Mississippi starting left tackle Laremy Tunsil will miss the Rebels' game Saturday against Memphis in addition to the six games he has already sat out after the NCAA ruled he received several improper benefits.

Among the benefits the NCAA says Tunsil received: Three loaner vehicles over a 6-month period, a four-month interest-free promissory note on a $3,000 down payment when purchasing a used vehicle and an airline ticket.

The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Tunsil - a junior who has started most of the past two seasons - will be eligible to return after his seven-game suspension on Oct. 24 against Texas A&M.

Ole Miss announced during the summer that it was working with the NCAA because of allegations that Tunsil had received improper benefits and had illegal contact with agents.
