Ole Miss football still fighting

It’s been a season of highs and lows for Gulfport native Matt Luke as the Ole Miss interim head football coach, but amidst all the adversity his team has consistently responded with a great deal of resolve.
That’s thanks in large part to this senior class of 2018 refusing to let the Rebels quit, despite the self-imposed post-season ban. On Saturday, Ole Miss strung together consecutive wins for the first time since the first two weeks of the season with its 50-22 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette.
The Rebels now ride that two-game streak into senior night versus Texas A&M where Coach Luke is already preparing for what’s sure to be an emotional farewell. “Just what they’ve been involved in, and maybe the top 3 offenses in school history this senior class has been a part of. Two New Year’s Six games, and obviously they’re the most affected by this year with the bowl ban. They didn’t have the opportunity to go to a bowl but they’ve continued to fight, fight through injuries. Just grateful to these guys and it will be an emotional senior night, and just really want to go out there and perform well for this group of seniors.”
Ole Miss will kick things off versus the Aggies at 6 p.m. on Saturday from Vaught Hemingway Stadium in Oxford on ESPN 2.
