NCAA Football: Mississippi at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The No. 13 Ole Miss Rebels will host the Louisiana Monroe Warhawks at noon ET this afternoon and quarterback Jaxson Dart will get the start for today’s contest.

Dart suffered what appeared to be a collarbone injury in the third quarter of last week’s 52-17 loss at Georgia and went to the locker room for further evaluation. Afterwards, head coach Lane Kiffin confirmed that he was cleared to return, but there was no point considering that the game was already well out of reach. Backup Spencer Sanders ended up finishing the contest. Outside of being stonewalled by Alabama and Georgia, Dart has been an effective piece of a Rebel team that is on track to finishing the regular season with 10 wins. The USC transfer has thrown for 2,579 yards, rushed for 354 yards, and accounted for 23 touchdowns on the year.

Ole Miss enters today’s contest as a heavy 37-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. The total is listed at 62.5.
