Ole Miss Rebels Total Offense Record Set in a 51-21 Victory Over the Troy Trojans

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

Bo Wallace and Barry Brunetti combined to lead the Ole Miss offense to a record setting day.

It wasn't pretty, and the team looked lethargic at times, but the Rebels had a record setting day on offense in a 51-21 victory over the Troy Trojans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. All things considered, it was a pretty solid tune-up game heading into Mizzou week.

Here are some numbers:

  • 753 total offensive yards for the Rebels, which broke a decades-old Ole Miss record and places fifth most for a single game in SEC history.
  • 93 total plays run by Ole Miss.
  • 31 first downs gained by Ole Miss.
  • 369 and 382 yards, Ole Miss' respective numbers passing and rushing. It was a very balanced attack, which isn't particularly surprising given the competition, but still worth mentioning.
  • 482 yards and five touchdowns, which were a product of both Bo Wallace and Barry Brunetti effectively passing and rushing the ball.
  • -13 rushing yards by Troy, a statistic which shouldn't be overlooked. The Rebel defensive front played a good game too. Robert Nkemdiche, Serderius Bryant, and D.T. Shackelford in particular stood out.
  • 52,931 announced attendance, which is probably a lie. Early kickoff + rain + Sun Belt opponent = apathetic Ole Miss fans, I can't blame anybody who just wasn't feeling it today. I hate these types of games too, y'all.
We'll talk more about this game over the next few days. For now, enjoy the rest of your Saturdays, and tune in to Marshall Henderson's return to the floor tonight against Coastal Carolina.
