As Ole Miss heads into Week 3 of the college football season, head coach Lane Kiffin is remaining mum on who will be the team’s starting quarterback.
Kiffin was asked by David Kellum, host of RebTalk and the voice of the Rebels, on Thursday night whether Luke Altmyer of Jaxson Dart would get the start versus Georgia Tech on Saturday.
“I would anticipate them both playing,” Kiffin answered. “They’ve got to keep getting better and make plays around them.”
Earlier in the week, Kiffin had a similar answer for reporters during his weekly press conference.
“We’re just going to push forward the way we’ve been going,” Kiffin said. “We’re 2-0, so we’ll figure out [which quarterback] goes first later in the week probably.”
Dart and Altmyer have each received one start on the season. Through two games, Dart is 28-42 passing for 336 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. Altmyer, who’s seen less playing time partially due to a shoulder injury against Central Arkansas, is 7-15 passing for 103 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He’s also added one touchdown on the ground.
The Rebels and Yellow Jackets are set to kick off at 2:30 p.m. CT. The game will be televised on ABC and can be heard on the Ole Miss Football Radio Network.
