The Rebels close out their schedule on an easier note with Georgia Southern, Vanderbilt and Mississippi State among their final four games, but the team still has to travel to College Station to take on the undefeated and sixth-ranked Texas A&M Aggies on November 12. Defensively, Ole Miss football is yielding 234.0 yards in passing and 215.4 yards in rushing against the opposing teams.
The A&M volleyball team capped off its three-game road stretch with a 3-1 (25-12, 21-25, 25-20, 25-18) win over Ole Miss Sunday afternoon.
Chad Kelly, the nephew of former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, is in his second season at Ole Miss after previous stops at Clemson and a junior college. At the end of regulation, the score was tied, 45-45.
The Rebels have a long history with Arkansas though they've only played the Razorbacks at their place 12 previous times. The first drive didn't go as smoothly for Arkansas.
What happened next, the Ole Miss players will probably never forget. "I obviously wouldn't have run out on the field", Chad Kelly said Monday, speaking for the first time since the incident. They were pulling him back because he gets emotional. More importantly, he picked up the first down. "I was on the sideline". "But I think the events that happened could have happened to a lot of us. It was a bad play, bad moment".
"They fight 60 minutes", Engram said. It's definitely going to be a grind, but we feel good about it.
Two plays later, Arkansas scored a touchdown. The game kicks off at 6 p.m. and will be televised by ESPN. On the first attempt, Marquis Haynes sacked Allen.
The Rebels took a pretty talented team to Northwest Arkansas two years ago, and the Fayetteville Funk engulfed them as it so often does in a 30-0 loss. A facemask penalty was called against the Rebels, giving the Razorbacks another chance. The game was over.
Kelly has a great deal of trust in his receivers, a deep and talented group. "The way they use them, you have to add to the box to try to stop their run and then their quarterback that played extremely well, when you do that and using their tight ends and wide outs to win some one-on-ones and we struggled stopping that previous year".
"Each game, the game plan kind of changes based on how the quarterback is playing", Evans said Tuesday.
That said, when the top-ranked Tide travels to Knoxville on Saturday for a Top-10 matchup with No. 9 Tennessee, pressure might continue to come from the outside while the inside linebackers stay home to protect against the Volunteers' strong power run game. The average football play lasts six seconds.
It's been nearly a year since that game. But Ole Miss defensive coordinator Dave Wommack expects Arkansas to be more balanced on Saturday.
Williams said picking up the running game lies in "just attention detail".
What makes me think it swings the Ole Miss way is Kelly.
