Ole Miss sophomore WR A.J. Brown caught seven passes for 70 yards with a touchdown in a 31-24 loss on Saturday to Texas A&M.

Brown has now scored in the last three games, and has caught 28 passes over that time frame. His score on Saturday was a 27-yarder from quarterback Jordan Ta'amu that gave the Rebels a 7-0 lead with 12: 29 left in the first quarter. Brown now has over 1,000 yards receiving and has scored ten times on the season. He'll try to add to those numbers while getting Ole Miss bowl-eligible next week against Mississippi State on Thanksgiving.
Nov 19 - 11:39 AM

Mississippi redshirt junior RB Jordan Wilkins carried the ball 19 times for 147 yards and a score in a 31-24 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday.

Wilkins got off to a great start, but was held in check during the second-half for the Rebels. His score was an impressive 64-yard stroll to give the Rebels a 14-7 lead in the middle of the first quarter. Outside of that run, Wilkins had a solid -- if not spectacular -- 18 carries for 83 yards. Ole Miss and the junior tailback will get another chance to qualify for a bowl on Thanksgiving against Mississippi State.
Nov 18 - 10:58 PM

Ole Miss redshirt sophomore WR Van Jefferson (dislocated elbow) will not play on Saturday against Texas A&M.

Jefferson will also probably miss the Thanksgiving Egg Bowl against Mississippi State with the injury as well. He picked up the injury last week against Louisiana Lafayette. Unless Ole Miss wins one of their next two games, it sounds like the sophomore wideout's season will come to a close.
Nov 16 - 8:40 PM

Mississippi redshirt junior RB Jordan Wilkins rushed 14 times for 124 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's victory against Louisiana-Lafayette.

Wilkins has been outstanding, hitting the century mark in rushing yardage four times over the past seven outings while puncturing the end zone at least once in five of the past six contests. He is averaging a robust 6.2 yards per game while totaling seven touchdowns (six rushing, one receiving) through 10 outings. Wilkins will try to carry over the momentum into next Saturday's tilt against Texas A&M.
Nov 11 - 4:51 PM

Mississippi junior QB Jordan Ta'amu completed 28 of his 36 pass attempts for 418 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 50-22 win against Louisiana-Lafayette.

Ta'amu not only passed for a high yardage total, but he ran for a pair of scores in the 28-point victory, too. He has thrown for 368 or more yards in each of his past three outings while accounting for 11 total touchdowns (seven passing, four rushing). He'll look to continue to steer the ship in the right direction next weekend when Texas A&M pays a visit to Oxford.
Nov 11 - 4:32 PM

Ole Miss redshirt sophomore WR Van Jefferson left for the locker room in the first quarter of Saturday's game against UL-Lafayette due to an undisclosed injury.

The nature and extent of Jefferson's injury has yet to come to light. Consider him questionable to return to Saturday's contest.
Nov 11 - 2:20 PM

Ole Miss redshirt junior RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) is considered day-to-day for the Rebels.

Wilkins (6'1/215) has been dealing with an ankle injury for several weeks now, and was limited to just eight touches against Kentucky last week. Still, it'd be a surprise if Wilkins isn't able to go for Ole Miss this weekend against Louisiana Lafayette. If he can't, Eric Swinney could be in for most of the carries against the Ragin Cajuns.

Ole Miss sophomore WR D.K. Metcalf caught five passes for 83 yards with two touchdowns in Saturday's 37-34 victory over Kentucky.

Metcalf (6'4/225) has had back-to-back big weeks for the Rebels, and was able to find the end zone twice for Ole Miss on Saturday. He saved his best for the end of the game, when he reaches over a Wildcat defender and pulled in a 7-yard touchdown with just five seconds left to give the Rebels the 37-34 victory. It's been a very disappointing year in Oxford, but Metcalf has the potential to become a star. Ole Miss takes on Louisiana Lafayette next week.
Nov 5 - 2:46 PM

Ole Miss junior QB Jordan Ta'amu completed 31-of-40 passes for 382 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 37-34 win over Kentucky.

Shea who? We wouldn't go that far -- regular starter Shea Patterson has been lost for the campaign with a knee injury -- but Ta'amu has been fantastic in his first two collegiate starts in place of the sophomore gunslinger. In Saturday's victory, the 6-foot-2, 212-pound JUCO transfer connected for touchdowns in even fashion, doling out one in all four quarters. He's surpassed 360 yards through the air in both of his starts to date and will try for that mark once more when the Rebels take on Louisiana-Lafayette next weekend.
Nov 4 - 9:03 PM

SEC Country's Randy Capps assigned Ole Miss junior QB Jordan Ta'amu a "B" grade for his performance against Arkansas on Saturday.

Ta'amu (6'2/212), a JUCO transfer from the past cycle who was making his first collegiate start in place of Shea Patterson (knee) on Saturday, threw for 368 yards and put in an additional 76 yards rushing and two ground scores. He did turn the ball over twice, once on an interception and once on a fumble -- hence why Capps did not grade him higher. Ta'amu will have a chance to make further noise against Kentucky next weekend.

Oct 29 - 2:04 PM

Ole Miss redshirt junior Jordan Wilkins (ankle) rushed for 118 yards and a score on 16 carries in Saturday's 38-37 loss to Arkansas.

He added a 24-yard catch. Wilkins (6'1/215) was able to give it a go after suffering an ankle injury in the loss to LSU last Saturday. Despite not having more than 18 carries in any game this season, Wilkins has rushed for over 100 yards in three of the last five contests and had over 85 total yards in all five of them.
Oct 28 - 3:57 PM

Ole Miss junior QB Jordan Ta'amu went 20-of-30 passing for 368 yards and an interception in Saturday's 38-37 loss to Arkansas.

Ta'amu (6'2/212), who ascended to the QB1 post after Shea Patterson's season-ending knee injury, was making his first career start. He added 76 rushing yards and two scores. It was a tail of two halves for quarterback and team. Ta'amu came out on fire as the Rebels raced to a 31-7 lead early in the second quarter. But from there on, Ta'amu and the offense went cold. Arkansas dominated, closing the game on a 31-6 run. Ta'amu, who was ESPN's No. 4 JUCO dual-threat QB in the last class, will close out the season as the starter with Patterson sidelined.
Oct 28 - 3:49 PM

Ole Miss redshirt junior RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) is probable for Saturday's game against Arkansas.

Wilkins dinged up his ankle in a loss to LSU on Saturday. He was considered questionable for this weekend's contest against Arkansas at the beginning of the practice week, but Rebs interim HC Matt Luke bumped his status up to "probable" on Wednesday. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound redshirt junior has rushed for 468 yards (5.6 YPC) and four touchdowns in seven games this season.
Oct 25 - 10:37 PM

Ole Miss received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 CB Jakorey Hawkins.

Hawkins (5'11/188) was nearly a Missouri pledge in the summer, but took a step back, reevaluated and has now thrown his lot in with the Rebs. He indicated that he is unconcerned with the possibility of a coaching change this winter. Rivals ranks the Montgomery, Alabama, native as the No. 70 cornerback prospect in the 2018 class.
Oct 25 - 10:12 PM

Ole Miss redshirt junior Jordan Wilkins (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against Arkansas.

Wilkins (6'1/215) picked up the injury in the loss to LSU on Saturday. If he's unable to play against the Razorbacks, Eric Swinney should be the lead back for the Rebels, with Eugene Brazley getting an uptick in touches as well.
