Miles sees improvement with top 3 Ole Miss looming
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU coach Les Miles says the Tigers are demonstrating improvement in all phases and enjoying a recent resurgence that has lifted them back into the Top 25 as a visit from third-ranked Mississippi approaches.
Miles says the Tigers' offensive line is blocking better in the running and passing game, while the defense is better prepared than it has been all season to deal with a quarterback as talented as the Rebels' Bo Wallace.
Miles also is pleased with recent big plays in the kick- and punt-return game that helped LSU roll to a 41-3 victory over Kentucky.
LSU has won two-straight SEC games and rushed for 303 yards against the Wildcats last Saturday, but Ole Miss has one of the top-rated defenses in the nation.
