BATON ROUGE, La. — There were a lot of things the Ole Miss Rebels did right in Saturday’s matchup with No. 8 LSU at Tiger Stadium. Instead of kicking field goals like they did in a one-point loss to Vanderbilt, the Rebels scored more touchdowns than any other team has all year on the vaunted LSU defense.
An Ole Miss defense that was short handed entering the nationally televised game made its fair share of big plays against an offense that had become more balanced in recent games. (more…) (November 19, 2012, Page 1B)
BATON ROUGE, La — Ole Miss was able to stay in Saturday’s 41-35 loss to No. 8 LSU because of better results in the running game. While the Rebels still only averaged 3.6 yards per carry, the running game garnered 147 yards on 41 carries and would have yielded better figures in both categories if not for three sacks of quarterback Bo Wallace, who ended up leading the team with 58 yards on 11 carries.

COLUMN: BATON ROUGE, La. — There are very few teams, if any, that have suffered more heartbreaking losses than the Ole Miss Rebels this year.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze has had a lot on his mind this week. From trying to figure how to slow down an LSU offense that has become more balanced the last two weeks to figuring out which of his injured players would even make the trip to Tiger Stadium and Baton Rouge, La., Freeze has had to balance a lot in a short amount of time. The Rebels (5-5 overall, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) are banged up heading into Saturday’s contest against No. 8 LSU (8-2, 4-2). Vanderbilt’s 27-26 victory last week at Vaught-Hemingway did more than just hurt the team’s heart, it also physically hurt the Rebels. (November 16, 2012, Page 6A)
The Ole Miss Rebels squandered a prime opportunity Saturday to put a cherry on what’s been a mostly surprising season by earning win No. 6.
Instead, the Rebels (5-5 overall, 2-4, Southeastern Conference) must now turn its attention to No. 8 LSU in the hopes of gaining bowl eligibility. (November 13, 2012, Page 6)
