Ole Miss flexed its offensive muscles throughout a 48-20 rout of Oklahoma State in the Sugar Bowl Friday night in New Orleans.
As you might have expected, the alumni couldn’t be prouder.
Former Ole Miss wide receiver Donte Moncrief got a kick out of the offensive line’s play — particularly that of potential first-round pick Laremy Tunsil, who scored a touchdown in the game on an entertaining trick play.
“Laremy Just Ran Off On The Plug Twice,” Moncrief tweeted. “Offensive Lineman Turnt… Squad Goals..”
Moncrief could be crossing his fingers that his Indianapolis Colts land Tunsil in the upcoming NFL Draft.
Former Ole Miss and New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister had many Rebels alumni on his turf for the game.
McAllister raved about his alma mater’s performance, putting on a show in his new hometown.
“How SWEET it is,” McAllister cleverly tweeted.
Brittney Reese, a former Rebels track star and two-time Olympian, is used to seeing things go by quickly, but maybe not the score in the Sugar Bowl.
You can bet Reese was impressed with Ole Miss doing just that on Friday night after tweeting “So proud of my Rebels.”
Former Ole Miss basketball standout Marshall Henderson is apparently a huge fan of Rebels quarterback Chad Kelly.
Kelly lighting up the Oklahoma State defense and continuing his late-season tear drew Henderson’s attention, as he tweeted “WATCH HOW I TOUCHDOWNNNNNN.”
