Series: Tennessee leads 44-19-1

Coaches: Tennessee – Butch Jones 58-37, 8th season, 8-10 second season at Tennessee. Ole Miss – Hugh Freeze, 51-18, sixth season overall; 21-11 second season at Ole Miss.

Statistical Leaders: Tennessee – RB Jalen Hurd 84-374, 2 TD. QB Justin Worley 138-for-218 passing, 1,388 yards, 12 TD, 5 INT. WR Marquez North 25 catches, 240 yards, 4 TD. LB A.J.

Notes: It’s homecoming for Ole Miss. … The Vols two SEC losses to Georgia and Florida have come by a combined four points. … Ole Miss is going for its fourth SEC win. That would guarantee a break-even season in SEC play, the Rebels first under Freeze. … Tennessee has lost its last seven games against SEC West opponents.

Summing it up: They do a solid job. They’re in the right places. I always watch a big-play reel. They don’t give up explosive plays.” – Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze on the Tennessee defense

Prediction: Ole Miss 35, Tennessee 17
