Ole Miss Landshark defense in top form against LSU’s Fournette

In its quest to shut down LSU’s star running back Leonard Fournette, Ole Miss (8-3, 5-2 Southeastern Conference) looked to a mixture of veterans and new faces, all of whom were hyped for prime-time action Saturday afternoon.

The Landshark defense stuffed Fournette time and time again, limiting him to a total of 108 yards on 25 carries, an average of 4.3 yards per carry. Perhaps the Rebels’ coaching staff took a look at how both Alabama and Arkansas were able to limit Fournette to under 100 yards in their games against the Tigers this season.

When facing Fournette, both Alabama and Arkansas sent a line of troops towards the 6-foot-1, 230-pound running back, and his offensive line could do little to stop the attack. In Saturday afternoon’s SEC battle in Oxford, Ole Miss did much the same thing, and it worked to perfection as the entire Tigers’ offense folded right in front of head coach Les Miles and the 60,705 fans inside Vaught-Hemingway.

And the Landshark defense loved every minute of the Rebels’ 38-17 Magnolia Bowl victory.

“Defensively, I thought for the first 29 minutes we were absolutely excellent. We stopped a really good run team,” Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze said. “We gave them a little bit of momentum before the half. They had the explosive run that gave them a field goal, then the kickoff was fumbled.”

Chad Kelly excited about Egg Bowl matchup, not worried about cowbells

This Saturday when Ole Miss (8-3, 5-2 SEC) takes on Mississippi State in the annual Egg Bowl, Rebels’ quarterback Chad Kelly will be visiting Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field for the first time in his career.

Though he has heard a lot about the rivalry, he has yet to experience it for himself.

Kelly is familiar with Bulldogs’ quarterback Dak Prescott; both quarterbacks were together during the Manning Passing Academy camp over the summer. The Rebels’ quarterback is currently the top leader in passing yards (3,504) in the Southeastern Conference, while Prescott is right behind him at 3,159.

Kelly has seen what the Bulldogs (8-3, 4-3) are capable of doing on both sides of the football and is pumped for the opportunity to be part of such a game. But the Buffalo, New York native is not particularly familiar with some of the traditions of the Egg Bowl.
