Ole Miss football

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)

    Ole Miss gets back to basics in first practice of open date

    Ole Miss has started dabbling in the game plan for Arkansas, but with the matchup against the Razorbacks nearly two weeks away, the Rebels have some time to refine the fundamentals that get lost over the course of a 12-game regular season. The Rebels spent most of Tuesday’s practice getting back to the basics, much to the pleasure of coach Hugh Freeze. (November 12, 2014, Page 1B)

      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. That large lead meant starting quarterback Bo Wallace’s day was done and it gave the fans a glimpse into what the future could potentially look like at the position as the Rebels went on to complete a 48-0 victory. (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)

              Dodson, Wilkins awaken OM run game

              Ole Miss’ running game had been stagnant at best. Saturday against Presbyterian College, it decided to wake up. The Rebels, 48-0 winners in the non-conference game at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, had their best performance on the ground this season with 402 yards. The best effort before Saturday was 214 yards against Louisiana-Lafayette. (November 9, 2014, Page 2B)

                Football gods need to smile on Rebels

                Publisher Tim Phillips, after suffering through a replay of the Ole Miss-Auburn game, wonders when the football gods will finally let the bounces and calls go Ole Miss’ way. Could it be this year or will it be, as usual, on down the road? (November 9, 2014, Page 4A)

                  Ole Miss fans need to stay on guard for fraud

                  Fans attending football games at the University of Mississippi are being reminded to check their tickets carefully and to keep an eye on personal property to protect themselves from fraud and theft. Keith Davis, a captain with the Lafayette County Metro Narcotics Unit, recommends that fans purchase tickets only from the university ticket office or a reputable company, not from an unknown individual or ticket scalper. (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)
