Soccer Team Among Nation's Leaders

In case you haven't noticed, the Ole Miss football team (women's, that is) has dominated its opponents in the early going this year. The Rebel soccer ladies are out-scoring foes 22-1 and have fired away 133 shots, while limiting the other team to just 28 shot attempts.

The NCAA released its first version of the national statistics today, and Ole Miss is all over them. The team ranks ninth in the nation in goals per game (3.67) and seventh in goals-against average (0.167). That means Ole Miss is currently one of the nation's top 10 teams both offensively AND defensively. The Rebels are also ranked high in shutout percentage (9th at 83.3), win-loss record (26th at 5-1) and save percentage (14th at 92.9).

A trip to sunny Florida to take on a highly rated Miami Hurricane squad and FAU will put this dominant Rebel team to the test before SEC play opens. Stay tuned for more goals and more shutouts!
