TV: SEC Network

Two things to watch for, four keys to an Ole Miss victory and seven bold and absurd predictions for Saturday’s game versus Wofford.

2 Things To Watch

1. Who Goes In When Kelly’s Work Is Done?

Ole Miss fans could and should get the first glimpse of their future quarterbacks Saturday. The Rebels ought to jump on Wofford early, meaning it should be a short day for the starters. Will it be redshirt freshman Jason Pellerin or true freshman Shea Patterson to direct the first drive once Chad Kelly leaves the game? Will both play? How much will they play? Patterson was the nation’s top-rated high school QB in the 2016 class and the anticipation to see him work the Rebel offense for the first time is high. Hugh Freeze said he and Patterson would sit down and have a conversation about things Friday (today). Neither Patterson nor Pellerin played Monday night versus Florida State. They remain listed as co-No. 2’s on this week’s depth chart.

Ole Miss didn’t get the results it wanted on Monday night, but the Rebels had the nation’s attention.

The matchup between No. 4 Florida State and No. 11 Ole Miss set an ESPN record with 854,000 unique views and 59 million minutes watched, the most for a regular season college football game ever. This included all platforms, including mobile, tablet and television streaming services.

The Camping World Kickoff beat the record set just a night before, when No. 10 Notre Dame and Texas kicked off in Austin. The Rebels game also posted a 5.3 overnight rating on ESPN, including 10 rating or higher in nine markets. In all, ESPN estimates over eight million people watched Ole Miss-Florida State on Monday night.

Ole Miss Football: Wofford is Exactly What the Rebels Need

Facing the Wofford Terriers presents a new set of challenges. But Wofford may be exactly what the Rebels need to get back on their feet.

The Wofford Terriers are not the Florida State Seminoles. However to be honest with you, I’m glad they are not. Although I still believe we would have beaten the Seminoles if we had not had the two season ending injuries that completely changed our game plan, that game took a lot out of the team and the fans.

Wofford presents a different set of challenges than the Seminoles. The Terriers are a triple option team that relies nearly completely on runs. Passing is done basically to throw a wrinkle in the offense. However, it is not used as a realistic threat. Therefore, this may be just what the doctor ordered.

In-state linebacker drops commitment to Mississippi State

Perhaps suffering some residual impact, Dan Mullen’s program also lost a verbal commitment on Thursday evening.

J.J. Russell — an in-state linebacker from Grenada, Miss. — reneged on his Mississippi State pledge via Twitter. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound outside linebacker initially committed to the Bulldogs on June 18.
