Ole Miss senior linebacker Keith Lewis looks like he's pumped to be back on the field for the Rebels.

In the first quarter of their opener against the Boise State Broncos, Lewis made a big hit in the open field on running back Jay Ajayi to force a fourth down.

The hit was an early statement for Lewis and the rest of the defense as they look to help Ole Miss make a run in the SEC this year.
