Challenges for Kentucky
Ole Miss, first off, is a threat to block punts and kicks. They have four of those so far this season. Lane Kiffin has always had an explosive offense but this season he’s got a solid defense to go along with that offense. The Rebels are allowing just ten points a contest. The Rebel quarterback is Jaxson Dart. So far this season he’s 51 of 82 passes for 697 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. In Dart’s most recent outing against Tulsa he completed 13 of 24 passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns. Wide receiver Malik Heath, a transfer from Mississippi State, has 13 receptions for 220 yards and three touchdowns. Ole Miss has a strong running game. Running backs Quinshon Judkins (429 yds, 5 TDs), and Zach Evans (365 yds, 4 TDs) along with Dart (201 yds, 4 TDs) are the Ole Miss rushing leaders. Defensively, Ole Miss has four different players that have made interceptions including Miles Battle, A.J. Finley, Dashoun Jerkins, and Isheem Young. Linebacker Troy Brown leads the Rebels in tackles averaging 7.2 a game. Brown has also broken up two passes.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
