By the time Ole Miss’ offense was finished disposing of Troy’s defense, the Rebels turned in the most productive performance in program history. (November 18, 2013, Page 1B)
The good news for the Ole Miss football team is that two straight wins, including one over a top-10 team at the time, have erased the bad taste of a midseason swoon. The bad news is that the momentum of those victories may have been halted with the season’s second open date last week. (November 5, 2013, Page 6)
A case of pink eye to Bo Wallace allowed Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze to see a little more from redshirt freshmen quarterbacks Devante Kincade and Ryan Buchanan at practice Tuesday. Freeze said he planned to get those two more reps to see where they were in their development regardless of who was out, but Wallace not being able to practice certainly garnered even more reps for them.

In two weeks, the Ole Miss Rebels will tangle with the Vanderbilt Commodores in the season opener. Until then, junior linebacker Keith Lewis will just have to imagine what it will be like to hit an opposing ball carrier. (August 15, 2013, Page 6A)
A wet Bo Wallace stood underneath the stands at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium Saturday afternoon answering questions as to why the Ole Miss offense didn’t perform very well in the first scrimmage of summer camp. After three straight good practices on the part of Wallace, the junior signal caller said there were just too many turnovers committed to have much success against a motivated defense.
With only a handful of practices remaining in the spring season, culminating in the annual Grove Bowl on April 13, the Rebels are still searching for consistency from day to day.
Spring football practice at Ole Miss resumed Monday night at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The goal, coach Hugh Freeze said, was to get the team moving again with less than two weeks left to accomplish his goals. (April 2, 2013, Page 8)
Ole Miss, and the job coach Hugh Freeze and his staff did this past year, was the buzz of the college football world Wednesday. Just 14 months after being hired to turn the Rebels around from a 2-10 team, Freeze and his staff punctuated their first full signing class with a consensus Top 10 finish.
