OXFORD — In lieu of the traditional college football Sunday day-after story, The Clarion-Ledger will instead this season offer an "exit survey" following each Ole Miss game. Below, beat writer Antonio Morales and sports editor Hugh Kellenberger relive the Rebels' 50-22 win against Louisiana.
What is your Tweet-length review of this game?
Antonio Morales: Louisiana gave up 48 points or more to ULM and SELA, so there wasn't much of a chance it had in stopping Ole Miss and it was obvious.
Hugh Kellenberger: Call them Louisiana. Call them Louisiana-Lafayette. But whatever their name is, those boys didn't have a chance against Ole Miss.
What was the most memorable sequence of events?
AM: It's one thing to say it should be easy to score a lot of points against an opponent. It's another to actually do it. Ole Miss' first three possessions ended with touchdowns and none lasted longer than a minute and 35 seconds.
It was an efficient day from an offense that's gotten better over the past month and it erased any chance of an upset early.
HK: Yeah, it was the start. Coming off a run of emotional SEC games with an 11 a.m. kick, Ole Miss would have been excused for being sluggish. It was not. The Rebels walked out of the locker room ready to put their foot down on the Ragin' Cajuns' throats, and they did it.
If you're in the "Matt Luke should get the permanent job" camp, that was the best thing that happened Saturday for you.

In December, what about this game will we still be talking about?
AM: A.J. Brown. Yes, breaking that one defensive back's ankles will be remembered but he had 14 receptions for 185 yards, which put him at 1,015 yards this season. He's only the third receiver in Ole Miss history to surpass 1,000 yards.
Brown has more than 200 yards on the No. 2 receiver, in terms of yardage, in the SEC. He's fifth nationally in receiving yards and basically missed the entire Cal game. Many expected Brown to make a leap this season, I didn't know if they expected one this big though.
More: A.J. Brown climbs up the Ole Miss record book in win over Louisiana
HK: Brown is one of the best wide receivers in the country — he's efficient (catches vs. targets), productive (leads the SEC in all three main categories) and passes the eye-test.
But I'll argue that there's nothing from this game we will be talking about, because Ole Miss took care of business. You only remember the nonconference games for the disasters, not for the ones that were over after 15 minutes. So maybe that's what we're talking about?
Yeah, so about Matt Luke not getting Brown the 15th catch to break the single-game record  …
AM: This was one of the main topics of the postgame media availability, which should show how easy Ole Miss made it look Saturday.
HK: He also got six and one-yard catches right before halftime when Ole Miss was trying to move up to score again, but not really wanting to get vertical with it. So it all comes out in the wash.

Did you see Tayler Polk?
AM: Some fans point to Polk playing major snaps as evidence of Ole Miss' talent deficiency on defense. On Saturday, he led the team with seven tackles, had a sack and recovered an onside kick.
It was one of the more notable performances in Polk's Ole Miss career, which only has two games left in it.
HK: Yeah, he gets used as a straw man sometimes. It's not Polk's fault that Ole Miss missed out on a series of top linebacker recruits, and hasn't been able to develop the ones it did sign. All he's done is show up every day and do what he needs to do in order to get on the field and play to the best of his abilty when called upon.
