Ole Miss let one get away Saturday as the Rebels fell to South Carolina 48-44 after leading 44-34 just after the start of the fourth quarter.
The loss dropped the Rebels to 5-4 on the season, with a 1-4 league mark, after a strong start to the 2018 season. Despite putting up 616 yards of offense and having only one turnover in the game, the Rebels couldn’t find enough stops or enough offense in the final quarter to come away with a win.
Jordan Ta’amu threw for 379 yards in this game, completing 31 of 46 passes but the Rebels surrendered 363 passing yards and 147 rushing yards on 37 carries.
Following the game, Matt Luke met with the media and discussed the “tough, tough” loss to the Gamecocks:
Next week, Ole Miss travels to College Station to play a Texas A&M team (5-4 on the season) coming off back-to-back SEC losses.
