Ole Miss Rebels starting quarterback Matt Corral was playing in his presumed final college football game. Unfortunately for the star, he will not be able to finish the game.
He was injured in the first half against the Baylor Bears in the Allstate Sugar Bowl at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. He suffered a lower-leg injury.
At this time, there is no update on his condition. Depending on the severity of his injury, it could potentially impact his draft stock.
The Rebels said that Corral would not return to the contest. He has been replaced by freshman Luke Altmyer, who will finish the game barring an injury.
Before his injury, Corral went 2 of 6 for 10 yards. He also had an interception.
Corral said that he was going to play in this game due to the relationships that he built at the school. He is expected to leave for the 2022 NFL Draft after the game.
Corral played four seasons for the Rebels. He played in 36 games at the school.
He has gone 610 of 904 for 8,271 yards prior to the Sugar Bowl start. He has thrown 57 touchdown passes and 22 interceptions.
This past season, he has gone 260 of 384 for 3,343 yards. He threw 20 touchdown passes and four interceptions.
