Alford leaves Ole Miss football team for baseball

No. 11 Ole Miss is preparing for one of its biggest games in program history against third-ranked Alabama, but the Rebels will be down one player as sophomore defensive back Anthony Alford left the program Tuesday. (October 1, 2014, Page 1B)

Ole Miss puts Memphis away late, moves to 4-0

Memphis put a landmine in front of Ole Miss’ path to a potential Top-10 showdown with Alabama next weekend. Ole Miss tiptoed around it. The 10th-ranked Rebels committed four turnovers and found themselves clinging to a 7-point lead early in the fourth quarter before finding the end zone twice in the final minutes to pull away for a 24-3 victory Saturday night in front of a crowd of 61,291 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 28, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: OM defense picks up offense with performance

With No. 10 ranked Ole Miss’ offense sputtering for much of the game against Memphis, it was up to the Rebel defense to pick up the slack. They accomplished that and more in the 24-3 victory Saturday night over the upset-minded Tigers. (September 28, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebels eager for ‘competition’ against Boise St.

Ole Miss has had enough of all this practicing. It’s time to play. Technically the 18th-ranked Rebels still have two more days of preparation before begining their season with a matchup against Boise State on Thursday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, but the patience is wearing thin. (August 26, 2014, Page 8)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels’ Liggins getting work exclusively as tight end

Any packages that had Jeremy Liggins operating as the quarterback have been scratched from Ole Miss’ playbook. Liggins moved from quarterback to tight end at the start of fall camp, but the former Lafayette High standout was still moonlighting as a Wildcat quarterback at times. That’s no longer the case as the 6-foot-3, 296-pound Liggins continues to learn the nuances of his new position. (August 25, 2014, Page 7)

Ole Miss WR Epps arrested over weekend in Oxford

Ole Miss freshman receiver Sammie Epps was arrested by the Oxford Police Department over the weekend.  Epps, a Greenwood native, was booked into the Lafayette County Detention Center at 11 p.m. Friday on charges of driving without a license and marijuana possession, according to jail records.

Rebels’ backup QB battle rages on

A quarterback battle is still brewing at Ole Miss, though it has nothing to do with the starter. Bo Wallace will operate the controls of the Rebels’ offense for the third straight season. Who would be first off the bench to spare the senior in a blowout or should he get injured is still a mystery. Redshirt freshmen Ryan Buchanan and DeVante Kincade continue to duke it out for the backup job. With less than two weeks before the season opener Aug. 28 against Boise State in Atlanta, the race is far from being settled. (August 18, 2014, Page 6)
