At one point in the game between the Ole Miss Rebels and BYU Cougars, Mississippi had lost three of their running backs to injury. Ole Miss fans can all rest easy tonight, as Jeff Scott returned to the game, meaning that their running back depth will not be completely crippled going forward. That's the good news. The bad news is that they lost 14-13 at home to BYU.
The Cougars controlled possession throughout the first half, but somehow went into the locker room trailing 3-0. Ole Miss decided to step on the gas in the third quarter an extended their lead to 10-0. They added a field goal in the fourth quarter, pushing their lead to 13-0. They held this lead deep into the fourth quarter, but around 55 minutes into the game, BYU realized "We've been the better team for 55 minutes!" and decided to score some touchdowns. They scored two of them.
Go drown your sorrows, Oxford.
