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

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)

Would the Rebels be able to quickly refocus for the next landmine set in front of them in the brutal SEC West? Ole Miss not only turned the page, they slammed the book on Texas A&M. (October 12, 2014, Page 1B)
