New Orleans -- After blowing a 17-point lead, the Ole Miss Rebels used a 41-yard field goal in the game's final seconds to upset No. 6 LSU 27-24 in Oxford.
With the loss, the Tigers fall to 6-2 overall and 3-2 in SEC play. LSU's outside chance of playing its way into the national championship conversation has all but ended.
Zach Mettenberger had his worst outing of the season, throwing three first half interceptions as the Rebels built a 10-0 lead at the break. Mettenberger finished the game 19-of-33 for 274 yards with one touchdown.
Ole Miss increased its lead to 17-0 in the third quarter when LSU finally staged a comeback. Touchdown runs from Kenny Hilliard and Jeremy Hill made the score 17-14.
The Rebels went back on top 24-14, but the Tigers scored the next 10 points in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 24. Mettenberger hit Odell Beckham Jr. on a huge fourth down conversion to keep a drive alive. Then Jarvis Landry hauled in the Tigers' touchdown to give them new life.
Ego Ferguson also blocked an Ole Miss field goal attempt earlier in the quarter.
However, on its final drive, Ole Miss marched down the field behind great play from quarterback Bo Wallace, and kicker Andrew Ritter converted the game-winning kick to hand LSU its second loss.
