        NOTEBOOK: Rebels avoid letdown game against Aggies

No. 3 Ole Miss was coming off a 23-17 win over then-No. 3 Alabama at home and watched the goalposts come down inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Only one problem: Nobody told Ole Miss. (October 12, 2014, Page 1B)

                    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)
