Oxford, MS (SportsNetwork.com) - Even with a depleted defense, Ole Miss got its top-10 win.

Andrew Ritter's 41-yard field goal with two seconds remaining lifted the Rebels to a 27-24 triumph over No. 6 LSU.

The Tigers overcame a 17-0 second-half deficit and tied the game at 24-24 with 3:19 left after Jarvis Landry hauled in a 4-yard TD pass from Zach Mettenberger.

Unfazed, the Rebels' Bo Wallace led his troops down the field.

Beginning the trek at the 15-yard line, Wallace scrambled for seven yards on a 3rd-and-6 before later converting a 3rd-and-11 with a 14-yard strike to Ja- Mes Logan. The Rebels moved across midfield following a Wallace 10-yard run and I'Tavius Mathers' 12-yard rush put Ole Miss in field-goal range at the LSU 30.

Ritter snuck his kick just inside the right upright four plays later.

The Rebels had lost three straight tilts coming in, including two against top-10 squads -- a 25-0 defeat at top-ranked Alabama on Sept. 28 and a last- second 41-38 loss to then-No. 9 Texas A&M last Saturday.
