Over the last two games against Arkansas and Georgia, Ole Miss has found itself unable to move the football on the ground. 
 
The rushing attack was a key factor in the Rebels’ early season offensive success, as the team topped 150 yards rushing in six of their first seven games. However, over the last two weeks, the Rebels have combined for just 123 yards on 66 carries, averaging out to just 1.86 yards per carry.
