“Dr.” Bo Wallace is the most experienced quarterback in the SEC. He’s started 34 games for the Rebels over the last three seasons, and could leave Oxford with a boatload of school records – which is no small feat since he will have taken nearly every single one of them from Eli Manning.

As of now, Wallace ranks second to Manning in total yards, total touchdowns, touchdown passes, passing yards, completions, and pass attempts. The senior currently holds the school record for career completion percentage (63.9%) and pass efficiency rating (144.9) and he and Manning both have ten 300-yard passing games.

  • Wallace is currently the SEC’s active leader in six major offensive categories. No player in the conference has as many total yards (9,322), total touchdowns (74), completions (669), passing attempts (1,047) passing yards (8,415) or touchdown passes (58).

    This season, the 6-foot-4, 217-pound signal caller has completed 151 of 242 passing attempts (62.4%) for 2,075 yards (which ranks fourth in the league), 18 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He’s also the team’s third leading rusher with 162 yards and two rushing TDs.

    Known for turning the ball over at inopportune times, “Bad” Bo Wallace threw his first SEC interception of the season on the team’s final offensive play against LSU. The pick was the first for Wallace in 127 attempts, which was a personal best, and was the first turnover for the QB against an SEC opponent this year.

    He’s lacked accuracy in each of the last two games and completed only 28 of 65 passes against LSU and Tennessee (43.1%), and his 176 yards last week against the Tigers were the fewest of the season for the Rebels.

    While Wallace is the unquestioned starter for the Rebels, he won’t be the only quarterback to take snaps against Auburn. Jeremy Liggins – a 300-pound monster – handles many short yardage situations. Liggins has gained 47 yards on 17 carries this season, including a touchdown, but has attempted only one pass.

    Ryan Buchanan and DeVante Kincade are Wallace’s primary backups, however and would play should the senior be injured. Buchanan has played in all eight games this season. He’s 5-for-9 passing with 42 yards.
