Video: Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze rejects FG opportunity in favor of Fat Guy Touchdown

No. 12 Ole Miss cruised to a 48-20 victory over No. 16 Oklahoma State to help the Southeastern Conference improve to 6-2 in bowl games this season with three teams still playing. Darn it. Drats, says the Oklahoma transplant. Per ESPN, Mississippi’s Chad Kelly was throwing touchdown passes and Laquon Treadwell was catching them in the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Friday night. No real surprise there. But the touchdown run by 305-pound left tackle Laremy Tunsil, who nimbly grabbed a lateral and jogged untouched into the end zone? That caught a few people off guard and was a surprise play — including an overwhelmed Oklahoma State defense that had no answer for the Rebels.


From Saturday Down South:

With five seconds left in the first half, Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze called a play no saw coming.

Freeze and the Rebels have been practicing this play all week, and it is the perfect cap to what will probably be Tunsil’s last college game.

The Rebels were really up for the win, jumping out to a 34-6 lead at halftime by mixing their standard offense with a few trick plays that kept the Cowboys off balance all night. “We had a blast,” an emotional Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said on the field after the game. “They really prepared well — I was super confident all day.” Kelly, who was selected the game’s most valuable player, threw for 302 yards and four touchdowns, including three to Treadwell. “We all came together and played really, really well today,” Kelly said. Kelly’s four touchdown passes and Treadwell’s three touchdown catches tied Sugar Bowl records. Kelly completed 21 of 33 passes and ran for 73 yards on 10 carries. Oklahoma State lost its final three games after 10 straight wins. The Cowboys fell into a 41-6 hole midway through the third quarter and never mounted a legitimate challenge. I guess there is always next year. Congrats to the Rebels for a great game.
