Ole Miss’ star-riddled 2013 recruiting class has a year of experience under its belt, and Thursday’s victory was its first chance to show what it learned from last season.

Laquon Treadwell, Robert Nkemdiche, Tony Conner and others showed there won’t be a sophomore slump in Oxford this season. Here’s a breakdown of how the Rebels’ 2013 recruits fared against Boise State:

    • Quincy Adeboyejo: Adeboyejo caught two passes against Boise State, including a 31-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to extend the Ole Miss lead to 21-6. He was one of four sophomores to catch a pass Thursday night (seven Rebels caught passes in all).
    • Tony Conner: Conner followed up his freshman All-America season in 2013 by recording an interception in his first game of 2014. He was involved in both the run and the pass game, recording six tackles for the game including a tackle for loss.
    • Mark Dodson: Dodson had seven touches for 42 total yards, including a team-high 27 yards rushing. His 19-yard touchdown run up the middle late in the fourth quarter was the final nail in the coffin, putting Ole Miss up 35-13 with less than three minutes to play.
    • Evan Engram: Engram is still listed as a tight end, but he could have been confused for some of the Rebels’ larger receivers at times against Boise State. He followed up his second team All-SEC campaign with four receptions for 41 yards against the Broncos, but did not catch one of Bo Wallace’s four touchdown passes.
    • Robert Nkemdiche: Nkemdiche made his presence known early in the season opener, laying a hit on Broncos quarterback Grant Hedrick in his first series of the game, then batting a pass that the Rebels intercepted in his second series. He finished the game with just three tackles, but his impact went far beyond the stat sheet.
    • Laquon Treadwell: Treadwell led Ole Miss in receptions Thursday just as he did as a freshman in 2013. He ended the game with seven catches for 105 yards and a 14-yard touchdown, recording his first career 100-yard game.
    • Laremy Tunsil: Tunsil played like a bookend left tackle protecting Wallace’s blindside against the Broncos. Once the Ole Miss offense finally kicked into high gear, Boise began avoiding him all together, proving just how dominant he was on the left side.
