|NEXT OPPONENT||@UT CHATTANOOGA|
Shea Patterson broke the Ole Miss record for All Time Passing yards in a game with 489 yards in route to beating UT Martin at home. He was 32 of 43 on the day with 5 TD and 1 interception. He looked like a future 1st rounder as he dropped dimes all over the field saturday.
GAME RECAP AND ANALYSIS
Ole Miss fans woke up today expecting a blow out win and to see many of the back ups get valuable game time reps. That was not the case as UT Martin led the Rebels until right before half time.
Gary Wunderlich continued his rocky start to his senior season as he missed his first field goal attempt of the day. He finished 1/2 on the day.
Ole Miss’s offense looks unstoppable when they are on. Other times, they look very average. AJ Brown had another explosive game with 156 yards on 8 receptions with 2 touchdowns. Damarkus Lodge had 133 yards on 6 catches with 1 touchdown, Jordan Wilkins and DK Metcalf rounded out the touchdown category, each hauling in 1 a piece.
The Landsharks are still no where to be found. The defense the Ole Miss fans came to love 2 years ago is not back. The big plays have been limited, but the tackling is still almost non existent as they allowed UT Martins running back Ladarius Galloway 188 yards on 24 attempts. He averaged 7.8 yards a carry. That is still a problem. The Skyhawks only managed 115 yards through the air, but that may be more related to their success on the ground. The standouts for the defense would have to be Damarquis Gates, Victor Evans, Donta Evans.
