Special teams could once again play a role in Death Valley

The role of Special teams is always vital in a football game. When Ole Miss and LSU get together that role is kick up a notch and more times than not decides the outcome.  The now infamous Billy Cannon game-winning punt return in 1959 all the way to Odell Beckham Jr.’s 89-yard punt return in 2012, special teams has defined this rivalry. (October 23, 2014, Page 7A)

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)

NOTEBOOK: Defense answered the bell against Alabama

There were times the Ole Miss defense bent, but it didn’t break in the 11th-ranked Rebels’ 23-17 upset victory over No. 3 Alabama Saturday inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The Crimson Tide offense did rack up 396 total yards of offense but was held to just 10 points. (October 5, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: OM defense picks up offense with performance

With No. 10 ranked Ole Miss’ offense sputtering for much of the game against Memphis, it was up to the Rebel defense to pick up the slack. They accomplished that and more in the 24-3 victory Saturday night over the upset-minded Tigers. (September 28, 2014, Page 1B)

Ole Miss thumps Vandy in SEC opener

NASHVILLE, Tenn.— Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace refrained from trying to fit passes into tight spots. It helped the Rebels pull away much sooner in its Southeastern Conference opener. (September 7, 2014, Page 1B)

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)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels’ Liggins getting work exclusively as tight end

Any packages that had Jeremy Liggins operating as the quarterback have been scratched from Ole Miss’ playbook. Liggins moved from quarterback to tight end at the start of fall camp, but the former Lafayette High standout was still moonlighting as a Wildcat quarterback at times. That’s no longer the case as the 6-foot-3, 296-pound Liggins continues to learn the nuances of his new position. (August 25, 2014, Page 7)

Ole Miss continues preparations for Boise St.

With the season opener just over a week away, the Ole Miss football team took to the outdoor practice fields Wednesday morning in preparation for its season opener with Boise State next Thursday. (August 21, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels finding answers along offensive line

Ole Miss knows four of the offensive linemen who will take the field for the Rebels’ first snap of the season against Boise State Aug. 28. Now the Rebels just need a center. (August 19, 2014, Page 8)
