Coming off a record-setting 57-35 win over Vanderbilt, a pair of Rebels collected weekly honors from the Southeastern Conference, the league office announced Monday.
Senior Marquis Haynes was named SEC Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week after becoming Ole Miss’ modern-era leader in both sacks and tackles for loss. The defensive end from Jacksonville, Florida posted career highs of 3.5 TFLs and 3.0 sacks, as well as forcing two fumbles.
Haynes’ eight total tackles were one shy of his career best and second-most on the teams. With 29.0 career sacks, he passed Greg Hardy for the most by a Rebel since 1983. Haynes also moved ahead of Derrick Burgess for the modern-era lead in tackles for loss with 43.0.
Sophomore Shea Patterson earned Co-Offensive Player of the Week honors following his five-touchdown performance against Vanderbilt. Patterson completed 22-of-35 passes for 351 yards and four TDs through the air. He also powered his way into the end zone to record his first-career rushing TD.
Patterson’s efforts helped the Rebels pile up their second-most points ever in a SEC game, trailing only the 63 points against the Commodores in 1979. It was the second time this season Patterson has garnered SEC Offensive Player of the Week honors.
Ole Miss is back in action Saturday as the Rebels play host to No. 24/25 LSU. Kick is slated for 6:15 p.m. CT and will be televised on ESPN.
