While the miscues didn’t end up leading to a second-straight come-from-behind win for the opponent, the Rebels were visibly stagnant on offense and unable to slow down the Green Wave on defense coming out of halftime.
Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt said he wasn’t as worried about the third quarter lull because the Rebels held on to win this week, but it’s obvious more has to be done to prevent a slow start in the second half with Vanderbilt on the horizon. (September 13, 2010, Page 2B)

Rebel coach Houston Nutt said it was great to see Ingram, who missed the last half of summer practice and the Jacksonville State game with knee injury, back on the field. (September 8, 2010, Page 8)
