  Matt Corral was not going to let an extended weather delay spoil his night. The Mississippi quarterback shrugged off the nearly two-hour pause and posted a record-setting performance. "We had the best week of practice that we've had since I've been here," Corral said. "It showed tonight. The weather wasn't going to stop us." Corral accounted for a school-record seven touchdowns in less than three quarters as No. 17 Mississippi defeated Tulane 61-21 Saturday night. Corral ran for four touchdowns – 9, 15, 15 and 6 yards – and passed for three scores, finishing 23 of 32 for 355 yards. Corral had touchdown passes of 12, 50 and 45 yards to Dontario Drummond, Jonathan Mingo and Braylon Sanders, respectively.

Corral was lifted after directing three scoring drives early in the third quarter to build a 61-21 lead, capped by his final two touchdown runs. The Rebels finished with 707 yards of total offense, 403 by Corral, on a pace to merit consideration in the Heisman Trophy race. "The numbers really don't mean much to me. Not really," Corral said. "But I think they mean something to him (Coach Lane Kiffin) and I think he wants it more for me than I do. I'm just happy we played so well." The Rebels (3-0) responded to the weather delay efficiently, scoring on six of the seven opening possessions, including touchdown runs of 19 and 11 yards by Henry Parish Jr. and Drummond. Jerrion Ealy led the Ole Miss rushers with 15 carries for 103 yards. "This is a really good win," Mississippi coach Lane Kiffin said. "Tulane is a really good team and I think they'll do really good things the rest of the way, but we played well." - Mississippi Football/AP College Football

  SEPT 12 WALTER CAMP FOOTBALL NATIONAL OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: MATT CORRAL, OLE MISS, Junior, Quarterback, Ventura, CA/Long Beach Poly,...In two games in a five-day span this week, Matt Corral completed 43-of-65 passes for 662 yards and six touchdowns (with no interceptions) as 20th-ranked Ole Miss defeated Louisville, 43-24, and Austin Peay, 54-17. Corral passed for 381 yards against Louisville on Monday and had five touchdown passes in the win over Austin Peay on Saturday. Notes: It is the second time Corral has earned Walter Camp Offensive Player of Week honors (Nov. 1, 2020). Corral is also the third Ole Miss player to earn Player of Week honors since 2004. - Walter Camp Football Foundation

  Mississippi quarterback Matt Corral insists he does not play favorites when it comes to picking receivers. "I really don't. I go through my progressions and make my reads," Corral said after throwing for five touchdowns - four in the first half - as No. 20 Mississippi routed FCS member Austin Peay 54-17 on Saturday night. "There's really not a favorite. We've got receivers that can make plays...It's hard for the defense to figure out who to take away." Ole Miss (2-0) added a defensive touchdown on a strip sack and 33-yard fumble return from defensive end Sam Williams and a safety from the special teams to build a 37-0 second quarter lead over the Governors (1-1) of the Ohio Valley Conference. "We were coming off a short week with the Monday win with Louisville," Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin said. "For one full day of practice and coming off a physical game, I thought our starters played pretty good." Corral finished 21 of 33 for 281 yards and had two other potential touchdown passes dropped during a lopsided first half.

Corral guided two series in the third quarter, building a 51-10 lead on a 3-yard run by Snoop Conner, before yielding to three reserves in the final 25 minutes. "The fast start was important," Corral said. "It's a lot of little things that if you do them right, they compound into big things, like touchdowns. We've still got some things to clean up but we got the job done." Dontario Drummond and Jonathan Mingo had two touchdown receptions apiece, covering 1, 49, 15 and 40 yards, respectively. Braylon Sanders added an 11-yard touchdown reception before Caden Costa closed the scoring with a 26-yard field goal. The Rebels finished with 631 yards of total offense. - Mississippi/AP College Football

  ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit only sees one path Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral can take to winning the Heisman Trophy. The Tipico Sportsbook and USA TODAY Sports list Corral as having the seventh-best odds to win the Heisman Trophy this fall. But Herbstreit, who will be the color commentator for Ole Miss' season opener against Louisville on Monday, doesn't see that happening unless the No. 25 Rebels vault into College Football Playoff contention. "It's impossible. It's virtually impossible," Herbstreit said. "Please don't make the title 'Herbstreit says impossible for Corral to win Heisman.' I'm just going by facts. It's not very often a guy on a 7-5 team wins the Heisman or an 8-4 team wins the Heisman." Don't get Herbstreit wrong. He's high on Corral.

He spoke with him earlier this week. He said he loves Corral's competitive spirit, loves the way Corral plays and loves watching Corral play. He said he'd rank Corral's trio of top receiving targets among the best in the country, not just the SEC, and thinks that trio coupled with Corral and Ole Miss' quartet of talented running backs means the Rebels are in store for a "monster year." But Herbstreit is basing this on facts. Ten of the last 13 Heisman winners have played on teams that made the College Football Playoff or BCS Championship. No player from a team that won fewer than nine games has won the Heisman since Notre Dame receiver Tim Brown in 1987. - The Clarion Ledger

  Days before the start of the 2021 season, No. 25 Ole Miss football has added another quarterback. Former Maryland and Western Kentucky quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome has joined the Rebels. Pigrome, who started seven games and played in 34 at Maryland, was added to the Rebels' roster Tuesday. Pigrome joins junior Matt Corral, sophomore Kinkead Dent and freshman Luke Altmyer in the Rebels' quarterback room. Pigrome is a senior who does not have any remaining eligibility after 2021. At Maryland, Pigrome threw for 1,455 yards and seven touchdowns and ran for 376 yards and four touchdowns across three seasons. In 2020 at Western Kentucky, Pigrome threw for 1,603 yards and nine touchdowns and ran for 337 yards and four touchdowns. - The Clarion Ledger

  Yes, John Rhys Plumlee thought about it. Of course Plumlee considered the transfer portal. The list of quarterbacks in recent years who lost their starting jobs and stayed put is small. Plumlee could have been the next Jalen Hurts or Jacob Eason or Kelly Bryant and traded in his Ole Miss uniform for one where he could replicate his 1,000-yard rushing season from behind center in 2019.

