Happy Thursday, Ole Miss fans!
The weekend is almost here, and before we know it, the Rebels will be kicking off Saturday against . Memphis. It’s a rivalry game that was renewed last season in Ole Miss’ 24-3 win over the Tigers, but this year’s game is bound to be closer.
Both teams enter with high-powered offenses, and coach Hugh Freeze has been very impressed with what he’s seen from Memphis this season.
Let’s get you caught up on all things Ole Miss:
- One of the main reasons Memphis has been so good offensively this season is because of their quarterback Paxton Lynch. In fact, Freeze said Lynch is one of the best quarterbacks Ole Miss will have faced in his tenure.
- ESPN NFL draft expert Todd McShay unveiled his top 32 prospects for April’s draft, and Ole Miss had two players in his top 10.
- Basketball season is right around the corner, and expectations are high once again for coach Andy Kennedy’s Ole Miss squad. The Rebels released a promo video Thursday to get you ready for the season.
