Dart is currently locked in a battle with incumbent backup Luke Altmyer to become Matt Corral's heir at quarterback in Oxford. Corral helped lead the Rebels to 10 regular season wins for the first time in program history in 2021, and he was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Ole Miss fell short of a victory in the Sugar Bowl in January after Corral went down with an ankle injury in the first half. The Rebels will open their 2022 season at home against Troy in September.
