Ole Miss football

COLUMN: Rebels party — er, play — like it’s 2012 in latest Egg Bowl win

If Ole Miss’ final win of the regular season Saturday afternoon had a familiar feeling, you may be onto something. There the state’s biggest rivals were, squaring off against each other at VaughtHemingway Stadium in the latest rendition of the Egg Bowl. Mississippi State, ranked No. 4 in all the major polls — including the one that counts, the College Football Playoff rankings — was the favorite in the Rebels’ backyard against an Ole Miss team that limped into Saturday losers in each of its last three Southeastern Conference games. (November 30, 2014, Page 1B)

    Rebel D slows down MSU rushing game

    The Ole Miss defense knew what its job was: Stop the Mississippi State tandem of quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Josh Robinson from dicing them up with their feet like they had so many other teams this season. Mission accomplished. The Rebels’ rush defense held Mississippi State to 163 total yards on the ground and just 92 between Prescott (48 yards) and Robinson (44 yards) in the Rebels’ 31-17 victory over the No. 4 Bulldogs on Saturday night. (November 30, 2014, Page 2B)

          ‘Rough’ Egg Bowl ending still fresh for Rebels a year later

          Nobody’s forgotten. With Mississippi State leading Ole Miss 17-10 in last year’s Egg Bowl in Starkville, Rebel quarterback Bo Wallace looked like he was going to answer Dak Prescott’s touchdown run in overtime with one of his own to extend the game. Wallace took the snap, pulled the ball from Jaylen Walton’s belly and sprinted up the middle inside the Bulldogs’ 5-yard line on his way to the end zone. But he never got there. (November 28, 2014, Page 6A)

            Rebels ‘behind Bo 100 percent’ heading into Egg Bowl

            If Bo Wallace’s teammates and coaches are to be believed, Saturday can’t get here fast enough for Ole Miss’ quarterback. (November 27, 2014, Page 5)

              Rebels take their turn against Prescott, Robinson

              Eleven teams have tried. Not many of them have succeeded. There’s not a whole lot of mystery to Mississippi State’s offense. The Bulldogs are going to line quarterback Dak Prescott up in the shotgun with running back Josh Robinson to his left or right, and one of them is going to run the ball to set up play-action passes off of it. (November 26, 2014, Page 6A)

                Two players critical to any kind of success Ole Miss expects to have on the football field aren’t going to let injuries keep them out against the Rebels’ biggest rival. (November 25, 2014, Page 6)

                  Ole Miss moving on, turning attention to Mississippi St.

                  Saturday’s game was a horror show of sorts for Ole Miss’ football team. The 18th-ranked Rebels found themselves down three scores before the first quarter was over at Arkansas, and things only got worse from there in what eventually turned into a 30-0 loss. It’s Ole Miss’ worst setback in the Hugh Freeze era, it was the Rebels’ third straight loss in the Southeastern Conference, and it ensured that either Mississippi State or Alabama will play either Missouri or Georgia in next month’s SEC title game. (November 24, 2014, Page 6)

                    Hogs devour sloppy Rebels

                    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The dream is over. The weekend started with Ole Miss still having a chance, however slim it was, to represent the Western Division in next month’s Southeastern Conference Championship Game for the first time ever. But Ole Miss doesn’t have to beat Mississippi State. And forget about the Iron Bowl. None of that matters anymore. Not after No. 8 Ole Miss never gave itself a chance against Arkansas. (November 23, 2014, Page 1B)
