Streak Watch: Landshark defense extends streak of takeaways
The Ole Miss Rebels and their vaunted Landshark defense forced a turnover for a 30th straight game in their 34-3 win over Tennessee in Oxford on Saturday. The streak dates back to the 2012 season and is the second-longest active streak among FBS teams.
