OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi linebacker MoMo Sanogo is expected to miss about 2 ½ months after injuring an ankle Saturday in a 31-17 victory over Arkansas.

Ole Miss coach Matt Luke says Sanogo will undergo surgery Tuesday and is likely out for "roughly 10 weeks."

Sanogo, a junior from Plano, Texas, recorded four tackles in the Rebels' first two games. He made 112 tackles last season to tie for fifth place among all-Southeastern Conference players.

Ole Miss (1-1) hosts Football Championship Subdivision program Southeastern Louisiana (1-0) on Saturday.
