Willie Fritz understands what Tulane is up against this week at Ole Miss. The Tulane coach is aware of the Rebels offense, and the necessity for the Green Wave to put up points, and contain QB Matt Corral as much as possible.

Ole Miss is second in the SEC averaging 599.5 yards per game.

“We always want to try to get some pressure but sometimes we got to rush 3 sometimes 4,” he said, per OM Spirit. “Sometimes you sell the farm and try to bring more than they got to block. He (Matt Corral) sits back there and pats the ball. We’ve got to be really, really good in coverage, both underneath and over the top.”

Tulane lost its opener at Oklahoma 40-35 in a game that was moved because of Hurricane Ida. Last week, the Green Wave beat Morgan State 69-20.

“I think we’re gonna have to score some points,” Fritz said. “There’s no question about it. We have to do a good job controlling the ball. It looks like they’ve changed up quite a bit from what they did last year, defensively. They’re doing a little bit more than the high three, safety type look – Iowa State has had a lot of success with that. They may have visited with them, I don’t know.”
