Hugh Freeze

Ole Miss quickly turns attention to No. 3 Alabama

With about 40 seconds left on the clock Saturday night, when Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze knew his team had survived a scare from Memphis, he grabbed offensive line coach Matt Luke to share a moment of relief. It was then that Freeze finally let his mind go to the game that nearly everyone’s had circled since the summer – this week’s showdown with third-ranked Alabama. (September 29, 2014, Page 6)

Ole Miss puts Memphis away late, moves to 4-0

Memphis put a landmine in front of Ole Miss’ path to a potential Top-10 showdown with Alabama next weekend. Ole Miss tiptoed around it. The 10th-ranked Rebels committed four turnovers and found themselves clinging to a 7-point lead early in the fourth quarter before finding the end zone twice in the final minutes to pull away for a 24-3 victory Saturday night in front of a crowd of 61,291 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 28, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: OM defense picks up offense with performance

With No. 10 ranked Ole Miss’ offense sputtering for much of the game against Memphis, it was up to the Rebel defense to pick up the slack. They accomplished that and more in the 24-3 victory Saturday night over the upset-minded Tigers. (September 28, 2014, Page 1B)

Wallace Struggles: Senior QB knows better effort needed

Bo Wallace reverted to some of his bad habits during Saturday night’s 24-3 win over Memphis. Wallace completed 22 of 37 passes for 248 yards and two touchdowns, but it was the two interceptions in the first half and a fumble that were cause for concern. (September 28, 2014, Page 2B)

Ole Miss preparing for ‘scary’ Memphis defense

Ole Miss has scored at least 35 points in every game this season. If the Rebels are going to reach that total again this week, coaches believe they’re going to have to earn it. (September 24, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Mathers returns to Rebels’ backfield

Ole Miss’ ground game is back at full strength. Junior running back I’Tavius Mathers suffered a sprained big toe that knocked him out of the Rebels’ last game against Louisiana-Lafayette shortly after ripping off his 56-yard touchdown run, an injury Hugh Freeze feared was serious enough to possibly keep him out of this week’s game against Memphis at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 23, 2014, Page 6)

Could this be the year for Ole Miss sports?

Ole Miss fans have known heartbreak in the past. Publisher Tim Phillips writes that this may be one of those years much like the glory years with the baseball team having made a trip to the College World Series just a few months ago and the football Rebels off to a good start this fall. (September 21, 2014, Page 4A)

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)
