Ole Miss vs Texas Tech: You should know
Strength vs Weakness: Ole Miss’ offense is fueled by an ultra-dynamic rushing attack led by Quinshon Judkins. The freshman has 1,474 yards and 16 touchdowns, and has gone north of 100 yards eight times in his first season in Oxford. Fellow running back Zach Evans (who may declare for the NFL Draft) and quarterback Jaxson Dart are each over 500 yards on the ground this year as well. They will face a Red Raiders defense that ranks 90th nationally in rushing defense at 166.42 yards per game.
Texas Tech still capable on offense: It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Texas Tech can broadcast it all over the field. The Red Raiders finished the season ranked 12th nationally with 307 passing yards per game despite starting three different quarterbacks. Tyler Shough started each of the last three games and had a 463-yard performance against Oklahoma in the regular season finale. He will get the nod after Donovan Smith was transferred and with Behren Morton nursing an ankle injury.
The Lane Kiffin Factor: The Rebels’ head coach was rumored to be leaving town during the final month of the season after Auburn fired Bryan Hars, a move that continued on his staff until the end of the regular season. Was this a distraction for the players? There is no way to know. Kiffin, though signed an extension last month which cemented him as the head coach of the Rebels. That stability could go a long way toward helping the Rebels break out of their late-season funk.
