Ole Miss returned to the practice field as a full football team Monday morning in the Indoor Practice Facility with a workout geared toward the future as well as the Rebels’ upcoming contest with Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said he liked the energy he saw from his team in their return to practice, the first as a team since before the Rebels defeated Mississippi State 41-24 in the Egg Bowl on Nov. 24. (December 18, 2012, Page 8)
