The Rebel Walk

After a close win over Vandy, Kelly and the Rebels set for Gators

Chad Kelly may not have had his best game at quarterback for third-ranked Ole Miss Saturday night against the confident Vanderbilt Commodores, but he delivered when it mattered most and the Rebels defeated Vandy 27-16 at Vaught-Hemingway in Oxford.

Early in the first quarter, Kelly found wide out Damore’ea Stringfellow for the 20-yard touchdown, which gave the Rebels (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) an early 7-3 lead. But his job was far from done. In the fourth quarter, after Vandy cut the Rebels’ lead to 20-16 off Tommy Openshaw’s 34-yard field goal, Ole Miss would look to Kelly to lead the offense on a game-sealing drive.

Kelly and the Rebels come through in the clutch

The junior college transfer from East Mississippi Community College took the Rebels on a pivotal 9-play, 80-yard drive late in the final quarter.

Kelly connected with wide receiver Laquon Treadwell for 15 yards to the Rebels’ 37, then found Markell Pack for a nine-yard catch.

After two big runs by senior running back Jaylen Walton, who rushed for 138 yards on 21 carries, Kelly rushed for 11 yards to Vanderbilt’s 3-yard line to set up Walton’s 3-yard rushing touchdown.

The Rebel Walk

Kelly eager to repeat success of past Ole Miss quarterbacks
At start of the 2015 college football season, all Chad Kelly had in mind was helping the University of Mississippi win football games.

Kelly knows what’s expected of him and has yet to feel the pressure of repeating the past success of Bo Wallace, despite playing in back-to-back close games against Alabama and Vanderbilt. Instead, Kelly is eager and determined to repeat the success of Wallace, who threw for 3,194 yards and 22 touchdowns and led the Rebels to a 9-4 record last season.

Kelly currently leads the Southeastern Conference in passing yards (1,219).
