Some Rapid Reaction here. Hugh Freeze and more video to come.
The Cajuns have kicked a couple of short field goals, the latter in the final seconds after a Bo Wallace interception.
I had stepped away from the game for a bit, thinking I was about to see at worst a long field goal attempt by Ole Miss, and did not see the interception. I’m told it was intended for Cody Core and was not a bad decision on Wallace’s part.
It’s the only blemish on an otherwise dominant first half for the Ole Miss offense.
Wallace is 20-for-24 for 290 yards, 3 TDs and 1 interception.
The receiver of choice has been Vince Sanders, who has eight catches for 125 yards and two touchdowns.
Laquon Treadwell has three catches for 36 yards with a long of 30.
The Rebels are still struggling to run the ball, although I’Tavius Mathers did bounce one to the left, break a tackle and run 56 yards for a score. With that 56-yard play the Rebels still have just 71 rushing yards on 15 attempts.
The passing game has been very good. Wallace hasn’t faced a lot of pressure.
ULL was down only 7-0 when it drove to the Ole Miss 12 but running back Alonzo Harris fumbled after a 6-yard gain. Trae Elston got the force and the recovery.
The Cajuns got a lot done with the run game on that drive as Ole Miss hard on the fakes. ULL got 73 of its 105 rushing yards on that drive.
Ole Miss made some adjustments and played the run better, but just as important was the lead expanded and ULL has had to force more.
