Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace passed for 403 yards in Saturday’s 27-26 loss. While his statistics looked good — he was, after all, the first Rebel QB to throw for more than 400 yards since Eli Manning passed for 409 against Texas Tech in 2003 — Freeze said Wallace didn’t make the best decisions, specifically in the red zone. Freeze added he wishes he would have made a few different decisions as well.
With senior tight end Ferbia Allen headed to the disabled list after being injured against Vanderbilt, Freeze said the team is now down to “about 59 scholarship players.”
Looking ahead, the Rebels obviously have a difficult task this week when they travel to Baton Rouge, La., to face No. 7 LSU at 2:30 p.m. on CBS.
After watching film, Freeze said LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger gained confidence against Alabama and, facing a confident quarterback, can obviously be dangerous.
Below is a video of Freeze’s opening statement plus his response to the first couple of questions:
