Ole Miss is a young team, and that inexperience showed throughout the season. Against Georgia Tech, though, the whippersnappers came to play.
Sophomore defensive tackle Issac Gross tied for the team high with eight tackles and led the team with three tackles for loss. Freshman defensive back Tony Conner tallied seven tackles, including one for loss.
Georgia Tech rendered true freshman receiver Laquon Treadwell ineffective during the first half. However, he caught five passes for 51 yards, including a crucial third-down reception as the fourth quarter came to a close.
Sophomore Mike Hilton forced a fumble that led to an Ole Miss touchdown, and though freshman Robert Nkemdiche was suspended for the first quarter, the former No. 1 overall prospect notched five tackles.
Headlined by the aforementioned players and currently injured lineman Laremy Tunsil, the Rebels certainly have a bright future.
