A week after starting the final and most important month of the season with a Homecoming win over Louisiana-Lafayette, the Rebels found themselves as the victim of a one-sided Homecoming loss at the hands of the Tennessee Volunteers.

Bolden carried the ball 12 times for 113 yards and scored both of the team’s touchdowns in a game that was essentially decided by the start of the third quarter.
The two scores for Bolden raised his season total to 11 on the year and 20 in his career, while his rushing effort gave him five games of over 100 yards. (November 15, 2010, Page 2B)

Ole Miss’ drive to make a bowl game after its subpar start to the year continues Saturday with a road trip to Knoxville, Tenn., to play the unranked Tennessee Volunteers.
The Rebels (4-5 overall, 1-4 in the Southeastern Conference) started November strong with a much needed 43-21 win over Louisiana-Lafayette last Saturday and the players are looking to build on that success against a Tennessee team that is just 3-6 and 0-5 in the league. (November 12, 2010, Page 6A)
There are several words one can use to describe the Lafayette Commodores’ offense this season. From consistent to dynamic to prolific, the Commodores have racked up more than 3,000 yards on the ground and averaged over 40 points per game.
Running back Demarkus Dennis and quarterback Jeremy Liggins are two of the biggest reasons why the Commodores have excelled on offense, but the team’s offensive line, led by senior Austin Dennis, has also played exceptionally well in order for the skill players to succeed.

A familiar team with a familiar coach will be the Ole Miss Rebels’ opponent in the first game of the season tonight at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum.

Tonight’s game is the third in a series that started when Brady was first hired at ASU. Kennedy has won the first two that have been played at alternating sites and the goal is to make it a clean sweep. (November 12, 2010, Page 7A)
The No. 1 Commodores (12-0 overall) host the Wildcats (8-4) Friday night at William L. Buford Stadium, a year after defeating them in the second round last season at home.
Louisville, the No. 2 seed out of Region 4-4A, has won seven of its last eight games, including defeating Amanda Elzy 32-8 last week. The Wildcats are coached by M.C. Miller, who was most recently at Noxubee County and helped build that program into one of the best in the state. (November 11, 2010, Page 6)
AROUND THE SQUARE AND BEYOND: Northwest Mississippi Community College football coach Ricky Woods wants to win an MACJC state title in the worst way, but he needs the help of area players, and district players, to help him do it. The Rangers finished the 2010 season with a 9-1 overall mark, but a 52-24 loss to Gulf Coast last Saturday at Bobby Franklin Field was not the ending Woods was hoping for.

Jeremiah Masoli’s status as the starting quarterback when the Ole Miss Rebels travel to play the Tennessee Volunteers in Knoxville, Tenn., this weekend is still up in the air. Masoli is being evaluated and treated from a concussion he suffered in the Rebels’ 43-21 win over Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday. Masoli was knocked out of the game in the first quarter and did not return.
He missed practice Sunday, and after an off day on Monday, he was back at practice Tuesday, although his work was limited according to head football trainer Tim Mullins and coach Houston Nutt. (November 10, 2010, Page 8)
