Happy Wednesday, Ole Miss fans!
Another day has come and gone, and it marks one day closer for the Rebels to get back on the field against LSU on Nov. 21. All hope for an SEC West title appears to be lost, but with three weekends of football to go, you never know what can happen, especially in the SEC.
Here are two things to know:
- Although Ole Miss won’t be making their way to Dallas or Miami for the first round of the College Football Playoff, there’s still plenty of great destinations the Rebels could up in. As of now, most projections have Ole Miss heading to Florida to ring in the new year.
- It comes as no surprise to anyone that the Rebels found themselves left out of this week’s College Football Playoff rankings. With two marquee games remaining on the schedule, Ole Miss can get back into the rankings by season’s end.

- There’s no easy way to get over a loss like the one the Rebels sustained against Arkansas. Last season, Ole Miss had a similar situation after the heartbreaking loss against Auburn, and the Rebels never really recovered. RebelGrove.com’s Neal McCready takes a look at how this year’s team has reacted to the loss.
- Another topic of conversation over these past few weeks is the NFL future for several players on Ole Miss’ roster. The Rebels have three players garnering top 10 projections among different mock drafts. Ben Garrett of the Ole Miss Spirit has a report on how those players are handling the situation.
- Daniel Pauling of the Clarion-Ledger has a nice notebook from Tuesday’s practice, which includes quarterback Chad Kelly’s high praise for one of his backups.
