No top 10 teams lost this past weekend, and the poll is once again headlined by Alabama at No. 1. However, things get interesting after Alabama. Florida State jumped Clemson for the No. 2 spot this week.

Eight SEC teams are ranked this week, but only Alabama sits in the top 10. Georgia is the second highest ranked team at No. 13. The biggest mover this week? Arkansas jumped into the top 25 after an impressive performance against TCU Saturday night.

Chad Kelly Reflects Back To The ‘Tuscaloosa Tip’

Chad Kelly couldn’t have seen it unfold, as he was lying flat on his back. It is a play, however, that will haunt Alabama fans for seasons to come whenever Ole Miss week rolls around.

Leading 17-10 at the half, Ole Miss came out of the locker room last year in Tuscaloosa with the first possession of the third quarter. Five plays and 87 yards later that lead grew to 24-10 after a play that has become known in Rebel lexicon as the “Tuscaloosa Tip.”

Under pressure and falling to the ground, Kelly made a desperation heave to wide receiver Laquon Treadwell who was double covered. In any circumstance, it was an ill-advised throw, as Treadwell, bracketed by Crimson Tide defenders, had little chance to catch the football. He did, however, get a hand on it to tip it into the Tuscaloosa night, and the rest is history.

Tide to test Rebels’ trouble defending the pass

Three weeks in and it’s still too early to tell anything about Ole Miss’ pass defense.

That’s because the Rebels are still trying to figure out who will step in to replace Ken Webster, their top cover corner who was lost for the season to a knee injury on the first defensive possession of the year.

When No. 1 Alabama visits Oxford on Saturday to try and end a two-game skid against No. 19 Ole Miss, there is a lot to be determined.

Numbers say the Rebels are No. 7 in the SEC, allowing 245.5 passing yards per game. They’re 13th in the SEC in both 8.0 yards per attempt (8.0) and completion percentage (62.3) and are ranked No. 88 in the country in pass defense, as far as yards allowed.

The Ole Miss women’s golf team had an up-and-down first day to its 2016-17 season, shooting a collective 17-over par to take 11th place after 36 holes of the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate Championship.

The Rebels were off to a strong start, climbing to the top of the team leaderboard early in the day in Knoxville, Tenn. But a few mistakes compiled as the day rolled on, which head coach Kory Henkes hopes to clean up during the final 18 holes tomorrow at Cherokee Country Club.

“We started out strong today and everything was looking promising, then we just had a few mental errors that caused some costly mistakes, which were unfortunate,” Henkes said. “When we’re playing at this level against this kind of competition, you can’t afford to make those kind of mistakes, so we’ve got to get better at that moving forward.”

Individually, true freshman Pi-Lillebi Hermansson turned in a stellar start to her collegiate career. The Djursholm, Sweden native paced the Rebels, shooting a 1-over par 72 in Round 1 and a 1-under par 70 in Round 2 to land in seventh place on the leaderboard going into the final 18 holes.

“Pi had a great first two rounds of her college career,” Henkes said. “She fought back really hard in that second round. She had a few bogeys early on, but didn’t let that get to her, and really hung in there and made some really good birdies down the stretch. So we’re extremely proud of Pi. I think this is only the beginning. I think there’s a lot of golf ahead of her in her future.”

Hermansson totaled seven birdies on the day—four in the first round and three in the second—and closed the day with a birdie on the Par 5 11th hole.

“I haven’t competed in this heat before, “said Hermansson. “So I just focused on drinking a lot of water and taking it one shot at a time. I reached several par 5s in two shots and gave myself a lot birdie chances.”

Junior Laura Hoskin was second on the squad at 72-75—147, tying her for 35th. The Arrowtown, New Zealand native led all Rebels with 26 pars on the day—good for fifth in the tournament field. Sophomore Martina Flori wasn’t far behind with 24 pars. The sound performance has her tied for 48th (72-77—149).

Another newcomer, Mercer University transfer Katy Harris, was second among the Ole Miss quintet with six birdies. The junior encountered trouble on the fourth hole in the first round, hitting three shots out of bounds, but she recovered remarkably with four pars and a birdie over the next five holes.

She kept it going with the team’s second best score, a 73, in the second round. The next time around, she switched up her approach and made par on that troublesome fourth hole. Overall, her performance was indicative of that of her team’s: a great round if not for a few miscues.

“It was an extremely costly mistake, but other than that, she played a great first round at even par,” Henkes said. “Unfortunately, you count all of your shots and make them all count, so we’re going to do our best to come back tomorrow and minimize the mistakes and give it another go and finish with a great round tomorrow.”

The Rebels tee off at 8 a.m. CT tomorrow for the final 18-hole round.
