Ole Miss’ September schedule doesn’t get any easier in Week 4.

For the third time in four weeks, the Rebels will take on one of the nation’s top teams in No. 12 Georgia.

After dropping the season opener against Florida State and falling to Alabama at home last week, coach Hugh Freeze knows his team is up for another challenge. The added difficulty to this contest: It kicks off at noon ET.

“It’s a challenge,” Freeze said of playing a noon. “It’s not something that you can’t accomplish. We have to attack the week right with a positive mindset, provide great energy to our team. Eleven o’clock is a little different animal playing Georgia who is a top-15, top-12 team is another great challenge. Our September has been filled with that. While it is disappointing, life if disappointing at times and it’s what you make of it after those disappointments.”

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said Wednesday during his weekly press conference that wide receiver Donte Moncrief will miss the next four to six weeks with injury.

Moncrief, according to Pagano, has a fractured shoulder blade. Moncrief’s injury occurred Sunday during the first quarter of the Colts 34-20 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Georgia the perfect bounceback opponent for Ole Miss

Three games into the season and Ole Miss has seen two 21-point leads turn into losses. The Rebels are in a must-win situation in conference play with Georgia coming to Oxford. But don’t worry Rebels fans: The Bulldogs are the perfect bounceback opponent for your team.

Here’s why.

When you look at the two Ole Miss losses this month, similarities beyond the obvious emerge.

One, FSU and Alabama never gave up on their run games. The Seminoles and Tide both had more than 40 rush attempts and continued to pound away at Ole Miss’ defense.

Georgia readying for ‘rodeo bull rider’ quarterback in Chad Kelly

Georgia faced Drew Lock last week and he threw for 376 yards and three TDs. This week, the Bulldogs faced Chad Kelly, who is a threat with both his arm and his legs.

Kelly has thrown for 953 yards and 10 touchdowns in three games this season; he leads the SEC in TD passes and is second in yardage (to Lock). But unlike Lock, who has rushed for 39 yards, Kelly is a legitimate running threat. He ran for 500 yards and 10 TDs last season, but has rushed for just 71 yards this season. Georgia needs to make sure this isn’t a breakout game on the ground for Kelly.

“This kid is willing to do that,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said of Kelly being a running threat. “I actually think he enjoys it sometimes because he’s like a linebacker playing quarterback. He’s a little bit a rodeo bull rider. This guy will do anything and he’s good at it. Trust me, I know from experience. He’s good.”
