Bo Wallace

Wallace’s bad day looms large for Rebels

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— There is a song that says, “Mama always said there’d be days like this.” Rebel quarterback Bo Wallace had one of those days in No. 8 Ole Miss’ 30-0 loss to Arkansas Saturday. Heading into the game, Wallace had only thrown one interception in Southeastern Conference play. That number jumped up to three after Wallace tossed two at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. (November 23, 2014, Page 2B)

Rebels prep for Arkansas’ physicality on both sides

Arkansas is well-known for its ground-and-pound style on offense. The Razorbacks can play a little defense, too. Arkansas will take its turn at trying to wear down a fast yet smaller Ole Miss defense that’s given up a combined 517 rushing yards in its last two Southeastern Conference games when the teams meet Saturday at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium (2:30 p.m., CBS). (November 18, 2014, Page 6)

Ole Miss gets back to basics in first practice of open date

Ole Miss has started dabbling in the game plan for Arkansas, but with the matchup against the Razorbacks nearly two weeks away, the Rebels have some time to refine the fundamentals that get lost over the course of a 12-game regular season. The Rebels spent most of Tuesday’s practice getting back to the basics, much to the pleasure of coach Hugh Freeze. (November 12, 2014, Page 1B)

Bye week will ‘certainly help’ Rebels heal for final stretch

It was tempting, but Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze knew he couldn’t. Senior quarterback Bo Wallace entered Saturday’s game against Presbyterian College just 262 yards shy of breaking Eli Manning’s school record for total offense. Wallace accumulated 155 total yards in two quarters, but with Ole Miss holding a 35-0 lead at the break, his day was done. At this point of the season, health trumps statistics. (November 11, 2014, Page 6)

Rebels overwhelm Presbyterian College in rout

No. 12 Ole Miss jumped on its lone Football Championship Subdivision opponent of the season, got its backups a ton of snaps and overwhelmed Presbyterian College for a 48-0 win in front of 60,546 fans clad mostly in red and blue. Ole Miss (8-2 overall) had a handful of starters sitting with injuries, but it didn’t stop the Rebels from turning in gobs of big plays against the overmatched Blue Hose (5-5) and ending a two-game losing streak heading into its second bye week of the season. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

Ole Miss drops to No. 11 in latest CFB playoff rankings

After Saturday’s loss to Auburn, its second of the season, Ole Miss’ playoff chances are bleak.  The Rebels (7-2, 4-2 SEC) dropped from No. 4 to No. 11 in the second round of College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday night and were the first two-loss team on the board. They were even ranked above one-loss teams Baylor (12), Nebraska (13) and Ohio State (14). (November 5, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebels want to take care of business, then rest

Essentially No. 12 Ole Miss has two bye weeks with Presbyterian coming to town for an 11 a.m. kickoff Saturday and its final bye week of the season next weekend. It couldn’t come at a better time after coming out of a stretch of five Southeastern Conference games head coach Hugh Freeze called “murderer’s row.” (November 4, 2014, Page 6)

Treadwell’s career night ends with fumble, injury

Laquon Treadwell got 19 yards. He needed 20. Ole Miss’ sophomore wideout caught his final pass of the night, weaved his way through Auburn’s defense and fought off defenders on his way toward the end zone. But Kris Frost caught up to jar the ball loose from behind, and Auburn’s Cassanova McKinzy recovered in the end zone with 1 minute, 30 seconds left. (November 2, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Ole Miss defense no match for Tigers’ offense

The Ole Miss defense had allowed just eight touchdowns all season. Saturday night the Auburn offense scored five in a 35-31 victory over the Rebels at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. It was not the best outing for one of the nation’s best defenses, which allowed more than 20 points for the first time in 10 games. (November 2, 2014, Page 1B)
