Judd gets chance to show power in Rebels’ backfield

Ole Miss didn’t get much power out of its running game last season. Akeem Judd may be able to help with that. The Rebels have amped up the physicality on the ground this spring, emphasizing what head coach Hugh Freeze called “good, dirty runs.” Judd, who’s going through his first spring at Ole Miss, is impressing in that role. (March 30, 2015, Page 6)

QBs turn in clean sheet in Ole Miss’ scrimmage

Dan Werner demands three things from his quarterbacks in Ole Miss’ offense: Protect the football, stay ahead of the chains and go fast. Rattling off that checklist and executing it are two different things, but the Rebels’ offensive coordinator liked he what he saw from his signal callers Saturday in a game-like situation. (March 29, 2015, Page 1B)

Ole Miss’ quarterback competition ‘really close’

There’s been little separation this spring among the candidates vying to take over the reins of Ole Miss’ offense from Bo Wallace. And it doesn’t sound like the race to be the Rebels’ next quarterback will end anytime soon. Rising sophomores Ryan Buchanan and DeVante Kincade have been biding their time the last two seasons while junior-to-be Chad Kelly came from the junior college ranks in January to add a third competitor to the mix. (March 27, 2015, Page 1B)

Ole Miss gets commitment from top prep QB Patterson

It’s early, but Ole Miss is piecing together one of the nation’s best recruiting classes for 2016. The Rebels added arguably their most important piece to it Tuesday. Calvary Baptist Academy (Shreveport, Louisiana) quarterback Shea Patterson gave his verbal commitment to Ole Miss during a ceremony at his school. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Patterson chose the Rebels over LSU and USC. (February 18, 2015, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Arkansas’ fast start puts Rebels on their heels

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — By the time the first quarter struck triple zeroes on the scoreboard, No. 8 Ole Miss was staring at a 17-point deficit to the Arkansas Razorbacks, the largest hole the Rebels have found themselves in all season. (November 23, 2014, Page 1B)

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)

Ole Miss taking advantage of extra time in preparation for Razorbacks

It may be the middle of No. 10 Ole Miss’ second bye week, but that is not stopping the Rebels from getting a jumpstart on their preparation for their Nov. 22 game against Arkansas. (November 13, 2014, Page 6A)

Dodson, Wilkins awaken OM run game

Ole Miss’ running game had been stagnant at best. Saturday against Presbyterian College, it decided to wake up. The Rebels, 48-0 winners in the non-conference game at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, had their best performance on the ground this season with 402 yards. The best effort before Saturday was 214 yards against Louisiana-Lafayette. (November 9, 2014, Page 2B)

Ole Miss prepares for life without Treadwell

On Oct. 24, Ole Miss was a top-5 team and very much in control of its destiny regarding the SEC Championship and even the national title conversation.  Two heartbreaking losses to LSU and Auburn later, and the 12th-ranked Rebels are now trying to right the ship in a season that went off course in a matter of eight days. (November 3, 2014, Page 6)

Missed opportunities doom Rebs in loss

Saturday night’s Ole Miss-Auburn game had a very similar theme to the one played seven days ago in Death Valley at LSU. Ole Miss had its chances to put No. 3 Auburn away in the final stages of the game but turnovers and a potentially devastating injury cost the Rebels in a 35-31 loss. (November 2, 2014, Page 2B)
