Ole Miss’ drive to make a bowl game after its subpar start to the year continues Saturday with a road trip to Knoxville, Tenn., to play the unranked Tennessee Volunteers.
The Rebels (4-5 overall, 1-4 in the Southeastern Conference) started November strong with a much needed 43-21 win over Louisiana-Lafayette last Saturday and the players are looking to build on that success against a Tennessee team that is just 3-6 and 0-5 in the league. (November 12, 2010, Page 6A)

Even on a night when Ole Miss All-American Drew Pomeranz didn’t have his A-game, the No. 11 Ole Miss Rebels were still able to find a way to win, defeating the Tennessee Volunteers 7-3 Friday at Oxford-University Stadium. (more…) (April 2, 2010)
The No. 11 Ole Miss Rebels baseball team (20-6 overall, 4-2 SEC) will look to take their third-straight SEC series this weekend when they host Tennessee (13-13, 0-6) for a three-game series beginning today at 6:30 p.m. (April 2, 2010, Page 6A)
