Following last Saturday’s 31-6 win over Vanderbilt, the Ole Miss Rebels will now shift their focus to Missouri.
The Rebels march into Missouri Saturday night in search of their third SEC win of the season. In their win against Vanderbilt, the Ole Miss run game essentially did what they pleased, rushing for more than 400 yards and four touchdowns.
Head Coach Matt Luke explains that while the Rebels ran with ease last weekend, this week should be different as Missouri has one of the more impressive run defenses in the SEC. “They play a little bit closer to Auburn, you know guys that we play every year, as far as penetrators, guys that move, they don’t sit in whole point very much. These guys are moving constantly and they’re very, very quick and very, very good. They show up at a bunch of different spots. I’ve been impressed watching those and they get in the backfield and create negative plays quite a bit.”
