The line for this game is LSU by 6 points.

No. 23 LSU’s resurgent offense is set to get another weapon when Leonard Fournette returns from an ankle injury against visiting No. 22 Ole Miss on Saturday. Fournette has yet to take part in interim coach Ed Orgeron’s new offense after sitting out the last two games.

Quarterback Chad Kelly suffered through his worst passing day of the season at Arkansas last week, completing 46.2 percent of his passes against a strong rush, but still sits second in the SEC with 1,849 passing yards. Kelly’s favorite target is tight end Evan Engram, who leads the SEC with 590 yards but counts his three biggest receiving games of the season in the team’s three losses. Engram caught five passes for 58 yards and a score in a 38-17 home win over LSU last season but the star was Kelly, who passed for 280 yards and two touchdowns and added 81 yards and a pair of scores on the ground.

Fournette’s absence opened up the door for Derrius Guice, who piled up 325 yards and five touchdowns on 33 carries in the last two games, and 480 yards and six TDs in the three that Fournette sat out this season. Guice’s strong rushing against Southern Miss last week opened things up for quarterback Danny Etling, who threw for 276 yards and three TDs in the 45-10 win. The Tigers have yet to allow an opponent to score more than 20 points and defensive end Arden Key leads the SEC with seven sacks while Kendell Beckwith (60) ranks second in tackles.

Ole Miss has scored 30 or more points in 10 straight games.

The Tigers have won 18 straight October home games.

Rebels DE Fadol Brown (stress fracture) could travel with the team and play for the first time since Week 2.
