Ole Miss let 'atmosphere dictate' their play

Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace admitted Monday the Tiger Stadium crowd affected his and the offense's performance Saturday against LSU

Tiger Stadium proved against Ole Miss it's one of the most intimidating venues in all of sports.

Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace admitted Monday that the atmosphere Saturday had an affect on his performance against LSU. Wallace, who entered the game as one of the SEC's top quarterbacks, went just 14-for-33 for 176 yards with one touchdown and an interception in the closing seconds that ultimately sealed the Rebels' fate.

“I think it definitely had an effect," Wallace said of the Tiger Stadium environment. "I think the biggest thing was we let the atmosphere dictate how we played. As a quarterback, I’ve prided myself this year on keeping guys calm and being calm, and I didn’t do a great job of that. Our offense didn’t do a great job of that.”

Wallace spoke to reporters in Oxford about his performance in that game, and what LSU did to rattle him. Scout's Ben Garrett with OMSpirit.com captured video of Wallace's press conference, which you can watch in full at the link below.
