Five take-aways from Ole Miss’ 27-19 win over Auburn …
Treadwell brought the pain: Player comments on Monday are sometimes overblown. Laquon Treadwell was more interesting in just winning the game than any kind of emotional response for Auburn. He did what he did today because he’s a great player and because Auburn finally provided a couple of opportunities.
Secondary just OK: Ole Miss was really good in the secondary last week, so good you left wondering how much was the Rebels and how much was a wounded Texas A&M quarterback Kyle Allen. Usually the truth is in the middle. An Auburn passing game that has been average at best passed for 303 yards and averaged 23.2 yards per completion. It wasn’t a terrible game for Ole Miss. The Rebels allowed just a 42.8 completion percentage for Sean White, but Auburn receivers got open behind Ole Miss defenders too many times.
Here’s Hugh Freeze:
Run game strong again: And again it was against a defense that has struggled in that regard. Still it was a solid 1-2 punch with Jaylen Walton (3.9 ypc) and Akeem Judd (6.8 ypc) whose 25-yard touchdown run was a burst not seen previously. Judd had the hot hand today and may have passed Jordan Wilkins for No. 2 in the rotation.
Marquis Haynes big again: The reigning SEC defensive lineman of the week could very well win the award a second straight time. Haynes finished with six tackles, two sacks, three tackles for loss and a pressure.
