Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson will miss the remainder of the season with a torn knee ligament, a school official told ESPN's Chris Low on Sunday morning. Patterson tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Saturday night's 40-24 loss to LSU, the source said. JUCO transfer Jordan Ta'amu completed 7 of 11 passes for 78 yards against LSU and will probably start next week's game against Arkansas (12 p.m. ET, SEC Network).

It's no secret that Ed Orgeron's first stint as a head coach ended badly. He went 3-21 in SEC play in three seasons at Ole Miss and was fired. He admits now he was in over his head back then as a head coach, but said there's no added motivation for him when he takes his LSU team into Oxford on Saturday to face Ole Miss because he's right where he always wanted to be. "I can honestly tell you that's so far in the past that it's just another game to me because the truth is the whole time I was there I was wishing I were here," Orgeron told ESPN. "I always looked up to this program. I was like ‘Wow,' when I saw LSU, what a great program if I could ever be a part of this program. Now I'm here so it all worked out."
