Fast start paces Rebels’ win over Texas A&M

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The 110,633 people who filed into Kyle Field on Saturday night made for the largest crowd to ever witness any kind of football game in Texas. They saw a dominant performance from the visitors. No. 3 Ole Miss had 21 points before the first 20 minutes ticked off the clock and used the fast start to cruise to a 35-20 victory over No. 14 Texas A&M. The win moved the Rebels to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in the Southeastern Conference, their best start in the league since 2003. (October 12, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels avoid letdown game against Aggies

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — It was supposed to be a letdown game. No. 3 Ole Miss was coming off a 23-17 win over then-No. 3 Alabama at home and watched the goalposts come down inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Experts claimed they had celebrated too much and would have a hangover effect. On top of that, the Rebels had lost their last four games that followed an Alabama game. Only one problem: Nobody told Ole Miss. (October 12, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Wunderlich to handle kicking duties at A&M

The kicking department has been one of instability for No. 3 Ole Miss during the first five games of the season. This week against No. 14 Texas A&M, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze will rely on true freshman Gary Wunderlich to bring some stability to special teams inside the hostile environment of Kyle Field Saturday night as he’ll kick field goals and extra points for the Rebels. (October 9, 2014, Page 7A)

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)

BLOG — Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze reflected on his team’s big win over Alabama and looked ahead to another top-15 matchup awaiting the Rebels this Saturday at Texas A&M, but the coach also spent part of his weekly press conference Monday revealing that one of Ole Miss’ starters will be disciplined for part of the game against the Aggies.

Rebels exeperiencing ‘new normal’ of consistent winning

It wasn’t too long ago that embarrassments on the football field were the norm for Ole Miss. Saturday’s win over then-No. 3 Alabama is part of a new culture. (October 6, 2014, Page 6)

A shift, perhaps

Local author, editor and publisher Lee White writes, in “Your Turn,” that the recent success under Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze and comparisons to coaching icon Johnny Vaught might be signaling a change for the Rebels and their fans. (October 6, 2014, Page 4)

Ole Miss rallies to down No. 3 Alabama

College football’s first four-team playoff is still three months away, but Ole Miss is officially in the conversation. The Rebels put themselves there by exorcising some demons. The 11th-ranked Rebels stayed patient against Alabama’s always stout defense and broke through late, scoring three second-half touchdowns to erase a double-digit deficit and upset the third-ranked Crimson Tide with a 23-17 victory in front of a sellout crowd of 61,826 at Vaught Hemingway Stadium on Saturday. (October 5, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Defense answered the bell against Alabama

There were times the Ole Miss defense bent, but it didn’t break in the 11th-ranked Rebels’ 23-17 upset victory over No. 3 Alabama Saturday inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The Crimson Tide offense did rack up 396 total yards of offense but was held to just 10 points. (October 5, 2014, Page 1B)

Wallace, offense figure it out in second half

It was halftime and No. 11 Ole Miss was staring a 14-3 deficit to No. 3 Alabama dead in the face. The Rebels had racked up a measly 105 yards of total offense for the first two quarters. Then they went into the locker room and made some adjustments. (October 5, 2014, Page 2B)
