Breeland Speaks, Ole Miss Defense Getting Physical this Spring

OXFORD, Miss. – The difficulties of the Ole Miss defense were well-documented in 2016, and this spring the Rebels have been on a mission to improve in all facets of defensive play.

The defense dominated the scripted portion of the Rebels’ red-zone scrimmage on Tuesday.… Read more...
