Five Take-Aways from Fresno State

-Chad Kelly is the starter. If there was ever a doubt there is no more. I would expect DeVante Kincade to have a package moving forward, but Ole Miss won’t be able to take its best quarterback off the field as much against Alabama as it has the last two weeks.

-Ole Miss players talked in August about this defense being better than last year’s. I’ve not seen that in the first two games. Fresno scored a defensive touchdown and scored one against a lot of Ole Miss reserves in the second half, but the Bulldogs rushed for 163 yards. Ole Miss has been good on defense but not dominant.

-The offensive line performed well for the second straight week. I think this unit is better even without Laremy Tunsil. Obviously he would take the group to another level.

-It was a huge game for wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo with five catches for 120 yards and three touchdowns. Collectively the receivers caught well and limited drops. Very good for a group that was called out in spring drills

-Trae Elston returned a pick for a touchdown for the second straight week. Maybe he is this year’s Senquez Golson story.

    I believe I heard…that…the Rebels are the only SEC team EVER to have back to back games scoring 70 or more points.
    The Landsharks better step it up another level or two in the ‘stopping the run’ department because ‘Bama is going to go down hill on them if they don’t.
    Anyway, great win, plus everyone got to play. The Rebels must have the deepest receiver corps in college footall. UNbelievable.
    Great day to be a Rebel. Fins UP everybody!
