          Rebels, TCU set to make history in Peach Bowl

          Ole Miss is about to put its name in records books forever. But the Rebels would also like to be known as the team that won a historic game rather than one that simply played in it. That’s what the No. 9-ranked Rebels will try to do on New Year’s Eve when they take on No. 6 TCU in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta. It will be the first-ever New Year’s Six bowl game played as part of the new postseason format with the birth of the four-team College Football playoff and the death of the Bowl Championship Series. (December 11, 2014, Page 6A)

                Lafayette uses PKs, defense to sweep Oxford

                Oxford and Lafayette met at Bobby Holcomb on Field Tuesday night, but it was not for a football rematch. This installment of the cross-town rivalry happened on the pitch between the high school boys and girls soccer teams.  In the boys game, it looked as if Oxford would coast to an easy win over Lafayette, leading 3-0 with less than 10 minutes remaining. But Lafayette didn’t fade into the cold night quietly and fired off three quick goals of its own to knot the game at 3, sending it to an overtime shootout. After two rounds of penalty kicks, the Commodores emerged with a 4-3 victory. (December 10, 2014, Page 1B)

                  Blue Devils run past J.Z. George in home opener

                  WATER VALLEY – Water Valley’s boys basketball team was too fast for J.Z. George. It was a small taste of the kind of frenetic pace opponents will have to deal with this season from the Blue Devils under first-year coach Larry Taylor. Water Valley applied full-court pressure after every made basket, greeted every ball handler with a trap at half-court, and turned every miss by J.Z. George into a race to the other end, overwhelming the Jaguars in a 73-30 rout Tuesday night in its home opener at the WVHS gym. (December 10, 2014, Page 2B)
