In this week’s installment, The Daily Mississippian football beat writer Bennett Hipp gives his keys to this week’s matchup.

 
Keep an eye on 29
 
Ole Miss is going to have its hands full Saturday afternoon defending No. 29 Jarvis Jones, a junior linebacker. Jones, one of the top linebackers in the country, has been wreaking havoc on opposing offenses all season long. The Bulldogs move Jones around quite a bit and have enough playmakers around him to make teams pay for overcompensating against Jones.

The Ole Miss Rebels defeated the Arkansas Razorbacks 30-27 on Saturday on the foot of senior Bryson Rose’s 31-yard field goal as time expired. While Rose was carried off the field in triumph, the Rebels’ second-straight Southeastern Conference victory was much more than a one-man job.

Bryson Rose kicked a 31-yard field goal to win the game for Ole Miss, 30-27. Bo Wallace was 29-of-37 for 278 yards and a touchdown to lead the Rebels. Ole Miss improves to 5-3, 2-2 in Southeastern Conference play, with games against Georgia, Vanderbilt, LSU and Mississippi State remaining on the schedule.

 
Things got off to a rough start for Ole Miss in Little Rock with Arkansas scoring on their first drive on a 22-yard field goal by Zach Hocker. The Rebels' first drive stalled and they were forced to punt. Then the Razorbacks struck again when quarterback Tyler Wilson found tight end Chris Gragg from 42 yards out. The Razorbacks went 85 yards in nine plays and took 3:35 off the clock.

It had been 741 days since Ole Miss had the opportunity to celebrate a Southeastern Conference win. A lot has changed since then, most notably a coaching change that saw Hugh Freeze take the reins of the football program.

In this week’s edition of Four Downs, The Daily Mississippian football beat writers Bennett Hipp and Matt Sigler, sports editor David Collier and managing editor Austin Miller answer four questions regarding the week’s matchup.

 
1. Will one of the quarterbacks solidify himself as the starter for the rest of the season?
 
Bennett Hipp (@bennetthipp): I think if Bo Wallace starts and plays well, he can take a step toward solidifying himself. I’m not sure one game is enough to make it a done deal, as he’ll have to limit interceptions and turnovers going forward no matter what.

In this week’s edition of a weekly feature, The Daily Mississippian football beat writers Bennett Hipp and Matt Sigler, sports editor David Collier and managing editor Austin Miller answer four questions regarding the week’s matchup.

 
1. Will there be a letdown after the season-opening win against Central Arkansas? Will Ole Miss be looking ahead to next week’s matchup against No. 15 Texas?

The Daily Mississippian sports editor David Collier caught up with the University of Central Arkansas’ sports editor Lee Hogan to discuss Saturday’s season opener between Ole Miss and Central Arkansas.

 
David Collier: Tell us about about this Central Arkansas team. What do they bring to the table as they head into the season?
 
Lee Hogan: You have a lot of returning guys that had a successful 2011 season. They made their first appearance in the FCS playoffs last year. They finished up the season 9-4. They’ve got a lot of big play guys on offense, especially at running back and wide receiver.

Quarterbacks:
 
Ole Miss exits fall camp the same way it entered it in regard to the quarterback race. Sophomore Bo Wallace and junior Barry Brunetti still sit even at the top of the depth chart and in the race to be the Rebels’ starting quarterback come the Sept. 1 season opener against Central Arkansas.  Both players were up and down throughout camp as a whole.

After arguably the offense’s best practice of the spring this past Thursday, the defense ruled the day as the offense took a step back in Tuesday’s practice. Head coach Hugh Freeze went on to say the defense’s emotion and energy matched that of the offense from last week, which he said is to be expected, but he was disappointed the offense didn’t compete harder than it did Tuesday.

On Saturday night, every Ole Miss senior will be playing their last game inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, and they will do so against the No. 1 LSU Tigers. It will also mark head coach Houston Nutt’s last home game in Oxford, before the Rebels close out the 2011 season next week at Mississippi State. For now, all Nutt is worried about is LSU.
