The Rebels hope to be feeling better for this game against the Bulldogs. They were sick in the last game when they were trounced by the Missouri Tigers. Bo Wallace threw for 244 yards and an interception, but was battling an illness for much of the game and struggled during the second half. The Tigers' used a deep running back rotation to slowly wear down the Ole Miss defense. Josey had most of the big plays, but Russell Hansbrough and Murphy combined for 99 more yards, helping Missouri shorten the game in the second half with time-consuming drives. This is the recipe to beat the Rebels.
It is only a matter of time before the Bulldogs try this method, but it is unclear if they will be able to succeed. We will find out for sure when they meet on Thursday night.
