Lane Kiffin officially names starting QB for Ole Miss
Ole Miss escaped with a 35-27 win over visiting Tulsa on Saturday.
Through the opening 3 games of the season, Lane Kiffin had not officially named a starting quarterback for the No. 16 Rebels.
Against the Golden Hurricane on Saturday, USC transfer Jaxson Dart went the whole way under center for Mississippi.
He completed 13-of-24 passes for 154 yards and 2 touchdowns, while adding 116 rushing yards on 13 carries.
After the victory while speaking to the media, Rebels coach Lane Kiffin offered an update on the quarterback competition between Dart and sophomore Luke Altmyer.
“We have a plan right now with Luke,” Kiffin said. “We sat down with him and his family. … he’s our backup quarterback, so we’re on the same page.”
