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 exeperiencing ‘new normal’ of consistent winning

It wasn’t too long ago that embarrassments on the football field were the norm for Ole Miss. Saturday’s win over then-No. 3 Alabama is part of a new culture. (October 6, 2014, Page 6)

Ole Miss rallies to down No. 3 Alabama

College football’s first four-team playoff is still three months away, but Ole Miss is officially in the conversation. The Rebels put themselves there by exorcising some demons. The 11th-ranked Rebels stayed patient against Alabama’s always stout defense and broke through late, scoring three second-half touchdowns to erase a double-digit deficit and upset the third-ranked Crimson Tide with a 23-17 victory in front of a sellout crowd of 61,826 at Vaught Hemingway Stadium on Saturday. (October 5, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Defense answered the bell against Alabama

There were times the Ole Miss defense bent, but it didn’t break in the 11th-ranked Rebels’ 23-17 upset victory over No. 3 Alabama Saturday inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The Crimson Tide offense did rack up 396 total yards of offense but was held to just 10 points. (October 5, 2014, Page 1B)

COLUMN: Welcome to national relevancy, Ole Miss

When Alabama brought its No. 2 ranking to Oxford in 2011, Ole Miss cornerback Senquez Golson, then a freshman, was known for his play — or rather, one play — for all the wrong reasons. (October 5, 2014, Page 1B)

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)

Wallace, Rebels rout UL-Lafayette, 56-15

It’s getting difficult not to think about what might be when Alabama visits Oxford in three weeks.  The second-ranks Tide has to get past Florida next weekend at home, but Alabama and No. 14 Ole Miss seem destined for a matchup of SEC unbeatens on Oct. 4, especially after the Rebels’ 56-15 dismantling of Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday afternoon in front of 60,937 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 14, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebel secondary keeps finding the ball

The Ole Miss defense picked up right where it left off in Nashville last week. The Rebels came into Saturday’s game against Louisiana-Lafayette with a Southeastern Conference-leading five interceptions, also good for enough to be tied second nationally. By the end of the  night they added three more to that total. (September 14, 2014, Page 2B)

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)
