Ole Miss pass rush presents problems

It’s eye-popping enough that Ole Miss has nine sacks. That’s good for fourth nationally. But those nine sacks have come from 11 different people -- four guys have .5 sacks each.

Texas, which allowed its first two sacks last week, knows the defensive front of the Rebels could present a problem.

"Those guys will be a faster football team all around," said Harsin of the Rebels’ defensive line. "It comes down to guys helping each other out in pass situations, the backs or whoever else can help with those situations, the tackle and interior guys."

Of course, it also comes down to David Ash making quick and good decisions. To date, he has done that. Ash has not thrown an interception in his last three starts. But he has also not been under duress.

"The ball needs to be out of your hands somehow, some way, throw it away or get up field and run," Harsin said. "So that will help us eliminate sacks in those situations."
