Hugh Freeze

Could this be the year for Ole Miss sports?

Ole Miss fans have known heartbreak in the past.

Ole Miss RB Wilkins returns to practice

Ole Miss has one of its running backs back. It’s waiting on another. I’Tavius Mathers and Jordan Wilkins were both knocked out of the Rebels’ rout of Louisiana-Lafayette early with injuries. Mathers sprained a big toe while Wilkins suffered a sprained ankle and took a hit to the knee that required an MRI to determine the severity. But results showed nothing more than a mild sprain of Wilkins’ MCL, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said, and Wilkins was back at practice on Wednesday. (September 18, 2014, Page 8)

NOTEBOOK: Ole Miss brushing off the hype amid lofty ranking

The Rebels (3-0) came in at No. 12 in this week’s Amway coaches poll and jumped up four spots to No. 10 in The Associated Press top 25, their highest ranking since Jevan Snead and company took a No. 4 ranking to South Carolina on Sept. 24, 2009, only to lose it four quarters later with a 16-10 loss. (September 16, 2014, Page 8)

Wallace, Rebels rout UL-Lafayette, 56-15

It’s getting difficult not to think about what might be when Alabama visits Oxford in three weeks.  The second-ranks Tide has to get past Florida next weekend at home, but Alabama and No. 14 Ole Miss seem destined for a matchup of SEC unbeatens on Oct. 4, especially after the Rebels’ 56-15 dismantling of Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday afternoon in front of 60,937 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 14, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebel secondary keeps finding the ball

The Ole Miss defense picked up right where it left off in Nashville last week. The Rebels came into Saturday’s game against Louisiana-Lafayette with a Southeastern Conference-leading five interceptions, also good for enough to be tied second nationally. By the end of the  night they added three more to that total. (September 14, 2014, Page 2B)
