The result was just 17 points (including a big fat zero in the second half). That's the fewest points scored on Ole Miss this year by anyone not named Louisiana-Monroe. "You want to be as balanced as you possibly can," Zook said. "Obviously, hindsight being 20-20, maybe we could've thrown it a couple more times."
