No. 13 Ole Miss Routs New Mexico State on Homecoming
Treadwell With a Career-High 136 Yards, Two Scores
Oxford, MS – Ole Miss looked to get back on track against New Mexico State Saturday, and the Rebels did just that.
Junior signal caller Chad Kelly completed 24-of-33 passes for a career-high 384 yards and touchdown passes of 20, 37 and 66 yards, as the Rebels routed the Aggies 52-3 in front of 60,154 fans for homecoming at Vaught-Hemingway stadium.
Kelly also rushed 32 yards and added another score on the ground, as Ole Miss amassed 665 yards of total offense, which was the most since the Rebels posted 751 yards of offense against Troy in 2013.
“It was good to get back on the field and see our kids compete,” said Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze. “It was good to play at home in front of our crowd in an early game. Hopefully we can use that time to rest and recover.”
After both teams traded field goals to start the game, Ole Miss took over, reeling off 49-straight points and took a 31-3 lead into the half. < READ MORE >
