Ole Miss Rebels vs. Troy Trojans Statistical Preview and OPEN THREAD

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

It's an early game, and we're a bit behind anyway, so here's everything you need for this saturday rolled into one post.

Sorry for a lackluster week of coverage here at the Cup, but can you blame us after two weeks of pretty lackluster football? (Okay, no, you can't, and we apologize.)

This weekend will, unfortunately, continue that trend, but will thankfully be the last of such football left on the year, as the Rebels take on the Troy Trojans in preparation for Missouri and Mississippi State in the following weekends. The game kicks off at 11:00 AM Central (eesh) and will be broadcast on ESPNU.

The Trojans, led by Head Coach Larry Blakeney, come into Oxford with a 5-5 record (3-3 Sun Belt). As evidenced by the statistics, Troy has a potent passing attack led by senior QB Corey Robinson. Robinson has used many different receivers to pile up his yardage as Troy has 11 different receivers that have caught double digit passes this year.

Fortunately for the Rebels, the Trojans have not been very good against the pass, or really any offense for that matter. They rank toward the bottom among FBS teams in most defensive categories. Against more capable competition, these shortcomings are fairly pronounced. Troy has lost 41-34 to Arkansas State, 62-7 to Mississippi State, and 38-31 to Duke.

So Ole Miss just needs to score a lot of points. Really, that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Keys to the game:

  1. Start fast
  2. Establish line of scrimmage with the run game
  3. Create pressure with defensive front and create turnovers
