LAST THREE GAMES AGAINST LOUISIANA-LAFAYETTE
November 6, 2010 - Ole Miss 43, UL-Lafayette 21 at Oxford:
The Rebels led 24-7 during the first quarter before starting quarterback Jeremiah Masoli left the game with a concussion. Ole Miss managed to finish the fight without him, eventually winnng the game 43-21. The Rebels were led by running back Brandon Bolden's 136 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Bolden also caught four passes for 80 yards. Enrique Davis also added to the running game, tallying 116 rushing yards, allowing the Rebels to gain a total of 298 yards on the ground.

October 17, 1987 - Ole Miss 24, SW Louisiana 14 at Oxford:
Ole Miss built a 17-0 lead after one half en route to a 24-14 victory over Southwestern Louisiana in Oxford. John Darnell connected on a pair of touchdowns to Willie Green, from 21 yards and 44 yards, as the Rebels outgained the Ragin' Cajuns by 237 total yards (476 to 239). Darnell finished the game 15-of-19 passing for 179 yards, two TDs and no interceptions. Green led the receiving corps with 91 yards on five receptions, and Chuck Cleveland paced a balanced running attack with his team-high 72 yards on 13 carries.

October 18, 1986 - Ole Miss 21, SW Louisiana 20 at Oxford:
The Rebels led 21-6 at the end of three quarters, but had to stave off a furious Ragin' Cajun fourth-quarter rally to prevail 21-20. Southwestern Louisiana blocked a punt and returned it 39 yards for a score with 3:05 left in the game and then got the ball back, marched down the field, and scored again with just 1:17 remaining. Instead of going for the tie, they elected to try a two-point conversion for the win, but failed. Mark Young was 13-of-22 passing for 165 yards, one TD and one interception. He also rushed for two scores. Seven of his passes were caught by Ricky Myers, who gained 101 yards through the air with a touchdown.
