No. 24 Ole Miss Upset 30-22 by SEC Foe Auburn
No. 24 Ole Miss was the flavor of the month through the first few games of the season as a team in the SEC that could potentially take down the big boys and ruin a season or two.
The past two weeks have proven that is simply not the case.
The Rebels were destroyed by No. 1 Alabama two weeks ago 25-0 and then upset Saturday by an Auburn Tigers squad, 30-22.
Ole Miss amassed 464 yards of total offense but failed to actually score enough to pull away for the victory on the road. The Rebels now sit at 1-2 in SEC play and will fall out of the Top 25.
To be fair, it's not as if Auburn is a slouch of an opponent. The Tigers came into the matchup with a 3-1 record, with the only loss coming to an elite No. 6 LSU team.
Things are far from over for quarterback Bo Wallace and the Rebels, but the offensive line needs to play better against credible opposition for Ole Miss to get back into the thick of things in the SEC. Wallace threw for 336 yards with two touchdowns and interceptions, but was sacked a ridiculous six times.
Speaking of credible competition, Wallace and Co. now have a date with the aforementioned LSU Tigers next week, so things need to improve in a hurry if the Rebels are to make some noise in the SEC and get back into the realm of the ranked.
The upset at the hands of Auburn stings, but a shot at redemption is right around the corner.
