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
