The Tigers ran off 24 unanswered after being down 14-0 to end the half at 24-14 in their favor. That Ole Miss "D" was napping and then when it was time to punch the clock the Tigers had ran with the clock as that Ole Miss loss takes some air out of the SEC West and that 'Bama loss to the "Rebs" might loom larger than we think.
The Rebs got close after three cutting that Memphis lead to seven 31-24 as Memphis would add two FGs in the 4th as the only scoring in the last frame for a 37-24 upset for the ages. Memphis QB Paxton Lynch threw for 384 yards on 39 for 53 and 3 TDs with an INT. NFL HOF QB Jim Kelly's Nephew Chad Kelly threw for 372 yards on 33 for 47 with 2 TDs and two INTs.
It was Memphis ability to run the Pig and the Rebs inability to get anything going on the ground. Ole Miss All-American Candidate WR Laquon Treadwell had 144 yards and fourteen grabs and a TD to lead the "Rebs" receiving attack. Tigers WR Anthony Miller grabbed 10 pigs for 132 yards and a score to lead Memphis.
In case you just follow the high-majors or NCAA super-conferences Memphis is 6-0 and 3-0 in the American Athletic West and I know what your thinking and tell that to the Landshark! Ole Miss drops to 5-2 as they are 1-2 in SEC play...and this is shocking!
