The Ole Miss Rebels had a crazy season in 2015. They finished with a 10-3 record but they seemed to beat teams they weren’t expected to beat and lose to teams they weren’t expected to lose to. The Rebels defeated teams like Alabama, LSU Miss. st. and Auburn while losing to teams like Memphis and Arkansas. No disrespect to those teams but Ole Miss had to be favored in those games.
Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly had a season that truly was Heisman worthy in 2015. He threw for 4,042 yards, ran for 500 yards amd totaled 41 TDs. Even with the loss of Laqoun Treadwell, If Kelly can continue this type of play in 2016, the Rebels could be looking at a historic season.
Notable 2016 games:
