No. 6 LSU gaining steam again, focused on Ole Miss

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU coach Les Miles always says he wants his team playing its best at "the back end" of the season, and hopes his Tigers are on that track.

For the second straight season, LSU put its back to the wall with a Southeastern Conference loss in October. And like last year, the Tigers have responded well through the middle of their schedule.

Now only one SEC contest - at Mississippi this Saturday - stands between sixth-ranked LSU and an SEC West matchup with top-ranked Alabama on Nov. 9.

After double-digit victories over Mississippi State and No. 22 Florida, the Tigers are confident heading to struggling Ole Miss.

The Rebels have lost three straight, but Miles says his team knows better than to overlook a rival that routinely plays LSU tough.
