Bo Wallace, Ole Miss’ newest starting quarterback, said early last week he was anxious for his first chance to lead Hugh Freeze’s new-look offense. Prior to Saturday’s season opener against Central Arkansas, Wallace said he actually wasn’t nervous like he thought he might be.
That unexpected coolness showed in Wallace’s Rebel debut as the sophomore completed 20 of 24 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns. He also dazzled on runs with 13 carries for 82 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown run that capped Ole Miss’ opening drive. (September 3, 2012, Page 1B)
