Rumblings: The third-ranked Rebels, 7-0 for the first time since 1962, when they went 11-0 and claimed the SEC title, are breathing rarefied air these days with a suffocating defense and an efficient offense.

The offense: What you don’t want to hear

Wallace completes 65.6 percent of his passes and averages 271.3 yards per game with his top three receivers — led by Treadwell — combining for 82 receptions, 1,227 yards, 12 TDs and an average of 15.0 yards per grab.

The offense: What you do want to hear

The Rebels don’t run the ball that well — 151.3 yards per game to rank 11th in the SEC. They average 3.9 yards per attempt, although Jaylen Walton nets 5.9 yards per carry.

The defense: What you don’t want to hear

Ole Miss ranks in the top eight in the FBS in three key categories — scoring (first), rushing (sixth) and total yards (eighth). The Rebels also lead the SEC with 15 interceptions and 20 total takeaways.

The defense: What you do want to hear

There’s not much they don’t do well, but the Rebels have given up some big plays — runs of 26, 28 and 39 yards and passes of 32, 33, 42 and 53 yards.
