Rebels expect test from LSU’s ground game

Ole Miss has beaten Alabama and Tennessee at home and traveled to College Station, Texas, to handle the Aggies of Texas A&M in the past three weeks. The road ahead does not get any easier this Saturday as the No. 3 Rebels venture to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for a night game in Death Valley against No. 24 LSU. (October 21, 2014, Page 6A)

Ole Miss defense clamps down on Vols in rout

Ole Miss’ offense took a while to get going Saturday night. Not that it mattered a whole lot. The third-ranked Rebels’ defense turned in another dominant performance, keeping Ole Miss close until the offense found its footing and suffocating Tennessee from start to finish in a 34-3 victory in front of 62,081 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (October 19, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Sanders sparks OM offense with touchdown

The Ole Miss offense was in dire need of an adrenaline shot and, for the second game this season, Vince Sanders gave it to them. (October 19, 2014, Page 1B)

Ole Miss OK with slowing down offensive pace in second half of season

As each week passes and the wins keep coming, the pressure to not falter grows stronger. No. 3 Ole Miss is solidly in the college football playoff picture and controls its own destiny, which even means pulling back on its high-paced offense to make sure mistakes do not happen.  The Rebels ran 54 plays against Texas A&M, an all-time low under head coach Hugh Freeze, and it’s something fans should get used to for the foreseeable future. (October 16, 2014, Page 6A)

Playing Vols ‘going to be fun’ for Wallace

As a youngster, Bo Wallace’s fall Saturdays consisted of breaking out his University of Tennessee gear and cheering on the home-state Volunteers. Ole Miss’ quarterback will be on the other side of things this Saturday as he tries to do his part in keeping the third-ranked Rebels’ undefeated season intact when the Southeastern Conference foes meet at 6 p.m. at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (October 14, 2014, Page 6)

Fast start paces Rebels’ win over Texas A&M

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The 110,633 people who filed into Kyle Field on Saturday night made for the largest crowd to ever witness any kind of football game in Texas. They saw a dominant performance from the visitors. No. 3 Ole Miss had 21 points before the first 20 minutes ticked off the clock and used the fast start to cruise to a 35-20 victory over No. 14 Texas A&M. The win moved the Rebels to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in the Southeastern Conference, their best start in the league since 2003. (October 12, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels avoid letdown game against Aggies

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — It was supposed to be a letdown game. No. 3 Ole Miss was coming off a 23-17 win over then-No. 3 Alabama at home and watched the goalposts come down inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Experts claimed they had celebrated too much and would have a hangover effect. On top of that, the Rebels had lost their last four games that followed an Alabama game. Only one problem: Nobody told Ole Miss. (October 12, 2014, Page 1B)

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)

Ole Miss rallies to down No. 3 Alabama

College football’s first four-team playoff is still three months away, but Ole Miss is officially in the conversation. The Rebels put themselves there by exorcising some demons. The 11th-ranked Rebels stayed patient against Alabama’s always stout defense and broke through late, scoring three second-half touchdowns to erase a double-digit deficit and upset the third-ranked Crimson Tide with a 23-17 victory in front of a sellout crowd of 61,826 at Vaught Hemingway Stadium on Saturday. (October 5, 2014, Page 1B)

Wallace, offense figure it out in second half

It was halftime and No. 11 Ole Miss was staring a 14-3 deficit to No. 3 Alabama dead in the face. The Rebels had racked up a measly 105 yards of total offense for the first two quarters. Then they went into the locker room and made some adjustments. (October 5, 2014, Page 2B)
