Ole Miss and LSU will meet for the 106th time Saturday when the Rebels host the 24th-ranked Tigers at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in the latest rendition of the Magnolia Bowl.

It marks Ed Orgeron’s first trip back to Oxford as an opposing head coach after a well-documented disastrous tenure as Ole Miss’ coach in which Orgeron went just 10-25 overall with three SEC wins from 2005-07.

Kickoff is set for 6:15 p.m. on ESPN. Check back here for live updates throughout the game.

Ole Miss (3-3, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) is looking to start just its second winning streak of the season after last week’s win over Vanderbilt. LSU (5-2, 2-1) is looking for its third straight win after rallying from a 20-0 deficit to upset Auburn in its most recent outing.

It’ll be Ole Miss’ top-ranked passing offense in the SEC going against an LSU defense that leads the league in sacks. LSU’s Derrius Guice will be the latest challenge for the Rebels’ 117th-ranked run defense.
