Ole Miss has come to play in season openers, as the Rebels are 9-2 in their past 11 opening games. Ole Miss has averaged 49.8 points per game in their past four Week 1 games – though the competition was less than good. The Rebels start their season with a much stiffer test this year, as they take on Florida State Monday.
- Ole Miss is 4-0 ATS in their past four games as an underdog of 4.0 or more.
- Chad Kelly ended the 2015 season by throwing 11 TDs and just one INT through the final four games.
- Dalvin Cook averaged 176.3 rushing yards per game in the state of Florida last season.
There is no doubt that Chad Kelly has all the tools to be a top-tier quarterback, but Ole Miss will need someone to step up in the receiving unit if they wish to succeed this season. Laquan Treadwell – who is now on the Minnesota Vikings – accounted for more than 25 percent of the Rebels’ receiving yards last year.
Quarterback Deondre Francois will get the start for FSU after expected starter Sean Maguire required surgery on his foot. Francois – a redshirt freshman – put up some solid numbers during the FSU intrasquad game with the quarterback going 20-for-33 for 246 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
