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: Wunderlich to handle kicking duties at A&M

The kicking department has been one of instability for No. 3 Ole Miss during the first five games of the season. This week against No. 14 Texas A&M, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze will rely on true freshman Gary Wunderlich to bring some stability to special teams inside the hostile environment of Kyle Field Saturday night as he’ll kick field goals and extra points for the Rebels. (October 9, 2014, Page 7A)

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)

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)

Rebels use late surge to down Broncos

ATLANTA- As ugly as the start was for Ole Miss, the finish was just as appealing. The 18th-ranked Rebels sputtered on offense for most of the night, leaning heavily on the help of an opportunistic defense before finding a rhythm late to start the season with a 35-13 win over Boise State on Thursday in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in the Georgia Dome. (August 29, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebels’ RB depth creates plenty of competition
