No. 1 LSU 52, Mississippi 3
Ron Brooks returned an interception for a touchdown 28 seconds into the game and LSU piled up 353 yards rushing on the way to a 49-point romp. LSU's domination of Mississippi was so complete that with more than five minutes remaining in the game, the Tigers lined up in a victory formation, content to kneel four straight times rather than try for another touchdown. At 11-0, LSU matched its best start since 1958.
