Bo Wallace Needs To Steer Ole Miss Back On Winning Path With More Confidence

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

Bo Wallace almost enjoyed getting the best of Johnny Manziel with a winning performance for Ole Miss against Manziel’s Texas A&M Aggies. It didn’t happen with the Aggies pulling out a come-from-behind win to hand Ole Miss its third straight loss.

But he still proved that he’s a quality SEC quarterback. Wallace can now start showing that he’s a better quarterback than most of the rest of the signal-callers in the Southeastern Conference.

Wallace is an excellent SEC quarterback, although he obviously didn’t show it against Alabama in the 25-0 loss, which is really no shame since most quarterbacks struggle against the Crimson Tide. But after two straight losses for Ole Miss, Wallace had to prove that the Rebels could still be NCAA winners.

He and his Ole Miss teammates met major disappointment, but it’s up to Wallace to help his team salvage the rest of the season despite being 3-3.

Texas A&M knew they were going to have their hands full with Wallace. He came into the game with the Aggies at 59 percent completions at 98-of-166 with only two interceptions and six touchdowns and an average of 228.6 yards per game. His rushing skills were limited with only a net of 117 on 61 times with the ball in his hands.

But there’s something about the home crowd at Ole Miss that can bring a quarterback back to life. Such was definitely the case for Wallace, and it can still be that way for the rest of the season. He’s been showing good leadership confidence and it didn’t hurt that he almost beat Manziel.

That should make Wallace confident for every game for the rest of the season. The result could still be a major bowl game for Wallace and his teammates, and the chance to continue to showcase his outstanding skills as an SEC quarterback.
