Ole Miss Vs. BYU: Final Score, Cougars Win, But At Least Jeff Scott Is Fine!

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.

Houston Nutt Has Lost Three Running Backs, Is Obviously Not Living Right

I'm not quite sure what Houston Nutt did to anger the college football gods, but he certainly did something. Somehow, some way, the Ole Miss Rebels have lose three running backs to injury in their game against the BYU CougarsBrandon Bolden and Jeff Scott went down in the first half, but Enrique Davis is the latest running back to succumb to whatever curse is currently on Ole Miss running backs.

The other dudes who have carried the ball for Ole Miss so far, other than the three aforementioned injured guys and quarterback Barry Brunetti, are Nickolas Brassell, Devin Thomas and Philander Moore. None of them are performing particularly well. It is probably not their fault. 

Somehow, despite these injuries and BYU's big advantage in time of possession, the Cougars are only winning this game 14-13. Ole Miss is very much in a game against a good team with no running backs. This is fairly impressive.

BYU Vs. Ole Miss Score: Halftime, Rebels Lead Sloppy Game

The first half of football between the BYU Cougars and the Ole Miss Rebels has been...okay, it's been bad. It's generally mediocre football, at best. Both defenses are performing well, but this game has been much more about bad offense and suspect play-calling so far. Brigham Young has controlled the time of possession, but Mississippi have the lead at halftime, with the score at 3-0.

Houston Nutt might be looking at Troubled Running Back Looking For A Transfer Of The Week tomorrow, as a couple of his boys have gone down with injuries. Jeff Scott and Brandon Bolden have both had to come out of the game after getting hurt, though the extent of their injuries isn't known yet. Nutt has had to use four running backs in the first half, none of whom have lit the world on fire.

Barry Brunetti and Zack Stoudt have combined for 24 passing yards for Ole Miss, while Jake Heaps has completed just 50 percent of his passes for 74 yards. Hopefully the second half is a little better.
