3 things every Ole Miss fan needs to know today
Happy Sunday, everyone.
A week after a blowout loss to Florida, the Ole Miss faithful at The Grove for homecoming left happy as the Rebels rebounded at home to beat New Mexico State, 52-3.
But for Ole Miss fans who didn’t catch the action Saturday, here is what you missed:
- Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell had another big Saturday, catching eight passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns. But no reception was more impressive than his one-handed touchdown grab in the third quarter.
- It wasn’t just a great day for Treadwell Saturday. Quarterback Chad Kelly threw for 384 yards as he eclipsed the 300-yard mark for the fourth time this season. That ties the single-season Ole Miss record.
- Speaking of broken records, Ole Miss continues to say that a decision in the Laremy Tunsil investigation is coming soon. The Rebels expect an announcement on his eligibility next week.
