Fans, media react to Arkansas' defense shutting out Lane Kiffin, Ole Miss in 1st half
Through the first three weeks of the SEC season, Ole Miss had one of the most high-powered offenses. The Rebels lit up the scoreboard against Florida, Kentucky and Alabama.
Against Arkansas, however, it’s a different story. Barry Odom’s Razorback defense has shut down Lane Kiffin’s Rebels offense for the first two quarters of Saturday’s game in Fayetteville. The Hogs lead 20-0, holding Ole Miss to 145 yards of offense. Arkansas’ defense is also up 3-0 in the turnover battle.
Ole Miss had not gone more than three possessions without scoring before today.
The Rebels had eight drives in the first half, counting the one-play possession before halftime.

Hunter Yurachek should convene the Waltons, Tysons and Joneses and find a way to give Barry Odom and Sam Pittman whatever the hell they want. This is absolutely remarkable.

IF something happens at DC for UF… UF fans that want Barry Odom, you better hope Bama's defense improves.

Barry Odom's Arkansas defense has been outstanding this year. The Razorbacks were 110th in FBS in total defense last year.

The last time Arkansas shut out an SEC opponent in the first half? Nov 22, 2014 vs. Ole Miss. Rohan Gaines had a 100 yard pick six.

Arkansas shutting out Ole Miss this week makes our defense look even worse.

Ole Miss: We scored 48 points against Bama. Arkansas should be an easy win.

Never thought I’d be envious of Arkansas’ defense.
