The Ole Miss Rebels finally have a chance to breathe when they face New Mexico State on Saturday.
Ole Miss dropped from No. 3 in the AP Top 25 rankings to No. 14 after a 38-10 loss to the Florida Gators in the Swamp. Florida jumped from No. 25 to No. 11 after the game, and all of the attention went to Jim McElwain and his team.
But what about the Rebels? Just because they lost to Florida doesn’t mean they’re not good. They still have more than few likely first-round draft picks, and Hugh Freeze can still lead them to the College Football Playoff if everything lines up for them.
Don’t count out Ole Miss. The Rebels are still relevant, and they released a hype video to let everyone know they’re not going away.
If there is one thing I’ve learned, it’s never count out a big-time Southeastern Conference team. Watch Freeze coach his team back to the top before it’s all said and done.
