Ole Miss athletics

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)

      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)

        NOTEBOOK: Freeze gives glimpse into future at QB position

        As was expected, Ole Miss jumped out to a 35-0 lead at halftime Saturday against Presbyterian College.

          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)

                  Sisk in line to start tonight’s exhibition for Lady Rebels

                  It hasn’t taken Erika Sisk long to prove herself. The former Oxford High standout officially joined the Ole Miss’ women’s basketball team as a scholarship player back in April and has put together a solid summer and preseason camp. It’s been so good that coach Matt Insell said the 5-foot-6 sophomore is in line to be the Rebels’ starting 2-guard when they take on Christian Brothers in an exhibition today at 5 p.m. at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (November 7, 2014, Page 6A)

                    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)
