The Ole Miss Rebels faded down the stretch of the regular season by losing four of their last five games including three in a row. Lane Kiffin’s bunch started 7-0 before the skid, but the program received great news as it appears he will stick around following rumors of him taking the Auburn job. The strength of this offense is in the running game where Ole Miss ranked 10th in yards per rush attempt (5.4) against FBS opponents when the regular season ended. Quinshon Judkins rushed for 1,476 yards with 16 touchdowns this season.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders won their final three games of the regular season and are in a bowl game in the first season under head coach Joey McGuire.

He completed 31-of-50 passes for 436 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in a 51-48 win over the Oklahoma Sooners in the final game of the regular season.
