No. 3 Ole Miss Rebels vs. Tennessee Volunteers Open Thread

An old rivalry is reignited tonight in Oxford.

Remember the last time the Tennessee Volunteers paid Oxford a visit? Surely you do, because how could any Ole Miss fan forget this:

That game, even in the midst of a season that already felt like a letdown, was a major high point in the recent memory of a lot of Rebel fans. Wins over Tennessee have been a bit of a premium in Oxford since John Vaught's departure, and that win was the first time that Ole Miss had thoroughly dominated a program like Tennessee in many years. Making it even sweeter were Lane Kiffin and Ed Orgeron watching, stunned, from the sidelines as Dexter Mccluster and the Rebel offense shredded the Volunteer defense for, like, a thousand yards and a million points or something.

It was an ass kicking, not unlike what a lot of us expect to see tonight. The Rebels probably (okay, most definitely) aren't going to move the ball as easily this go around as they did last time, but the Landshark defense will be so thoroughly dominant that any Ole Miss offensive struggles probably won't matter.
