A WIN MONDAY WOULD ...
• Give Ole Miss its most consecutive wins since the team won four-straight games from Dec. 16 - Dec. 29 of 2011.

• Give acting head coach Brett Frank a 3-0 start to his career at Ole Miss. He would join Van Chancellor as the only other Rebel head coach to start their career at least 2-0 at Ole Miss. Chancellor started his first year 7-0.

A LOSS MONDAY WOULD ...
