Hugh Freeze’s excitement level was still high almost 48 hours after his Ole Miss Rebels defeated Arkansas at War Memorial Stadium on Saturday.
Ole Miss will need that same level of excitement this weekend when they hit the road and travel to No. 6 Georgia at Sanford Stadium. (October 30, 2012, Page 6)
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Bryson Rose’s first game-winning field goal of his career couldn’t have come at more opportune time for the Ole Miss Rebels. On a clear, cool Saturday afternoon at War Memorial Stadium, Rose’s 31-yard field goal as time expired lifted the Rebels to a 30-27 win over the Arkansas Razorbacks, their first Southeastern Conference victory on the road in more than three years.
Ole Miss (5-3 overall, 2-2 SEC) trailed Arkansas (3-5, 2-3) 10-0 after the first quarter but stormed back to garner the victory by scoring 21 points in the second and getting three key field goals from Rose in the second half to earn the biggest win over Hugh Freeze’s tenure.

A week after suffering through an emotionally draining loss, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze and his Rebels were able to experience an entirely different emotion following a 41-20 win over Auburn at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium Saturday afternoon. Freeze, who was second guessed in the Rebels’ 30-27 setback to Texas A&M, showed signs of a water and Gatorade celebration performed in the locker room just minutes before talking about the Rebels’ first Southeastern Conference win in 17 tries.

If there was ever a time for Jeff Scott to make a dramatic play that helped lift the Ole Miss Rebels to their first Southeastern Conference win in 17 games, the last five minutes was as good as any. The junior running back from Miami punctuated his already strong performance in Saturday’s 41-20 win over the Tigers with a highlight reel 55-yard reception for a touchdown at the 5:02 mark of the fourth quarter.
The highlight was the spin move he made as he was being brought down by two Auburn defenders and his ability to roll over the two and keep running for a touchdown, which increased the Rebels’ lead from 27-20 to 34-20 with 5:02 left in the game. (October 15, 2012, Page 2B)

An interception by Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace with just over a minute remaining. A safety on Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel that ultimately wasn’t ruled in the Rebels’ favor.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Hugh Freeze’s face walking into Saturday night’s postgame press conference to talk about his Ole Miss Rebels’ 33-14 setback to No. 1 Alabama in front of 101,821 fans at Bryant-Denny Stadium said everything that needed to be said. It appeared that Freeze was more pleased with how his team played against the vaunted Crimson Tide even before he said as much.
His face also seemed to show disappointment with mistakes made again during the course of the game, such as the 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown turned in by Christion Jones that erased the Rebels’ only lead of the game.
In the end, Freeze was pleased with the effort, the fight and the attitude his Rebels displayed in their first road game in a hostile environment, but he just wanted the game to be a little closer late and he took blame for not allowing that to happen. (October 1, 2012, Page 1B)
