Keep an eye on 29   Ole Miss is going to have its hands full Saturday afternoon defending No. 29 Jarvis Jones, a junior linebacker. Jones, one of the top linebackers in the country, has been wreaking havoc on opposing offenses all season long. The Bulldogs move Jones around quite a bit and have enough playmakers around him to make teams pay for overcompensating...

  Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze readily admits that it’s “very tempting” to shift his offense into overdrive and run a higher percentage of up-tempo plays. However, a lack of depth on both sides of the football makes that tough to do, as the Rebels are down to 64 healthy scholarship players.    “That’s my nature, it is what...

  The annual Fall World Series this past week didn’t go three games, but it still could have gone either way as both games went into extra innings.   “Best pizza bowl ever,” head coach Mike Bianco said. “Best pizza bowl in 13 years.”   The Red team, managed by senior right-hander Brett Huber, won game one thanks to a walk-off...

  The Ole Miss Rebels defeated the Arkansas Razorbacks 30-27 on Saturday on the foot of senior Bryson Rose’s 31-yard field goal as time expired. While Rose was carried off the field in triumph, the Rebels’ second-straight Southeastern Conference victory was much more than a one-man job.   “Our character trait this week in our program was courage,”...

Fall is slowly but surely creeping in. Football has started. Not long from now the leaves will be changing colors and girls will be breaking out their sweaters and boots. Cooler breezes will begin to stir, and with this weather change comes a change in what fruits and vegetables are in season. There’s a whole host of reasons why you should try to eat in season. High...

  Third-down defense   The Rebels’ defense has consistently improved throughout the season, but one part of the game where they still struggle is third-down defense. On the year, Ole Miss ranks 91st in the country in opponent third-down conversion percentage, allowing opponents to convert almost 44 percent of third downs.   In losses to Texas, Alabama...

  A quarterback is looked at to command the offense and establish himself as a leader both in the huddle and in the locker room. Sophomore Bo Wallace has done just that in his first season at Ole Miss. The Pulaski, Tenn., native has been welcomed with open arms to the football team and has taken over as the Rebel’s leader under center.   “I think...

1. Will one of the quarterbacks solidify himself as the starter for the rest of the season? Bennett Hipp (@bennetthipp): I think if Bo Wallace starts and plays well, he can take a step toward solidifying himself. I’m not sure one game is enough to make it a done deal, as he’ll have to limit interceptions and turnovers going forward no matter what. Matt Sigler (@SigNewton_2):...
