Ole Miss is idle Saturday after playing five straight games including four at home. Nutt said that Ole Miss Head Athletic Trainer Tim Mullins will track the progress of the two players who suffered concussions in Saturday’s win over Kentucky each day. He also announced that center A.J. Hawkins suffered a stinger in his shoulder that prevented him from finishing the game. (October 5, 2010, Page 8)
Two weeks after turnovers and general miscues cost Ole Miss in its Southeastern Conference opener against Vanderbilt, it was turnovers by Kentucky that ultimately propelled the Rebels past the Wildcats on Saturday afternoon at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
Three turnovers by UK directly led to 21 points for Ole Miss and proved to be the deciding factor in a 42-35 win in front of a crowd of 55,344 and a regional television audience. Instead of seeing another team return an interception for a score or scoop a fumble up deep in their own territory, it was the Rebels (3-2 overall, 1-1 in the SEC) who played the part of ungracious hosts to the Wildcats (3-2, 0-2).

An offensive explosion, led by the running of Brandon Bolden, and a defensive unit that did much better against the run game ultimately propelled the Ole Miss Rebels to a much needed home win Saturday night.
The Rebels pounded Fresno State 55-38 in front of a crowd of 55,267 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium by winning the battle up front on both sides of the ball. Ole Miss’ offense totaled a season-high 578 yards with 425 yards coming on the ground, while a beleaguered defense that struggled at key times last week against Vanderbilt, shut down the Bulldogs’ ground game to the tune of just 30 yards on 33 carries.
Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt was visibly pleased with the results and the manner in which his team won its first home game of the year. (September 27, 2010, Page 1B)

The shock on Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt’s face following Saturday’s loss to Jacksonville State was as apparent as the 49-48 score posted on the Jumbotron at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium following the second overtime period.
The Rebels, a team that was riding a wave of positive emotion after Friday’s announcement that quarterback Jeremiah Masoli would be allowed to play this season, have suddenly gone from a team that some thought would win eight or nine games to one that some think may finish below .500.
Losses in the season opener always hurt, but a loss to a lower division team coached by Nutt’s former employer hurt even more, especially when the Rebels led 31-13 after the third quarter and had their chances to stop the Gamecocks in both the late stages of regulation and overtime.

Summer camps aren’t just for high schoolers and aspiring collegiate football players.
Two weeks ago Ole Miss quarterback Nathan Stanley joined a handful of other college signal callers, and a slew of high schoolers, in Thibodaux, La., for the 2010 Manning Passing Academy.
During the four-day camp, Stanley possibly got as much out of being around pros like Peyton and Eli Manning, as the high schoolers who were in attendance. (July 20, 2010, Page 6A)
