SEC Championship.

This week: vs. Georgia (10-2, 7-1 SEC), 3 p.m., CBS

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.”

Four-and-half years went by too fast. So fast that I have to recount the ups-and-downs I’ve experienced while at Ole Miss. I’ve seen some amazing things while at Ole Miss, some of them good and some of them bad.

1. Auburn (12-0 overall, 8-0 SEC): While Cam Newton could take up an entire highlight reel this year with did-you-see-that plays, Newton made his best play of year on Tuesday when he scrambled out of NCAA ineligibility. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the 2010 recipient of the Heisman Trophy, Mr. Cameron Newton.

Ole Miss got an inspired effort from quarterback Jeremiah Masoli  and gave No. 5 LSU all they could handle, but in the end Les Miles exercised his demons against Houston Nutt and the Rebels.

Ole Miss got an inspired effort from quarterback Jeremiah Masoli  and gave No. 5 LSU all they could handle, but in the end Les Miles exorcised his demons against Houston Nutt and the Rebels.

The Tigers (10-1, 6-1 SEC), a team that had lost two in a row to  Ole Miss (4-7, 1-6 SEC), defeated the Rebels 43-36 on Saturday in Baton Rouge behind three rushing touchdowns from one-time Ole Miss commit Stevan Ridley.

With the loss, the Rebels are eliminated from postseason consideration after winning back-to-back Cotton Bowls.

In April of last year, Jason Smith, last year’s sports editor, and I wrote ran column that ran online in regard to Ole Miss sweeping LSU in all of the three major sports (college football, basketball and baseball).

Yep, it was just last year that Les Miles’ clock mismanagement sealed the Rebels’ 25-23 win over the Tigers.

1. Auburn (11- 0 overall, 7-0 SEC, 1st last week): The Tigers went “all in” with their decision to play embattled quarterback Cam Newton in a Southeastern Conference West clinching win over Georgia. Auburn’s decision makes sense: If the allegations of Newton accepting extra benefits are true, then the Tigers are in big trouble whether Newton played or not.

1. Auburn (10-0 overall, 6-0 in SEC, 1st last week): Amid harrowing accusations of major NCAA violations, quarterback Cam Newton once again put on a show, albeit against UT-Chattanooga.

1. Auburn (1st last week, 4-0 SEC, 7-0 overall): It was mentioned during the CBS broadcast of Auburn vs. Arkansas that Cam Newton volunteers some of his time working with kids. On Saturday, Newton made the Arkansas defense look like children, posting 328 yards of offense and four touchdowns on an embattled Razorbacks defense.

1. Auburn (6-0 overall, 3-0 in SEC, 2nd last week): The Tigers find themselves all alone atop my Southeastern Conference rankings by virtue of an Alabama loss and a previous win over South Carolina. 

Quarterback Cam Newton is the most exciting player in the conference.

1. Alabama (5-0 overall, 2-0 in SEC, 1st last week): Nick Saban may be a very angry man and might also have something against hillbillies (just Google it), but he sure as hell knows how to win a football game or two. The Crimson Tide demolished Florida thanks to a relentless defense – a unit that was supposedly Alabama’s weakness.

1. Arkansas: Let’s not stop at the Southeastern Conference; Ryan Mallett could be the best quarterback in all of college football (Washington’s Jake Locker begs to differ).
