Team averaged 427 yards and 35 points in 2018 and last year it was 431 yards and 33.2 points per contest. Quarterback Kyle Trask returns for his senior season. Mullen did raise the Mississippi St program in his time with the Bulldogs. While improving the offense the defense still held their own allowing 18.3 points and 320 yards per game. They did a good job of getting off the field on third down. Lane Kiffin starts his first season at Ole Miss. His team returns only five on defense. Kiffin an offensive minded coach that will need time to get his players and to get his system going. It is tough for a first year head coach in a pandemic.
