LSU, Mississippi meet in offensive showdown
OXFORD, Miss. - LSU's Zach Mettenberger and Mississippi's Bo Wallace were quarterbacks who appeared on the brink of stardom last season.
Mettenberger has made the jump. Wallace isn't quite there yet.
The two will meet in a potentially touchdown-filled showdown when No. 6 LSU (6-1, 3-1) travels to face Ole Miss (3-3, 1-3) on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
Mettenberger has been one of the best quarterbacks in the country through seven games, throwing for 1,890 yards, 15 touchdowns and two interceptions.
He's helped by two elite receivers - Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. - and an elite running game led by Jeremy Hill.
Wallace hasn't been bad, it's just the Ole Miss coaches want more. He's thrown for 1,444 yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions.
