OXFORD, Miss. -- When it comes to wins and losses, the tenure of former Ole Miss coach Ed Orgeron was an undisputed disaster.Current Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze -- who worked for Orgeron during those tough times for the Rebels -- has a slightly different perspective.So when No. 23 Ole Miss (3-3, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) travels to face No. 25 LSU (4-2, 2-1) on Saturday, there will be a new twist to the annual rivalry. Orgeron is LSUs interim coach after Les Miles was fired in September, meaning Freeze will be coaching against the man who gave him his start in the college game.Everybody comes up with their own opinions, but Im so indebted to coach Orgeron, Freeze said. I have great respect for him and everything hes meant to my career.For Orgeron, the respect is mutual.Hes a tremendous coach, Orgeron said of Freeze. Hes a tremendous fit for that school.Freeze was a high school coach in Memphis, Tennessee, when Orgeron hired him as an off-the-field administrative assistant in 2005. He was promoted to receivers coach in 2006.The on-the-field results for the partnership were not good. Orgeron was fired following the 2007 season after a 10-25 record over three seasons, including a 3-21 mark in the SEC.But Freeze said there were many good things he learned from Orgeron -- especially as it relates to recruiting and passion for the profession -- that hes carried with him throughout his career. After bouncing around for a few seasons following Orgerons dismissal, Freeze became head coach at Arkansas State in 2011 and took the Ole Miss job in 2012.I dont know that Ive ever been around a coach whos more passionate and came to work every single day with that same energy, same passion and same drive, Freeze said. It wasnt a roller coaster in that regard. He was as driven as anyone Ive ever seen.Orgeron was candid about his Ole Miss tenure on Monday, saying he squandered a good opportunity. But the failure made him reassess how he would run a program if he ever received another chance.You got to look at yourself in the mirror, Orgeron said. You can place blame on other people but nothings going to change. Im the only person that can change me.So far, hes made the most of his opportunity.Freeze said LSUs offense, in particular, is much improved since Orgeron took over the program. The Tigers have won both games under Orgeron, including a 42-7 win over Missouri and a 45-10 victory against Southern Mississippi on Saturday.Whatever hes doing is working, Freeze said. Theyve played two games and looked really, really good in them.Ole Miss, on the other hand, has struggled.The Rebels are coming off a 34-30 loss to Arkansas and look like a middle-of-the-pack SEC team after starting the season with championship aspirations. The Ole Miss offense has been consistently productive, but the teams defense ranks at or near the bottom of the league in several major categories.The Orgeron-vs.-Ole Miss angle doesnt really matter to most of the Rebel players, who were in elementary school or junior high during the former coachs tenure.Instead, theyre focused on bouncing back from the Arkansas loss.Last week will not beat us this week -- thats our mentality, Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram said. Were going to be ready on Saturday. Were going to be hyped all week and we cant wait to get down there.-----AP Sports Writer Brett Martel contributed to this story.-----Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP .

Lou Williams scored 25 points and the Hawks continued their offensive upswing as they rolled to an easy 118-85 victory over the Jazz on Friday night, winning their third straight and for the fourth time in five games. Wisconsins victory lap from Lambeau Field to Madison was memorable if not for the miles traveled the distance covered between national expectations and those from inside the Badgers program.Saturday (3:30 ET) against Mid-American foe Akron, the 10th-ranked Badgers dont want to misplay the respect card.Wisconsin entered the season with questions regarding its quarterback, the ability to handle such a rugged schedule and concerns of a potential drop-off for the program after years of sustained success.The Badgers only had eight seniors on their two-deep roster for the opener against LSU.All those concerns, at least for a few weeks, were put aside following a shocking 16-14 win over No. 5 LSU in the season opener in Green Bay.I feel like we were out to gain respect, and I think we did it at the end of the day, Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt said.Akron beat VMI, 47-24, in its opener, with six touchdown passes from quarterback Tommy Woodson and 576 yards total offense. But a Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall will be a new challenge altogether, even if Akron coach Terry Bowden is 1-0 head-to-head against Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst (Akron beat Pitt in 2014). Wisconsin is 2-0 all-time against Akron and won 38-17 in 2008 with 404 rushing yards.Bowden is 20-30 as Akron head coach, and hes not shy about the way the Zips want to win. Theyre throw, throw early, often and go deep when they do. In the first quarter Saturday, Akron had many miscues, but the Zips also had five pass plays of 20-plus yards.Its going to stress us out differently (than LSU), Chryst said. Theyre going to spread us out and weve got to play good assignment football.The MAC has a 10-year streak of scoring at least one upset over the Big Ten, and Western Michigan wiped out Northwestern last week. The history lesson is not lost on the Badgers.Some people might have a harder time, staying in the past and celebrating that victory a little too much, but I think were a real focused group, Watt said.dddddddddddd Weve already started watching film, breaking down Akron, so its just on to the next one.The Badgers (1-0) defied the odds by defeating an SEC powerhouse that returned 17 starters and many experts viewed as a potential playoff contender. Wisconsins defense forced three turnovers, running back Corey Clement had a big game and kicker Rafael Gaglianone made three field goals, including the winner with just under four minutes left. Clement rushed for 86 yards on a career-high 21 carries.Im excited about what the future holds for this defense and this Wisconsin badgers football team, senior linebacker Vince Biegel said.Akron had 13 penalties last week, including a defensive personal foul on a goal-to-go situation, missed two extra points and led 26-24 entering the fourth quarter. Bowden knows Saturday could be a reality check if the Zips dont pack discipline, and defense.Defensively ... you can see were still a work in progress, Bowden said.The immediate future for Wisconsin includes a drop-off in strength of opponents. After hosting Akron on Saturday and Georgia State the following week, the Badgers begin a stretch of games against ranked conference opponents -- at Michigan State and Michigan, home against Ohio State and at Iowa.These next two weeks are very important, Clement said. Im not saying these arent big games, but you talk about Michigan and Michigan State and all these other great opponents that are in the Big Ten, you want to go into those games with as much momentum as possible.Wisconsin inside linebacker Chris Orr is out for the season because of a season-ending knee injury suffered against LSU. The Badgers did not disclose the status of linebacker T.J. Edwards, who didnt play at LSU because of a fractured foot.
