One Note Before Leaving

It certainly isn't the biggest win of the season, but it's the biggest margin.

And not just of Ole Miss' season - in the SEC in 2008. Florida's 63-5 win over Kentucky was certainly more impressive, but it was only by 58 points. It eclipses the Gators' 56-10 win over Hawaii, Auburn's 34-0 win over the Warhawks (not to mention Arkansas' 1-point win over ULM), and Alabama's 41-7 win over Western Kentucky.

In case you were wondering, we last scored 59 points in the third game of 2003 against UL-Monroe, winning 59-14. This is tied for the most points scored by the Rebels in a game since a Sept. 13, 1980 game against Memphis State that ended 61-7. It is the largest margin of victory since the 1969 Homecoming game against Southern Mississippi - a 69-7 victory for the Rebels.
