Two weeks after turnovers and general miscues cost Ole Miss in its Southeastern Conference opener against Vanderbilt, it was turnovers by Kentucky that ultimately propelled the Rebels past the Wildcats on Saturday afternoon at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
Three turnovers by UK directly led to 21 points for Ole Miss and proved to be the deciding factor in a 42-35 win in front of a crowd of 55,344 and a regional television audience. Instead of seeing another team return an interception for a score or scoop a fumble up deep in their own territory, it was the Rebels (3-2 overall, 1-1 in the SEC) who played the part of ungracious hosts to the Wildcats (3-2, 0-2).

A bye week couldn’t be coming at a better time for the Ole Miss Rebels. A season already filled with injuries to key players got worse for the team in Saturday’s 42-35 win over Kentucky. The Rebels lost three members of the defensive secondary to concussions, while center A.J. Hawkins left the game late with an undisclosed ailment.
For Ole Miss defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix, the bye week allows him to rest some players and get some back into the lineup. Those that can’t return, will be replaced by younger players who will see more reps in practice this week. (October 4, 2010, Page 2B)
Want to know how far of a hike it is from Oxford High School to Bramlett Elementary School? Just ask any number of Chargers who because of either turning the ball over or being charged with a costly penalty during last week’s loss at New Hope, had the honor of running up Bramlett Hill in across the street from the high school following the conclusion of Wednesday’s practice.
The purpose? To alleviate the mental mistakes that cost Oxford a win in its first region game last week when they host another Region 1-5A team, Clarksdale, on Friday at 7 p.m. (September 30, 2010, Page 8)
A re-engergized Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt seemed ready to lead his team back into Southeastern Conference play two days after the Rebels recorded their most impressive win of the season.

An offensive explosion, led by the running of Brandon Bolden, and a defensive unit that did much better against the run game ultimately propelled the Ole Miss Rebels to a much needed home win Saturday night.
The Rebels pounded Fresno State 55-38 in front of a crowd of 55,267 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium by winning the battle up front on both sides of the ball. Ole Miss’ offense totaled a season-high 578 yards with 425 yards coming on the ground, while a beleaguered defense that struggled at key times last week against Vanderbilt, shut down the Bulldogs’ ground game to the tune of just 30 yards on 33 carries.
Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt was visibly pleased with the results and the manner in which his team won its first home game of the year. (September 27, 2010, Page 1B)
A season of frustration running the ball for the Ole Miss Rebels was eliminated in one night thanks to the sensational performance of junior Brandon Bolden on Saturday night in the team’s 55-38 win over Fresno State.
The Baton Rouge, La., native had a career night running the ball as he totaled 228 yards and two rushing scores on 19 carries. The performance was the focal point of a running attack that amassed a season-high 425 yards, while Bolden’s total ranked sixth best in school history. (September 27, 2010, Page 1B)
