Ole Miss football has a new all-time freshman rushing leader following Saturday night’s game at Kyle Field, as Quinshon Judkins and the Rebels pounded the rock in a 31-28 victory over Texas A&M.

The Rebels ran their way through College Station with Judkins leading the charge, as Ole Miss’ 390 total rushing yards proved too much for the Aggies. Under the lights in Texas, it was the freshman Judkins who shined the brightest, as the Pike Road, Alabama, native netted a new career-high 205 rushing yards en route to becoming the program’s freshman rushing leader with 1,036 yards on the year.

Judkins now ranks fifth in program history in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns (13) in a single season, becoming just the 9th Rebel to ever pass the 1,000 rushing yard mark in a season. Furthermore, Judkins’ 205-yard effort on Saturday is just the 12th 200-yard game in Ole Miss history.

Ole Miss head football coach Lane Kiffin recapped the win, talked about the offseason feud with Aggie head coach Jimbo Fisher, and so much more. Hear what Coach Kiffin had to say right here. Video is courtesy of Ole Miss Athletics.
