Gosh almighty, that defense is good.
As it has done all season, the No. 3 Ole Miss football team displayed an impressive performance en route to a victory, and as has been the case throughout the year, it was the the Rebels’ famed “Landshark” defense that shined brightest. Holding the visiting Tennessee Volunteers to zero yards rushing, Ole Miss cruised to a 34-3 victory and improved to 7-0 on the year and 4-0 in the Southeastern Conference.
Playing in front of the third-largest crowd in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium’s history (62,081), Ole Miss forced four turnovers and a turnover on downs. Individually, cornerback Senquez Golson continued his fantastic senior campaign by picking off two passes, giving him seven on the year, which is tied for the fourth most in single-season program history. Similarly, defensive end Marquis Haynes continued his fantastic freshman campaign with 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble, his third of the year, and a fumble recovery.
On offense, senior quarterback Bo Wallace threw for 199 yards, two touchdowns and no turnovers, and the Rebels outgained the Vols 383-191 yards. Junior running back Jaylen Walton led Ole Miss on the ground with 60 yards and one touchdown, while sophomore wide receiver Vince Sanders paced the Rebels through the air with 108 yards receiving and one touchdown. It was the second 100-yard performance for Sanders this season.
