In this week’s edition of Four Downs, The Daily Mississippian football beat writers Bennett Hipp and Matt Sigler, sports editor David Collier and managing editor Austin Miller answer four questions regarding the week’s matchup.

 
1. Will one of the quarterbacks solidify himself as the starter for the rest of the season?
 
Bennett Hipp (@bennetthipp): I think if Bo Wallace starts and plays well, he can take a step toward solidifying himself. I’m not sure one game is enough to make it a done deal, as he’ll have to limit interceptions and turnovers going forward no matter what.

The Rebels are coming off a hard-fought loss to No. 1 Alabama this past weekend, while the Aggies defeated Arkansas last weekend 58-10 and appear to be settling into the SEC well so far. Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze knows he and his team will have a tough challenge this weekend.

Turnovers have been an issue for most of the season for Ole Miss, and sophomore quarterback Bo Wallace’s two interceptions Saturday mean that the Rebels will have “more competition this week” at the position, according to Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze.

1. How much does Bo Wallace play?
 
Bennett Hipp (@bennetthipp): To me, it depends on how the game goes. If Alabama jumps out to a big lead early, and the Crimson Tide defense is teeing off on Wallace, it would make sense to limit his playing time to make sure he’s healthy for potentially winnable games coming up on the schedule.

Quarterbacks:
 
Ole Miss exits fall camp the same way it entered it in regard to the quarterback race. Sophomore Bo Wallace and junior Barry Brunetti still sit even at the top of the depth chart and in the race to be the Rebels’ starting quarterback come the Sept. 1 season opener against Central Arkansas.  Both players were up and down throughout camp as a whole.

“I knew today would be a challenge because we went almost 200 plays yesterday of full [contact],” Freeze said. “It was a meat grinder. We needed it. I knew this morning the after effects of that could be a challenge, but I did think we found a way to get some good stuff done.”
