OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze did much of his homework on Texas before the season even began.
Now he's left wondering if all that study time will have any use.
In a flip of the script that few saw coming, it's No. 25 Ole Miss (2-0) that will be the nationally ranked program on Saturday in Austin, Texas.
The Longhorns (1-1), on the other hand, are sorting through the aftermath of a disastrous loss to BYU that resulted in coach Mack Brown firing defensive coordinator Manny Diaz and replacing him with Greg Robinson.
Changing coordinators after the season's second game is certainly not an ideal situation for Texas. But it's also shaken Freeze, who spent part of his summer studying the Longhorns.
