Rebels’ Morris to miss bowl game

Aaron Morris won’t play in Ole Miss’ bowl game. The Rebels’ left guard has a torn ACL in his left knee, head coach Hugh Freeze said. It’s the same injury that cost Morris, a redshirt junior, all but one game last season. Morris has started 11 games this year. (December 16, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Injured Wallace leads OM to win

It was the Egg Bowl. Bo Wallace was not going to miss his final game inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Bum ankle or not. The senior quarterback gutted out a solid performance, leading No. 18 Ole Miss to a 31-17 victory over No. 4 Mississippi State onSaturday. (November 30, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

Ole Miss taking advantage of extra time in preparation for Razorbacks

It may be the middle of No. 10 Ole Miss’ second bye week, but that is not stopping the Rebels from getting a jumpstart on their preparation for their Nov. 22 game against Arkansas. (November 13, 2014, Page 6A)

Rebels overwhelm Presbyterian College in rout

No. 12 Ole Miss jumped on its lone Football Championship Subdivision opponent of the season, got its backups a ton of snaps and overwhelmed Presbyterian College for a 48-0 win in front of 60,546 fans clad mostly in red and blue. Ole Miss (8-2 overall) had a handful of starters sitting with injuries, but it didn’t stop the Rebels from turning in gobs of big plays against the overmatched Blue Hose (5-5) and ending a two-game losing streak heading into its second bye week of the season. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

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)

Ole Miss drops to No. 11 in latest CFB playoff rankings

After Saturday’s loss to Auburn, its second of the season, Ole Miss’ playoff chances are bleak.  The Rebels (7-2, 4-2 SEC) dropped from No. 4 to No. 11 in the second round of College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday night and were the first two-loss team on the board. They were even ranked above one-loss teams Baylor (12), Nebraska (13) and Ohio State (14). (November 5, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebels want to take care of business, then rest

Essentially No. 12 Ole Miss has two bye weeks with Presbyterian coming to town for an 11 a.m. kickoff Saturday and its final bye week of the season next weekend. It couldn’t come at a better time after coming out of a stretch of five Southeastern Conference games head coach Hugh Freeze called “murderer’s row.” (November 4, 2014, Page 6)

Ole Miss prepares for life without Treadwell

On Oct. 24, Ole Miss was a top-5 team and very much in control of its destiny regarding the SEC Championship and even the national title conversation.  Two heartbreaking losses to LSU and Auburn later, and the 12th-ranked Rebels are now trying to right the ship in a season that went off course in a matter of eight days. (November 3, 2014, Page 6)

Treadwell’s career night ends with fumble, injury

Laquon Treadwell got 19 yards. He needed 20. Ole Miss’ sophomore wideout caught his final pass of the night, weaved his way through Auburn’s defense and fought off defenders on his way toward the end zone. But Kris Frost caught up to jar the ball loose from behind, and Auburn’s Cassanova McKinzy recovered in the end zone with 1 minute, 30 seconds left. (November 2, 2014, Page 1B)

Ole Miss defense clamps down on Vols in rout

Ole Miss’ offense took a while to get going Saturday night. Not that it mattered a whole lot. The third-ranked Rebels’ defense turned in another dominant performance, keeping Ole Miss close until the offense found its footing and suffocating Tennessee from start to finish in a 34-3 victory in front of 62,081 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (October 19, 2014, Page 1B)
