Good news: Laremy Tunsil is back!
Bad news: not until next week's game against Texas A&M.
But enough about that, the 5-1 Ole Miss Rebels head north to the Bluff City to take on a 5-0 Memphis team that is currently riding a 12-game win streak and are feeling pretty confident about their tangle with the No. 12 ranked Rebels. And for good reason. The Fighting Fuentes are averaging 47 points per game and slinging the pill around the yard for a decent average of 335 yards a game.
But, their defense is where the issues begin and keep going for a while. They've given up over 400 yards passing twice this season to Bowling Green and Cincinnati. Now, how will they handle an Ole Miss squad that has the SEC's leading passer in Chad Kelly and a T-800 model Terminator by the name of Laquon Treadwell? Borkberry likes to think this is where the game will be decided, through the air and in each team's secondary. We shall see this Saturday.
On this week's podcast, Borkberry welcome in esteemed columnist and radio correspondent John Martin of 92.9 ESPN in Memphis. Listen in as he gives his take on the strengths and weaknesses of Paxton Lynch's game and how he thinks the Memphis defense will try to slow down Kelly and Co.
- Is this going to be a race to 40?
- Can Chad Kelly drop 300+ for the fifth time and break Eli and Bo's record?
- Can Memphis slow down Laquon Treadwell and the rest of dem boyz?
- Will Paxton Lynch be able to throw for more than 81 yards this year?
- Can anyone for Memphis block Robert Nkemdiche?
- Are you as excited as Berry is for Tiger Lane?
