OXFORD, Miss. (WJTV) – If it feels like the future is now in Oxford, it’s because of the freshmen that shined in the Rebels’ comeback win over Texas A&M.
Obviously, there was quarterback Shea Patterson, who was honored as the SEC Freshman of the Week for his performance. But his touchdown pass to bring Ole Miss within two went to another freshman in Van Jefferson. Two starting offensive linemen, Greg Little and Alex Givens, are freshmen.
Then on defense, Benito Jones made a key fourth down stop while Deontay Anderson ended the game with an interception.
