Ole Miss defense clamps down on Vols in rout

Ole Miss’ offense took a while to get going Saturday night. Not that it mattered a whole lot. The third-ranked Rebels’ defense turned in another dominant performance, keeping Ole Miss close until the offense found its footing and suffocating Tennessee from start to finish in a 34-3 victory in front of 62,081 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (October 19, 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)

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: 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)

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)

Wallace, Rebels rout UL-Lafayette, 56-15

It’s getting difficult not to think about what might be when Alabama visits Oxford in three weeks.  The second-ranks Tide has to get past Florida next weekend at home, but Alabama and No. 14 Ole Miss seem destined for a matchup of SEC unbeatens on Oct. 4, especially after the Rebels’ 56-15 dismantling of Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday afternoon in front of 60,937 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 14, 2014, Page 1B)

Ole Miss thumps Vandy in SEC opener

NASHVILLE, Tenn.— Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace refrained from trying to fit passes into tight spots. It helped the Rebels pull away much sooner in its Southeastern Conference opener. (September 7, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebels looking for physical edge on the ground

Ole Miss didn’t have the success it wanted running the ball in its opening win over Boise State. Any improvement this week against Vanderbilt will have to start up front. (September 2, 2014, Page 8)

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)
