Trae Elston

Rebels prep for Arkansas’ physicality on both sides

Arkansas is well-known for its ground-and-pound style on offense. The Razorbacks can play a little defense, too. Arkansas will take its turn at trying to wear down a fast yet smaller Ole Miss defense that’s given up a combined 517 rushing yards in its last two Southeastern Conference games when the teams meet Saturday at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium (2:30 p.m., CBS). (November 18, 2014, Page 6)

Ole Miss gets back to basics in first practice of open date

Ole Miss has started dabbling in the game plan for Arkansas, but with the matchup against the Razorbacks nearly two weeks away, the Rebels have some time to refine the fundamentals that get lost over the course of a 12-game regular season. The Rebels spent most of Tuesday’s practice getting back to the basics, much to the pleasure of coach Hugh Freeze. (November 12, 2014, Page 1B)

Bye week will ‘certainly help’ Rebels heal for final stretch

It was tempting, but Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze knew he couldn’t. Senior quarterback Bo Wallace entered Saturday’s game against Presbyterian College just 262 yards shy of breaking Eli Manning’s school record for total offense. Wallace accumulated 155 total yards in two quarters, but with Ole Miss holding a 35-0 lead at the break, his day was done. At this point of the season, health trumps statistics. (November 11, 2014, Page 6)

COLUMN: Easy win follows script for OM

That was easy enough. Ole Miss showed no signs of a hangover after a pair of heart-stopping losses that could’ve made it hard for anybody to blame the Rebels if they did come out lethargic against an opponent they were going to beat by however many points they wanted to anyway. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

Freeze not concerned with scoreboard Saturday

For obvious reasons, it has been a tough week for No. 12 Ole Miss to remain motivated. After five straight weeks of preparing for a Southeastern Conference opponent, the Rebels are spending this week preparing for Saturday’s game against Presbyterian (11 a.m., SEC Network) before entering their final bye week of the season. (November 6, 2014, Page 7A)

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)

VIDEO: Freeze suspends Elston, previews A&M

BLOG — Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze reflected on his team’s big win over Alabama and looked ahead to another top-15 matchup awaiting the Rebels this Saturday at Texas A&M, but the coach also spent part of his weekly press conference Monday revealing that one of Ole Miss’ starters will be disciplined for part of the game against the Aggies.
