For all of Ole Miss' struggles on defense, defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix was confident his unit could turn it around if the Rebels could just start creating some turnovers.
Well, they forced three in the first half, leading to all 21 points against Kentucky. One of those was an interception by cornerback Charles Sawyer, which was Ole Miss' first interception of the season. He returned it 38 yards to the 9, setting up Ole Miss' tying touchdown in the second half.
Hartline's pass was a lazy one that Sawyer read perfectly, but the Rebels' other two turnovers came on big hits.
Nix vowed that his defense would bounce back, and the Rebels are playing with the kind of purpose and intensity you're used to seeing from Nix's defenses.
