A pair of teams from different BCS conferences meet on Saturday night as the Texas Longhorns (2-0) visit Ole Miss (2-0) at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Miss.
The No. 14 Longhorns arrive in "The Grove" undefeated after dispatching a pair of Mountain West teams in Austin. Texas beat Wyoming and New Mexico by the combined score of 82-17 in the first two weeks.
While the dual-headed quarterback situation was the pre-season story for Texas, sophomore David Ash has thrown 49 of 58 total passes for the Longhorns. So far, Ash is off to a strong start, completing 74 percent of his passes with no interceptions in those 49 attempts. A pair of talented running backs in Joe Bergeron and Malcolm Brown has the Longhorns averaging 213 rushing yards per game.
Ole Miss is off to a 2-0 start under first-year head coach Hugh Freeze. The Rebels will be playing their third-straight home game after beating Central Arkansas (49-27) and UTEP (28-10) to start the season. With a new offensive look keyed by quarterback Bo Wallace, the Rebels are averaging 552 yards per game, 10th-best in the country.
Game time, TV channel: 9:15 p.m. ET, ESPN
