Challenges for Ole Miss

Will Rogers thrives in Mike Leach’s pinpoint passing offense. He’s one of just 10 players in SEC history to pass for over 10,000 yards. So far this season he’s completed 359 of 527 passes for 3,474 yards, 32 touchdowns and five interceptions. He is not a running threat. Rogers has at least one year of eligibility remaining.
