Final Whistle: Ole Miss puts up big numbers in loss to No. 5 Florida

Ole Miss kicked off their season with No. 5 Florida on Saturday in Oxford, Miss. The Rebels came up short 51-35 at home, but there are still a lot of things to be excited about.

Both teams took a knee prior to the kickoff in solidarity to acknowledge the unrest in the country. This did not take place during the National Anthem.

Florida was able to get on the board first, but was quickly answered from the clear starter, Matt Corral. Lane Kiffin waited until the first snap to show who his starter would be. Corral went 22-of-31 for 3 touchdowns, and one interception.
