TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Different year, same result.
Alabama tailbacks T.J. Yeldon and Kenyan Drake combined to run for 220 yards and two touchdowns, and the top-ranked Crimson Tide continued their dominance over Ole Miss with a 25-0 victory over the No. 21 Rebels Saturday night at Bryant-Denny Stadium. (September 30, 2013, Page 1B)
AUSTIN, Texas — Ole Miss’ next step as a program under coach Hugh Freeze came at the expense of the tailspinning Texas Longhorns.
A year after the Longhorns came to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and won by 35 points, the No. 25 Rebels returned the favor in the form of a 44-23 win Saturday night. (September 16, 2013, Page 1B)
On the surface, Ole Miss’ offense was highly productive against Southeast Missouri. How much the offense produced, though, depended greatly on who was under center. (September 9, 2013, Page 1B)
COLUMN: August nears, and optimism reigns. College football is never more popular in the drowsiest of the summer months, if only because fans starved for the game begin hoping and explaining away potential problems about their team with a litany of best case scenarios.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Ole Miss’ dramatic turnaround on the gridiron in Hugh Freeze’s first season was punctuated with an impressive, record-setting win in the annual BBVA Compass Bowl Saturday. Led by quarterback Bo Wallace, this year’s Fred Sington MVP winner, on offense and linebacker Mike Marry on defense, the Rebels defeated Pittsburgh 38-17 in front of a new bowl record crowd of 59,135 at Legion Field.

Hugh Freeze’s plan of keeping Saturday’s epic game with No. 14 Texas close and allowing the near record crowd of 61,797 at Ole Miss’ Vaught-Hemingway Stadium to help his Rebels late never materialized.
Instead of heading into the fourth quarter down just a field goal or a touchdown, the Rebels trailed the Longhorns by 28 (52-24) with no hope of ever catching them thanks to his defense’s inability to slow quarterback David Ash or a running game that totaled 350 yards overall. (September 17, 2012, Page 1B)
Defense was supposed to be the strength of the No. 14 Texas Longhorns, not the throwing of sophomore quarterback David Ash. For a quarterback who had only thrown for 377 yards the first two games combined, Ash turned in a career-best night by throwing for 326 yards and four touchdowns.
He connected on 15 straight passes during the game — which was three off the record held by Colt McCoy — and finished a blistering 19-for-23 overall.
Texas’ offense finished the game with 676 yards of total offense that also included 350 yards on the ground. (September 17, 2012, Page 1B)

Prior to the season, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze was asked what his thoughts were on the Rebels playing host to perennial power Texas during Week 3.
Without skipping a beat, Freeze replied “Are we 2-0?”
As it turns out, the Rebels are.
Saturday, Ole Miss overcame a third-quarter lull to remain undefeated with a 28-10 victory over UTEP. (September 10, 2012, Page 1B)
