Ole Miss unveils uniform combo for Saturday's clash with Mizzou
Off to a strong 2-1 start in SEC play, the Ole Miss Rebels (3-3) are looking to extend their winning streak to two games in Saturday’s battle with Missouri (4-1).
As they do on a weekly basis, the program’s official Twitter account unveiled the Rebels’ uniform combination on Friday:
Routing the Vanderbilt Commodores (1-4), 31-6, on October 5, Ole Miss racked up 512 total yards. With 413 of these yards coming on the ground, this is exactly how offensive coordinator Rich Rodriguez’s power-spread scheme is designed to work.
Stepping into the starting quarterback role, freshman John Rhys Plumlee led the charge against the Commodores with 165 yards. Fellow freshman Jerrion Ealy added 97 yards on just four touches.
Missouri, meanwhile, has been stout against the run. Allowing a total of 444 rushing yards in their five games, the Tigers are surrendering just 86.8 yards per contest.
With Ole Miss likely being the best offense the Tigers have faced thus far, this is a classic case of “something has to give.”
Saturday’s action from Memorial Stadium in Columbia will kick at 7:00PM ET and be televised on ESPN2.
