Prior to the season, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze was asked what his thoughts were on the Rebels playing host to perennial power Texas during Week 3.
Without skipping a beat, Freeze replied “Are we 2-0?”
As it turns out, the Rebels are.
Saturday, Ole Miss overcame a third-quarter lull to remain undefeated with a 28-10 victory over UTEP. (September 10, 2012, Page 1B)
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze lit up during his post game press conference when asked about H.R. Greer’s touchdown catch.
The 3-yard pass and catch from quarterback Bo Wallace marked just his second career touchdown and capped Ole Miss’ scoring for the night with 11:18 remaining in the game.
After coming out of the backfield, Greer caught Wallace’s pass and was able to beat UTEP’s defenders and dive over the front right pylon of the end zone for the touchdown. (September 10, 2012, Page 1B)

Bo Wallace, Ole Miss’ newest starting quarterback, said early last week he was anxious for his first chance to lead Hugh Freeze’s new-look offense. Prior to Saturday’s season opener against Central Arkansas, Wallace said he actually wasn’t nervous like he thought he might be.
That unexpected coolness showed in Wallace’s Rebel debut as the sophomore completed 20 of 24 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns. He also dazzled on runs with 13 carries for 82 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown run that capped Ole Miss’ opening drive. (September 3, 2012, Page 1B)

Ole Miss’ final scrimmage before the season opener Sept. 1 featured an improved offensive attack led by the running of freshmen backs I’Tavius Mathers and Jaylen Walton Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Ole Miss’ first day in full pads proved to be another strong day for the defense as the Rebels continued to struggled with turnovers. Whether it was interceptions or miscues on snaps out of the shotgun, first-year coach Hugh Freeze wasn’t too pleased with how his offense performed in team situations following Tuesday’s morning practice.
