Trae Elston

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)

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)

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)

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)
