After an 9–4 season that ended in a Peach Bowl loss to TCU, Ole Miss kicks off its 2015 campaign on Saturday against UT Martin. 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. The return of junior receiver Laquon Treadwell, who sustained a season-ending leg injury on Nov. 1 last season, should help. The Rebels were one of the toughest defensive teams last season, allowing the fewest points per game in the FBS and ranking No. 12 in total yards allowed. Sophomore defensive end Robert Nkemdiche is among the returning standouts. The Rebels are ranked No. 13 in SI.com's preseason poll.
Tennessee-Martin finished 6-6 last season, 5-3 in the Ohio Valley. The Skyhawks return experience on the defensive end, led by senior defensive back Jordan Landry. Running back Abou Toure is gone, but quarterback Jarod Neal returns for his senior year along with his three top receivers.
