It was a bad result, but there were still some great photos taken at Saturday’s game in Oxford.
DeMarkus Lodge of the Mississippi Rebels catches a touchdown pass during the second quarter while being defended by Juwuan Briscoe. Briscoe was actually in decent position. With a very good throw it didn’t matter.
Nick Chubb runs the ball during the first quarter. Notice the low center of gravity, then imagine trying to tackle him. Unless you play for Missouri or Ole Miss. Then you don’t really have to imagine it.
Isaac Nauta stiff-arms a Rebel defender on the way to a 16 yard gain. It was his only catch of the day. Sigh.
Quincy Adeboyejo of the Mississippi Rebels has a pass knocked away by Juwuan Briscoe, who I thought actually played much better this week in coverage.
Ole Miss tight end Evan Ingram snatches a touchdown pass over Quincy Mauger.
Brian Herrien out of freakin’ nowhere.
Brian Herrien into the end zone. The freshman from Douglasville ran with great vision and patience, which is a great sign for the future.
One difference between this week and last week against Missouri? Even elite receiver Christian Payne couldn’t bail us out.
Jacob Eason does what he did much of the afternoon: running like heck from the Ole Miss defense. Also, Greg Pyke might have been holding on this play.
