Through 3 Quarters
A great path to victory is to simply outgain your opponent on the field, and that's working so far for the Ole Miss Rebels (with 629 yards vs. 265 yards). After three quarters it's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Tulane Green Wave as the Rebels lead 61-21. QB Matt Corral has led the way so far for Ole Miss, as he has passed for three TDs and 335 yards on 31 attempts in addition to rushing for four TDs and 68 yards.
Ole Miss has been riding high on the performance of Corral, who has passed for three TDs and 335 yards on 31 attempts in addition to rushing for four TDs and 68 yards. Corral's 50-yard touchdown toss to WR Jonathan Mingo in the second quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the night.
Ole Miss and Tulane came into this matchup with previous-game wins. It's looking like Ole Miss will be able to keep the momentum, but the Green Wave still have a quarter to right the ship.
