OM claims Egg Bowl, knocks MSU out of playoff

Ole Miss pulled out all the stops to dash its biggest rival’s championship dreams. The 18th-ranked Rebels ripped off their longest run of the season, got a touchdown pass from a running back and shut down Mississippi State’s vaunted running game to end the regular-season with a 31-17 victory Saturday, snapping a three-game Southeastern Conference losing streak in front of 62,058 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (November 30, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

NOTEBOOK: Injured Wallace leads OM to win

It was the Egg Bowl. Bo Wallace was not going to miss his final game inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Bum ankle or not. The senior quarterback gutted out a solid performance, leading No. 18 Ole Miss to a 31-17 victory over No. 4 Mississippi State onSaturday. (November 30, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

‘Rough’ Egg Bowl ending still fresh for Rebels a year later

Nobody’s forgotten. With Mississippi State leading Ole Miss 17-10 in last year’s Egg Bowl in Starkville, Rebel quarterback Bo Wallace looked like he was going to answer Dak Prescott’s touchdown run in overtime with one of his own to extend the game. Wallace took the snap, pulled the ball from Jaylen Walton’s belly and sprinted up the middle inside the Bulldogs’ 5-yard line on his way to the end zone. But he never got there. (November 28, 2014, Page 6A)

Rebels ‘behind Bo 100 percent’ heading into Egg Bowl

If Bo Wallace’s teammates and coaches are to be believed, Saturday can’t get here fast enough for Ole Miss’ quarterback. (November 27, 2014, Page 5)

Hogs devour sloppy Rebels

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The dream is over. The weekend started with Ole Miss still having a chance, however slim it was, to represent the Western Division in next month’s Southeastern Conference Championship Game for the first time ever. But Ole Miss doesn’t have to beat Mississippi State. And forget about the Iron Bowl. None of that matters anymore. Not after No. 8 Ole Miss never gave itself a chance against Arkansas. (November 23, 2014, Page 1B)

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)

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)

Ole Miss defense clamps down on Vols in rout

Ole Miss’ offense took a while to get going Saturday night. Not that it mattered a whole lot. The third-ranked Rebels’ defense turned in another dominant performance, keeping Ole Miss close until the offense found its footing and suffocating Tennessee from start to finish in a 34-3 victory in front of 62,081 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (October 19, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebels looking to avenge close calls against Texas A&M

Ole Miss got a win last week that had eluded the Rebels for quite some time. They’ll try to do the same thing this week. (October 10, 2014, Page 6A)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels’ Elston suspended a half against A&M

No. 3 Ole Miss is about to face the most potent passing attack it’s seen all season, and the Rebels will have to defend it without one of its starters in the secondary early on. Rebel coach Hugh Freeze has suspended junior safety Trae Elston for the first half of this Saturday’s game against No. 14 Texas A&M (8 p.m., ESPN) after Elston attempted to kick Alabama running back Kenyan Drake during the second quarter of last week’s 23-17 win over the Crimson Tide (October 7, 2014, Page 6)
