Rebels, TCU set to make history in Peach Bowl

Ole Miss is about to put its name in records books forever. But the Rebels would also like to be known as the team that won a historic game rather than one that simply played in it. That’s what the No. 9-ranked Rebels will try to do on New Year’s Eve when they take on No. 6 TCU in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta. It will be the first-ever New Year’s Six bowl game played as part of the new postseason format with the birth of the four-team College Football playoff and the death of the Bowl Championship Series. (December 11, 2014, Page 6A)

Rebel D slows down MSU rushing game

The Ole Miss defense knew what its job was: Stop the Mississippi State tandem of quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Josh Robinson from dicing them up with their feet like they had so many other teams this season. Mission accomplished. The Rebels’ rush defense held Mississippi State to 163 total yards on the ground and just 92 between Prescott (48 yards) and Robinson (44 yards) in the Rebels’ 31-17 victory over the No. 4 Bulldogs on Saturday night. (November 30, 2014, Page 2B)
