Year 1: Ohio Bobcats at Ole Miss Rebels0 (0-1)24 (1-0) Ohio came to Oxford, Mississippi as massive underdogs under the new coaching regime under HC Travis Gruenler and Ole Miss proved to be the superior team. The Ole Miss Rebels haven't won an outright conference title since 1963 and haven't won a national title since 1962, something that this new head coaching regime looks to change, and fast. Ole Miss came out of the gate slow and sputtered on defense as Ohio drove the ball until a interception by Brishen Matthews. Ole Miss would drive down the field and to complete the drive, a TD pass was thrown by Randall Mackey to Ferbia Allen who caught all of Mackey's TD passes. Randall Mackey had a good day under the new regime going 12 for 18 for 194 YDs and 3 TDs and a INT on a 3rd and long in the 3rd quarter. The Ole Miss defense held Ohio to 186 YDs to Ohio only converting on 28.57% on 3rd down conversions. When interviewed after the game about his goals for this season, coach Gruenler responded with "Obviously, we missed a bowl game last year with a 4-8 record under Mr. Nutt so firstly we'd like to get to that six win total and then go from there." Next week, Ole Miss looks to go up 2-0 as they travel to Orlando, Florida to take on the UCF Knights.
