An offensive explosion, led by the running of Brandon Bolden, and a defensive unit that did much better against the run game ultimately propelled the Ole Miss Rebels to a much needed home win Saturday night.
The Rebels pounded Fresno State 55-38 in front of a crowd of 55,267 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium by winning the battle up front on both sides of the ball. Ole Miss’ offense totaled a season-high 578 yards with 425 yards coming on the ground, while a beleaguered defense that struggled at key times last week against Vanderbilt, shut down the Bulldogs’ ground game to the tune of just 30 yards on 33 carries.
