The Rebels lost badly to TCU in the Peach Bowl. Coach Freeze wants more consistency down the stretch in the upcoming campaign. The Rebels lost four of six to end the season in 2014.

Nine starters return on the offensive side of the football for Ole Miss in 2015. They must replace a three-year starter at quarterback. Redshirt sophomore Ryan Buchanon looks like the early favorite coming into fall camp. Whoever the signal caller is they will have a talented group of wideouts to catch passes. Illinois native Laquon Treadwell is the headliner of the group of receivers. Treadwell missed the last four games of 2014 after breaking his ankle on what looked to be a game-winning catch in the end zone against Auburn. Running back Jaylen Walton (586) rushing yards is the main weapon out of the backfield. The offensive line is just as talented as the wide receivers. All five starters including left tackle Laremy Tunsil return. Tunsil could be the best pro prospect on the offensive line since Michael Oher. The Ole Miss offense should be on the best in the Southeastern Conference.
