Mississippi has clawed through the most difficult part of its schedule with mixed success.
Now the Rebels hope to pile up some wins down the stretch.
Mississippi (4-3) hosts Idaho (1-6) on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, stepping out of the Southeastern Conference for the first time since mid-September.
The Rebels are still basking in the glory of a stunning 27-24 victory over then-No. 6 LSU last Saturday. The victory came after three straight losses to Alabama, Auburn and Texas A&M.
It was a satisfying end to a difficult stretch, but now the Rebels are beat-up physically. About a half-dozen defensive players, including linebacker Serderius Bryant (concussion) and defensive end Robert Nkemdiche (hamstring), are trying to recover from injuries.
Idaho will be more than a 40-point underdog on Saturday.
