Ole Miss offense on record-breaking pace
Ole Miss made history Saturday by beating Alabama in back-to-back games for the first time ever, but the Rebels are leaving their mark in another way, as well.
The Rebels offense scored 43 points in their win over the Crimson Tide after scoring 76 points against Tennessee Martin and 73 points against Fresno State, bringing Ole Miss’ point total to 192 points this season. Through three games, that’s the third-most in college football history.
Ole Miss has already scored 26 touchdowns this year and needs 29 more to tie the school record for most touchdowns in a season.
If the Rebels break that record, chances are they will also take a run at the program’s single-season points scored mark of 442, set in 2003. Ole Miss will have to average 27.8 points per game to reach that number before the end of the regular season, but the Rebels could possibly have two additional games (the SEC Championship and/or a bowl game) to help break the record.
