Multiple sources are reporting that Ole Miss has vacated 33 wins over a six-year period, spanning from 2010-2016, as the final part of the university’s final punishment from the NCAA.
Of the 33 vacated victories, six came under Houston Nutt in 2010 and 2011, with the remaining 27 with Hugh Freeze as the head coach from 2012-2016. Freeze’s record is significantly affected, dropping from 39-25 to 12-25.
Although the majority of vacated wins came under Freeze, Ole Miss did not vacate the 2015 Sugar Bowl victory or the 2013 Music City Bowl victory.
Chase Parham of RebelGrove.com was the first to break the news.
“Ole Miss, because of ineligible player participation, vacates all wins from 2010 (four wins), 2011 (two), 2012 (seven) and 2016 (five). All wins other than the Music City Bowl from 2013 (seven wins) must be vacated, as well as all wins from 2014 except for the Presbyterian game (eight wins).
‘It’s the last part of this process,’ Ole Miss athletics director Ross Bjork said. ‘In a way it’s just a piece of paper because you saw those games.'”
