Just because they may be done suiting up in red and blue doesn’t necessarily mean several Ole Miss football players need to hang up their spikes.

Led by a healthy Brandon Bolden and Jeff Scott, the Rebels totaled 172 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in the first half, a season-high for a half in the rushing department.
