NOTEBOOK: Ole Miss being real with Tide’s run defense

Ole Miss’ running game has shown some signs of life recently. The Rebels broke 200 yards on the ground for the first time three weeks ago against Louisiana-Lafayette and followed that up with 178 yards against Memphis last Saturday. Ole Miss has increased its average run to 4 yards after mustering a measly 2.9 through the first two games, a byproduct of some explosive scampers. The Rebels have ripped off runs of 71, 53, 23 and 22 yards in their last two outings. (September 30, 2014, Page 6)

      Ole Miss quickly turns attention to No. 3 Alabama

      With about 40 seconds left on the clock Saturday night, when Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze knew his team had survived a scare from Memphis, he grabbed offensive line coach Matt Luke to share a moment of relief. It was then that Freeze finally let his mind go to the game that nearly everyone’s had circled since the summer – this week’s showdown with third-ranked Alabama. (September 29, 2014, Page 6)

        Ole Miss puts Memphis away late, moves to 4-0

        Memphis put a landmine in front of Ole Miss’ path to a potential Top-10 showdown with Alabama next weekend. Ole Miss tiptoed around it. The 10th-ranked Rebels committed four turnovers and found themselves clinging to a 7-point lead early in the fourth quarter before finding the end zone twice in the final minutes to pull away for a 24-3 victory Saturday night in front of a crowd of 61,291 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 28, 2014, Page 1B)

          COLUMN: Rebels want to be taken seriously? It starts now

          Well at least that’s over. Ole Miss hadn’t broken much of a sweat since the first half of the Boise State game until Memphis made the Rebels perspire heavily for three and a half quarters Saturday night. Vanderbilt and Louisiana-Lafayette were laughers, and the game against the Broncos turned into one once Bo Wallace quit throwing passes to Boise State defenders. Ole Miss is better than it was a year ago, even if the offense and special teams didn’t show it against the Tigers. But with all due respect to Boise, Vandy, Lafayette and Memphis, there’s no way to tell exactly how much better. But we are about to find out. (September 28, 2014, Page 1B)

            Neel, MUS score late to edge Commodores

            MEMPHIS — Lafayette answered time and time against Memphis University School. But the Commodores didn’t have an answer for Colton Neel. Neel, MUS’s running back, scored four touchdowns, including a 33-yard screen pass with 2 minutes, 56 seconds left to help MUS hold off Lafayette, 29-24, on Friday at Hull-Dobbs Field on the MUS campus. (September 28, 2014, Page 5B)

                    NOTEBOOK: Mathers returns to Rebels’ backfield

                    Ole Miss’ ground game is back at full strength. Junior running back I’Tavius Mathers suffered a sprained big toe that knocked him out of the Rebels’ last game against Louisiana-Lafayette shortly after ripping off his 56-yard touchdown run, an injury Hugh Freeze feared was serious enough to possibly keep him out of this week’s game against Memphis at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 23, 2014, Page 6)
