Freshman Jacob Eason is the starting quarterback for the Bulldogs. Eason was the top quarterback recruit in the country and has had a solid start to the season. He is 48-of-87 for 643 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions.
Eason will face an Ole Miss defensive line that has the ability to dial up the pressure and will look to push the young quarterback into making mistakes.
