Nutt Says Rebels Need to Finish Stronger

  Ole Miss Lineman Peria Jerry is the S.E.C's Defensive Player of the Week for the job he did in the Rebels win at Arkansas..

The Senior from Batesville with 5-tackles, including Two Sacks and Two Quarterback Hurries.

The Rebels raced out to a 20-to-3 lead in Fayetteville, then had to hold on as the Hogs stormed back to make it a 2 point game in the final minute.

Ole Miss Head Coach Houston Nutt says his team can put the hammer down..but still struggles to nail the coffin shut.

"We're up 20-to-7...if we take that next possession and punch it in...then that really puts the pressure on the other side.  Instead, we let them get back in the game...and that puts pressure on us. We've got to, when we have a lead, take the other team totally out of it. Finish it off. Then we'll be rolling."

  The Rebels host Auburn Saturday in Oxford.
