No. 24 Mississippi tries bouncing back after loss

Posted: Updated:

Mississippi's football program has received a reality check. Now it's time to see if the Rebels are resilient.

No. 24 Ole Miss (3-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) is trying to fix several issues as it prepares to face Auburn (3-1, 1-1) on Saturday. The most pressing: an offense that was non-existent in a 25-0 loss to No. 1 Alabama on Saturday.

The Rebels managed just 205 total yards - including only 46 rushing yards - against the Tide's defense. Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace said Alabama did a good job of spreading out its defensive line and not letting the Rebels' playmakers get outside for big gains.

Ole Miss will be on the road for the fourth time in five games. Auburn is coming off a bye week.
