The Ole Miss Rebels will get a break against the 0-8 New Mexico State Aggies as they have been forced to play some tough SEC opponents. The New Mexico State Aggies have been historically bad on the defensive side of the ball this season as they are allowing an average of 42.4 PPG, and things won’t lighten up on the road against the SEC Rebels. Ole Miss has a freshman QB under center who has been thrown into the fire in SEC play, but he has shown flashes of excellence as he has run for 600 yards and 5 TDs. New Mexico State has not had as much success with the QB position as Josh Adkins has thrown 9 TDs compared to 14 interceptions, and while the Rebels have not been good on the defensive side of the ball, they should have no problem turning the ball over here.
