The Rebels are ranked No. 13 in SI.com's preseason poll.
Ole Miss will look to improve on an offense that ranked No. 49 in the FBS in total yards and No. 75 in rushing yards per game last year. Wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, who sustained a season-ending leg injury on Nov. 1 last season, returns for his junior year. Star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil also returns after fracturing his fibula during the Peach Bowl.
Defensively, the Rebels gave up the least number of points on average last season (13.8) in all of the FBS. The Ole Miss defense ranked No. 12 in total yards allowed. Sophomore defensive end Robert Nkemdiche is among the returning standouts.
