Ole Miss’ aggressive offense set the pace for the Rebels on the home pitch for 3-1 win over the University of Louisiana-Lafayette on a picture perfect Friday night. Rebels (2-0-1) outshot ULL (1-2-0) 22-6, controlling the attack for the majority of the night. Ole Miss also recorded six corner kicks on one Cajun corner. Freshman CeCe Kizer and junior Addie Forbus both tallied goals for the second consecutive match, Gretchen Harknett scored her first goal of the season.
With less than a week before Ole Miss’ season opener against UT-Martin, the transition from fall camp to game week preparation is already underway. With that comes the decision that everyone has been waiting for — announcing the new starting quarterback.
One of the Ole Miss volleyball team’s goals this year is to make the NCAA Tournament. The quest begins in earnest this weekend, as the Rebels kick off the 2015 season with the Magnolia Invitational. The Rebels will be joined by Northwestern State, Oral Roberts and Tennessee State for the two-day invitational. Ole Miss begins tournament action Friday at 6 p.m. against Oral Roberts. They will face Tennessee State Saturday at 12 p.m., and conclude the tournament Saturday at 7:30 p.m. versus Northwestern State. All three of Ole Miss’ matches will be broadcast live on SEC Network + via WatchESPN. (August 28, 2015, Page 6A)
Tony Bridges has already matched Senquez Golson’s interception total from a season ago. Of course, Golson, who turned himself into a second-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers, got all 10 of his against real competition last fall. Bridges has done it in preseason camp. But Ole Miss is hoping its new cornerback can eventually give opposing quarterbacks as many fits as he’s given his own this month. (August 28, 2015, Page 7A)
If the season started today, Ole Miss would have two new starters on its offensive line. Junior Robert Conyers would start at center while true freshman Javon Patterson would get the nod at left guard, head coach Hugh Freeze said following Tuesday’s practice. (August 26, 2015, Page 6A)
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze likes the totality of what he’s seen from his team since fall camp started three weeks ago, but as he goes through his seventh set of preseason practices at his third school as a head coach, he also knows there are times when his team’s going to hit a lull. Tuesday was one of those days. (August 26, 2015, Page 6A)
After a day off for the start of fall classes, the Ole Miss football team returned to the practice fields Tuesday for a little more than two hours as the Rebels continue to prepare for their season opener against UT-Martin on Sept. 5. (more…) (August 25, 2015)
It sounds simple enough. The less weight football players carry around, the faster they can move. A slimmer offensive line at Ole Miss is helping the Rebels get back to the breakneck pace on which Hugh Freeze’s spread attack is built. (August 25, 2015, Page 6)
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Southeastern Conference will help raise awareness of prostate cancer prevention and honor former commissioner Mike Slive, who battled the disease during his athletics administration career, with Prostate Cancer Awareness Games on each of the 14 league campuses during the month of September. The Prostate Cancer Awareness Game on Ole Miss’ campus will be Sept. 26 in an SEC tilt against Vanderbilt. (August 25, 2015, Page 6)
Ole Miss’ defense had a solution for just about everything teams threw at it last season. But stopping offenses that lined up and ran straight at the Rebels was a problem. (August 24, 2015, Page 6)
