Ole Miss eager to avenge last loss at LSU

Ole Miss is in the midst of one of the best seasons in school history, enjoying its first 7-0 start since 1962 and a No. 3 national ranking. A win over LSU in Tiger Stadium would make things even sweeter. The Rebels (7-0, 4-0 SEC) will travel to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Saturday for a night game at Death Valley. Ole Miss hasn’t beaten the 24th-ranked Tigers (6-2, 2-2) on their own turf since 2008, and the latest of those setbacks was a bittersweet pill to swallow. (October 24, 2014, Page 6A)

Rebels expect test from LSU’s ground game

Ole Miss has beaten Alabama and Tennessee at home and traveled to College Station, Texas, to handle the Aggies of Texas A&M in the past three weeks. The road ahead does not get any easier this Saturday as the No. 3 Rebels venture to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for a night game in Death Valley against No. 24 LSU. (October 21, 2014, Page 6A)

VIDEO: Rebels preview LSU

BLOG — Ole Miss will take its unbeaten record on the road for a top-25 matchup with LSU on Saturday night (6:15 p.m., ESPN) at Tiger Stadium. The Rebels are expecting it to be an old-school matchup. (more…) (October 20, 2014)

COLUMN: Best D in the land? Rebels making their case

At a certain point, you had to feel sorry for Tennessee. The Volunteers’ offense hasn’t exactly been a well-oiled machine this season, but it hit a whole new level of ineptitude against Ole Miss on Saturday night at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (October 19, 2014, Page 1B)

Ole Miss OK with slowing down offensive pace in second half of season

As each week passes and the wins keep coming, the pressure to not falter grows stronger. No. 3 Ole Miss is solidly in the college football playoff picture and controls its own destiny, which even means pulling back on its high-paced offense to make sure mistakes do not happen.  The Rebels ran 54 plays against Texas A&M, an all-time low under head coach Hugh Freeze, and it’s something fans should get used to for the foreseeable future. (October 16, 2014, Page 6A)

Rebels looking to avenge close calls against Texas A&M

Ole Miss got a win last week that had eluded the Rebels for quite some time. They’ll try to do the same thing this week. (October 10, 2014, Page 6A)

Rebels brace for first true road test at A&M

Ole Miss has played two games outside of Oxford, but neither of them have been in an opponent’s home stadium. That will change this week. (October 8, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels’ Elston suspended a half against A&M

No. 3 Ole Miss is about to face the most potent passing attack it’s seen all season, and the Rebels will have to defend it without one of its starters in the secondary early on. Rebel coach Hugh Freeze has suspended junior safety Trae Elston for the first half of this Saturday’s game against No. 14 Texas A&M (8 p.m., ESPN) after Elston attempted to kick Alabama running back Kenyan Drake during the second quarter of last week’s 23-17 win over the Crimson Tide (October 7, 2014, Page 6)

Rebels aim to win this time against Alabama

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze doesn’t know if his team will put up more points than Alabama on Saturday evening at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. But for the first time in his tenure, there’s a belief that it could actually happen. (September 30, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Ole Miss being real with Tide’s run defense

Ole Miss’ running game has shown some signs of life recently. The Rebels broke 200 yards on the ground for the first time three weeks ago against Louisiana-Lafayette and followed that up with 178 yards against Memphis last Saturday. Ole Miss has increased its average run to 4 yards after mustering a measly 2.9 through the first two games, a byproduct of some explosive scampers. The Rebels have ripped off runs of 71, 53, 23 and 22 yards in their last two outings. (September 30, 2014, Page 6)