Ultimately, Plumlee thought better of the portal. "To say that it didn't cross my mind, I'd be lying to you," Plumlee said. "But I love Ole Miss. I've started something pretty good here with my friends and family that love Ole Miss. The people here, the atmosphere here at Ole Miss, the baseball aspect of it, a lot went into it. But I feel really blessed to be at Ole Miss. So I'm happy that I stayed." That staying power has transcended the piano-playing, Train-singing quarterback who moonlights as an outfielder in the spring into a wide receiver. Plumlee's transition to receiver began prior to the Outback Bowl last season. He had about a week to learn the position. Raw as he was, he caught five passes for 73 yards, including two crucial hauls on the Rebels' go-ahead fourth quarter drive to help seal the victory. - The Clarion Ledger

  Five Ole Miss and Mississippi State football players were named to the preseason All-SEC team by the league's coaches Tuesday, four of which representing the Rebels and one representing the Bulldogs. Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral was tabbed first-team all-conference and Rebels running back Jerrion Ealy was picked as a first-team all-purpose player and return specialist. Ealy also earned third-team honors as a running back.

Mississippi State offensive lineman Charles Cross and Ole Miss punter Mac Brown were second-team selections. Ole Miss offensive lineman Nick Broeker rounds out the list with a third-team selection. Alabama led with 15 All-SEC selections, seven on the first team. Mississippi State was one of three schools without a first-team All-SEC selection, alongside Vanderbilt and Missouri. - The Clarion Ledger

  Two weeks before the start of the season, Ole Miss football still isn't done building its roster. Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin announced the addition of offensive lineman Jordan Rhodes to the roster Monday. Rhodes, who played in 20 games over the last three years at South Carolina, is a 6-foot-4, 335-pound lineman originally from Fairburn, Georgia. Rhodes has two years of eligibility remaining and will be immediately eligible to play. Rhodes played in four games for South Carolina in 2020 without making a start. He played in all 12 of the Gamecocks' games in 2019. Rhodes entered his name into the transfer portal in April. This addition marks two veteran offensive linemen added by the Rebels this summer. Ole Miss also brought in Utah transfer Orlando Umana, who is expected to start at center when healthy. - The Clarion Ledger

  Another South Carolina football player is reportedly heading for a new stop. Redshirt senior offensive lineman Jordan Rhodes entered the transfer portal Friday a USC athletic department spokesperson confirmed to The State. Matt Zenitz of On3 Sports first reported the news. Rhodes played in 20 games over the past three seasons, mostly in a reserve role. He opted out of the 2020 season before opting back in. Rhodes wasn't among the linemen working with the first-team offense during the practice portions that have been open to the media. He was rated a three-star recruit in the 2017 class and chose South Carolina over offers from Missouri, Cincinnati and Mississippi State, among others. - Rock Hill Herald

  One thing Kiffin hasn't had too many times in his career is a repeat quarterback. Since his first year as offensive coordinator at USC in 2005, Kiffin has only had two quarterbacks as his primary starter in back-to-back years. Matt Barkley started for him from 2010-12, and Chris Robison started for FAU in 2018-19. Based on the jumps those two made in year two under Kiffin's tutelage, Corral could be in for a huge year.

Barkley went from throwing 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions with a 141.2 passer efficiency rating to throwing 39 touchdowns and seven interceptions with a 161.2 rating. Robinson threw 12 touchdowns and 12 interceptions with a 138.3 rating in 2018, then threw for 28 touchdowns and six interceptions in 2019 with a 144.9 rating. USC' went 10-2 in Barkley's second year under Kiffin and FAU went 10-3 in Robison's second year under Kiffin. Corral was significantly better in his first year under Kiffin than either Barkley or Robison, but if his efficiency can take a similar jump, he'll likely be in the conversation for the Heisman and Ole Miss could win as many games as USC and Florida Atlantic did. - The Clarion Ledger

  07/24/21 - Jerrion EalyJr/2023, Mississippi, 5-08, 185 (DS#16 RB) + More +

  Starting running back Jerrion Ealy missed the spring recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. Kiffin said Ealy is healthy and working with the team again, but also hinted at the idea that Ealy might be more than just a running back in 2021. "We're excited to have a fall with him where, now that we know more about him, having a season that we could maybe move him around and do some different things," Kiffin said. In a private session with Ole Miss beat writers, Kiffin also alluded to the possibility of using Ealy as more of a pass-catcher. As Ole Miss strives to replace All-America receiver Elijah Moore over the middle, don't be surprised if someone like Ealy gets more opportunities in the slot while fellow running backs Snoop Conner and Henry Parrish man the backfield. - The Clarion Ledger
