Volume Vulnerability

The key to playing in a large and hostile environment is early success.

After the Rebels survived an LSU drive with an end zone fumble recovery I thought the Rebels were about to have some of that early success much the way they did at Texas A&M.

It didn’t work out that way.

Ole Miss defensive lineman talks about the Tiger Stadium volume here and how that affected defensive alignment early in the game.

The Rebels were better against the LSU run game in the second half. Ultimately, the Tigers had a fresh back against a defense that had been on the field way too long, and that was pivotal in the fourth quarter.

Here’s Bennett:

The crowd will be in Ole Miss’ favor this week. The Rebels will have to not only make sure they’re lined up correctly but that they stay assignment sound after the ball is snapped.

Bennett says Auburn’s style of offense¬†is a little more to the Rebels’ liking.

Bennett: ¬†“We have to continue to put our will on their offense, make sure we get lined up, get our checks. We know Auburn runs a little up-tempo, we’re used to that playing our offense. It’s just that we have to be ready. We can’t wait for the game Saturday.”
