BLOG — Ole Miss will take its unbeaten record on the road for a top-25 matchup with LSU on Saturday night (6:15 p.m., ESPN) at Tiger Stadium. The Rebels are expecting it to be an old-school matchup. (more…) (October 20, 2014)

NOTEBOOK: Wunderlich to handle kicking duties at A&M

The kicking department has been one of instability for No. 3 Ole Miss during the first five games of the season. This week against No. 14 Texas A&M, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze will rely on true freshman Gary Wunderlich to bring some stability to special teams inside the hostile environment of Kyle Field Saturday night as he’ll kick field goals and extra points for the Rebels. (October 9, 2014, Page 7A)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels’ Elston suspended a half against A&M

No. 3 Ole Miss is about to face the most potent passing attack it’s seen all season, and the Rebels will have to defend it without one of its starters in the secondary early on. Rebel coach Hugh Freeze has suspended junior safety Trae Elston for the first half of this Saturday’s game against No. 14 Texas A&M (8 p.m., ESPN) after Elston attempted to kick Alabama running back Kenyan Drake during the second quarter of last week’s 23-17 win over the Crimson Tide (October 7, 2014, Page 6)

Alford leaves Ole Miss football team for baseball

No. 11 Ole Miss is preparing for one of its biggest games in program history against third-ranked Alabama, but the Rebels will be down one player as sophomore defensive back Anthony Alford left the program Tuesday. (October 1, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Ole Miss being real with Tide’s run defense

Ole Miss’ running game has shown some signs of life recently. The Rebels broke 200 yards on the ground for the first time three weeks ago against Louisiana-Lafayette and followed that up with 178 yards against Memphis last Saturday. Ole Miss has increased its average run to 4 yards after mustering a measly 2.9 through the first two games, a byproduct of some explosive scampers. The Rebels have ripped off runs of 71, 53, 23 and 22 yards in their last two outings. (September 30, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Mathers returns to Rebels’ backfield

Ole Miss’ ground game is back at full strength. Junior running back I’Tavius Mathers suffered a sprained big toe that knocked him out of the Rebels’ last game against Louisiana-Lafayette shortly after ripping off his 56-yard touchdown run, an injury Hugh Freeze feared was serious enough to possibly keep him out of this week’s game against Memphis at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 23, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Ole Miss brushing off the hype amid lofty ranking

Ole Miss hasn’t had a number this low next to its name in six seasons. Not that it means a whole lot right now. The Rebels (3-0) came in at No. 12 in this week’s Amway coaches poll and jumped up four spots to No. 10 in The Associated Press top 25, their highest ranking since Jevan Snead and company took a No. 4 ranking to South Carolina on Sept. 24, 2009, only to lose it four quarters later with a 16-10 loss. (September 16, 2014, Page 8)

Ole Miss NOTEBOOK: LBs Nkemdiche, Bryant productive in returns

NASHVILLE, Tenn.— The Ole Miss defense was back at full strength for the first time this season as it got two important pieces back in Saturday’s 41-3 victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores. (September 7, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebels rebound from mistakes

ATLANTA- Mistakes were a plenty for Ole Miss in their 35-13 season-opening win over Boise State at the Georgia Dome Thursday night. They came in the form of interceptions, turnovers and penalties. Throw in a poor running game and the Rebels couldn’t get out of their own way for most of the game. (August 29, 2014, Page 2B)
