The battle at the quarterback position at Ole Miss started in the spring after the departure of Matt Corral to the NFL and still isn’t fully over yet. But according to Rebels head coach Lane Kiffin, the team is close to making a decision.

When Kiffin met with reporters this week, he said a decision would be made soon as to who gets the starting position. He also provided an update on quarterback Luke Altmyer, who sustained an injury during the win over Central Arkansas.

“He was out there today,” Kiffin said of Altmyer. “I think he’ll be alright. We’re just going to push forward the way we’ve been going. We’ll figure out who goes first at some point later in the week.”

Kiffin seemed pleased with what went right for both passers, but sees areas of improvement for both as well.

“Both guys did some good things,” Kiffin said. Both guys have some things to improve on.”

In the latest matchup against the Bears, Altmyer completed 6-of-13 passes for 90 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Dart was 10-of-15 passing for 182 yards with two touchdowns.

It will be interesting to see who ultimately gets the nod.
