The No. 18 Ole Miss Rebels dominated the Wofford Terriers in front of sold out crowd winning 38-13.
It was the first meeting between the two football programs.
The Rebels were looking to redeem itself from a tough loss against Florida State last week in Orlando.
Coach Hugh Freeze said the team came to play.
“Our kids came out with an edge,” Freeze said. “To take control of the game especially on offense. On defense, I thought we did really well early on.”
Coach Freeze said he was glad to see Quarterback Chad Kelly get back to his winning ways.
“He had a pretty solid day,” Freeze said. “He needed to get back to the way he was the last seven games of the season.
With Alabama around the corner, Freeze says it’s hard to know the true talent of a team this early in the season.
“On tape, they look fast,” Freeze said. We’ve got our hands full, but we’ve not been afraid to take them on before. I have great respect for them.”
Alabama plays at Vaught-Hemingway stadium next Saturday, September 17.
The Rebels opened the 2016 home season in the largest stadium in Mississippi with a new playing surface, video boards, and a bowled-in north end zone.
The game marked a record crowd of 64,232.
