Rebels do it again, break 70 in rout of Fresno State
There’s no slowing Ole Miss.
The Rebels must think they’re driving on the Autobahn because they broke 70 again today.
The final damage: Ole Miss 73, Fresno State 21.
That’s one week after dumping 76 in a win over Tennessee-Martin.
For the non-mathletes out there, that’s 149 points in two games (74.5-point average).

Ole Miss scored 28 points in the first quarter and never decelerated despite giving backup quarterbacks a chance to gain experience.
Ole Miss' 28 first quarter points are the most in modern history. Rebels had 27 last week vs. UT Martin #HottyToddy

And just think, the Rebels don’t have their best offensive lineman.
Laremy Tunsil sat out for the second consecutive game during an NCAA investigation, but new quarterback Chad Kelly is off to an amazing start.
Playing what probably was about three quarters, Kelly was 19-of-24 for 340 yards and four touchdowns.
BTW, he also ran for a score.
I know it's early but Ole Miss looks good with Chad Kelly.

Quincy Adeboyejo was open more than Waffle House and finished with five catches, 118 yards and three scores. All in the first half.
And Laquon Treadwell looks strong coming back from that horrific leg injury.
He caught four passes last week and had five in today’s game for 73 yards.
Treadwell and Adeboyejo also have had plenty of help from Cody Core, who had six catches for 96 yards and one touchdown.
The Rebels should enjoy it while they can.
They play at Alabama next week.
