Ole Miss lands commitment from top JUCO QB Kelly

Ole Miss may have found its replacement for Bo Wallace. East Mississippi Community College quarterback Chad Kelly verbally committed to Ole Miss on Wednesday following a visit to the school. Kelly, the nephew of NFL Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, is widely regarded as the nation’s top junior college signal caller. Kelly, who has two seasons of eligibility left, announced his decision on Twitter before confirming it later. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Kelly chose the Rebels over Indiana, Virginia Tech and LSU among others. (December 11, 2014, Page 6A)

    Rebels, TCU set to make history in Peach Bowl

    Ole Miss is about to put its name in records books forever. But the Rebels would also like to be known as the team that won a historic game rather than one that simply played in it. That’s what the No. 9-ranked Rebels will try to do on New Year’s Eve when they take on No. 6 TCU in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta. It will be the first-ever New Year’s Six bowl game played as part of the new postseason format with the birth of the four-team College Football playoff and the death of the Bowl Championship Series. (December 11, 2014, Page 6A)

        Blue Devils run past J.Z. George in home opener

        WATER VALLEY – Water Valley’s boys basketball team was too fast for J.Z. George. It was a small taste of the kind of frenetic pace opponents will have to deal with this season from the Blue Devils under first-year coach Larry Taylor. Water Valley applied full-court pressure after every made basket, greeted every ball handler with a trap at half-court, and turned every miss by J.Z. George into a race to the other end, overwhelming the Jaguars in a 73-30 rout Tuesday night in its home opener at the WVHS gym. (December 10, 2014, Page 2B)

              Oxford’s quest for first state championship falls short

              STARKVILLE — Oxford didn’t finish the drill. A rallying cry that was born out of the championship disappointment of a season ago carried Oxford all year. The Chargers spent all of August, September, October and November earning its way back to the final day of the season in December to give themselves another shot at the MHSAA Class 5A state title. (December 7, 2014, Page 1B)

                  Fans attending the MHSAA Class 5A state championship game better find a comfortable seat inside Mississippi State’s Davis Wade Stadium. They could be there a while.

                    Offense goes cold in Rebels’ loss to TCU

                    Any momentum the Ole Miss men’s basketball team created over the weekend is gone. The Rebels struggled to score form anywhere on the floor, going through extended scoring droughts through the night, and an early back-and-forth affair turned into an easy victory for TCU as the Horned Frogs ended Ole Miss’ five-game winning streak with a 66-54 win Thursday at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum in the SEC-Big 12 Challenge. (December 5, 2014, Page 6A)
