Challenges for Ole Miss

When you think about Mike Leach, the first thing that comes to mind, other than his very zany comments, is passing. Every team Leach has coached has thrown the ball well and thrown almost exclusively. This Mississippi State team is no different. The Bulldogs, behind quarterback Will Roger’s arm, are putting up about 380 yards per game through the air. the Rebels have to figure out how to limit Roger’s passing success or it could be a rough going in Starkville.

Thursday‘s game kicks off at 6:30 PM CT (7:30 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
