Chad Kelly uncharacteristically bad on deep passes in loss to Arkansas
Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly is considered one of the best at throwing long passes in the SEC, if not all of college football. In the Rebels’ 34-30 loss to Arkansas, however, he was as sharp as he typically is.
Kelly entered Saturday’s matchup as college football’s leader in deep adjusted completion percentage, according to Pro Football Focus. Against Arkansas, Kelly failed to complete any of his eight deep passes, which hurt the Rebels’ ability to make explosive plays in the passing game.

For those who are curious, Pro Football Focus defines deep passes as those that travel 20 yards or more in the air. Kelly and the Rebels will face another tough task next weekend when they head to LSU for a 9:00 p.m. ET kickoff.
