I'Tavius Mathers

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

Ole Miss hasn’t had a number this low next to its name in six seasons. Not that it means a whole lot right now. 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)

Rebels looking for physical edge on the ground

NOTEBOOK: Healthy Wallace wants to ‘play within the offense’

Bo Wallace is confident in his healthy throwing shoulder. Maybe too confident. Last week’s season opener against Boise State was the Ole Miss senior quarterback’s first chance to display the renewed strength in his arm thanks to a shoulder that’s finally back to 100 percent following a separation suffered during the 2012 season. Wallace admitted it got him into trouble at times. (September 2, 2014, Page 8)

Rebels rebound from mistakes

ATLANTA- Mistakes were a plenty for Ole Miss in their 35-13 season-opening win over Boise State at the Georgia Dome Thursday night. They came in the form of interceptions, turnovers and penalties.
