NOTEBOOK: Freeze gives glimpse into future at QB position

As was expected, Ole Miss jumped out to a 35-0 lead at halftime Saturday against Presbyterian College. That large lead meant starting quarterback Bo Wallace’s day was done and it gave the fans a glimpse into what the future could potentially look like at the position as the Rebels went on to complete a 48-0 victory. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

COLUMN: Easy win follows script for OM

That was easy enough. Ole Miss showed no signs of a hangover after a pair of heart-stopping losses that could’ve made it hard for anybody to blame the Rebels if they did come out lethargic against an opponent they were going to beat by however many points they wanted to anyway. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

Dodson, Wilkins awaken OM run game

Ole Miss’ running game had been stagnant at best. Saturday against Presbyterian College, it decided to wake up. The Rebels, 48-0 winners in the non-conference game at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, had their best performance on the ground this season with 402 yards. The best effort before Saturday was 214 yards against Louisiana-Lafayette. (November 9, 2014, Page 2B)

Freeze not concerned with scoreboard Saturday

For obvious reasons, it has been a tough week for No. 12 Ole Miss to remain motivated. After five straight weeks of preparing for a Southeastern Conference opponent, the Rebels are spending this week preparing for Saturday’s game against Presbyterian (11 a.m., SEC Network) before entering their final bye week of the season. (November 6, 2014, Page 7A)

VIDEO: Rebels preview LSU

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)
