Know Your Enemy: Ole Miss

Opponent: Mississippi Rebels

Location: Oxford, Mississippi. Not to be confused with Oxford, England.

Previous Game Against UF: 2003, defeated UF 20-17.

This season: 1-2 (0-1 SEC)

Notable Statistic: It's the unstoppable force versus the movable object. UF is first in the SEC with 521.3 yards per game. Ole Miss is last with allowing 466 yards per game. For those on the `Tebow for Heisman' bandwagon; UF is 1st in passing offense, and Ole Miss is last in passing defense.

Notable Player(s): QB Seth Adams...After going back and forth on who would go Saturday, Adams will get the start. He sprained his throwing shoulder in the fourth quarter of the Rebels' 31-17 loss at Vandy. In that game he was 10-17 for 154 with a TD and INT. This season he has five TDs and two picks for 660 yards and 59.1 completion percentage. If Adams gets banged up again expect to see...
RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis who was held to 66 yards against Vandy. He has 77 carries for an average of 4.8 yards per carry this season. If Ole Miss sticks with the passing game, `60 Minutes' correspondent and wide receiver Mike Wallace will be the guy they turn to. Wallace is averaging 21.5 yards per catch. Last week, he had four catches for 139 yards and two TDs.

Unconfirmed Rumor About Team: Ole Miss' practice of redshirting Miss Americas has led to numerous disappointing appearances at the Miss Universe contest. Apparently, they are not used to competing at the elite level.
