Ole Miss’s offense actually had 0 net yards in the third quarter and once again, only scored three points in the second half of the game. This is pathetic stats considering the competition. I do not want to take anything away from Tulane, but this Green Wave team should not have been able to shut the Rebels down like the did in the second half.
The Rebel defense was once again terrible in the second half. If it weren’t for Tulane self-destructing at several points in the game, this could be loss number two for Ole Miss. I hate to be pessimistic, but Jacksonville State and Tulane are two of the easiest contests on the Rebel’s schedule this year; it doesn’t get any easier. In fact, the level of competition is about to jump to an entirely different level.
