TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Different year, same result.

It’s been a season of firsts so far for the No. 21 Ole Miss Rebels. Off to their best start since 1989 at 3-0, the Rebels are looking to start a campaign 4-0 for the first time since Archie Manning was the quarterback in 1970.
In order for the Rebels to accomplish that goal, they will have to do something no other team in school history has ever done — defeat a top-ranked team. (September 27, 2013, Page 6A)
Rest assured, this won’t be the David Cutcliffe loss. It probably won’t be the Ed Orgeron loss, but it might be the Houston Nutt loss. (September 27, 2013, Page 7A)

Ole Miss has built some momentum under second-year head coach Hugh Freeze, winning its last five games dating back to last season and vaulting into the rankings for the first time since 2009.

Ole Miss is averaging 490 yards per game, yet 32 other teams around the country rank higher than the Rebels in total offense. Such is life in modern-day college football. (September 19, 2013, Page 8)
Ole Miss has made it through the first three weeks of the season unscathed, beginning a campaign 3-0 for the first time since 1989. Now it’s time for the Rebels to clean up the mistakes, break any obvious repetitions and get healthy for an upcoming schedule that head coach Hugh Freeze called “probably the toughest stretch of games that anyone will have to play this year.” (September 17, 2013, Page 6)
