In Saturday’s Military Appreciation game, #20 Ole Miss took care of business early and cruised to a 54-17 victory over Austin Peay at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Matt Corral completed 21-of-33 passes for 281 yards and threw 5 touchdown passes.
Dontario Drummond and Jonathan Mingo each caught a career-high 2 touchdowns each, with Drummond recording a 3rd straight 100-plus yard receiving game at 107 yards and two touchdowns – his 7th straight game with a score. Braylon Sanders and Snoop Conner each added a score through the air and ground, respectively.
Defensively, Ashanti Cistrunk led the Rebels with six tackles, while Sam Williams had two sacks and a 33-yard scoop-and-score in the first half. Across the board, numerous players made their Rebel debut at the end of a dominant home opener.
The Rebels now gear up for their next game at home next Saturday, September 18th when they host Tulane. Ole Miss head football coach Lane Kiffin talked about last night’s win and much more in his postgame presser. Video is courtesy of Ole Miss Athletics.
