Alabama vs Ole Miss set for 5:30 p.m. kick on ESPN | Capstone Report
Just so long as we don't get Matt Millen to call the game, I'm good.

Wallace, Freeze reunion sparks Rebel resurgence | RebelGrove.com
It's tough to think of this offense without Bo Wallace under center, and yet his commitment to Ole Miss almost didn't happen. His parents were most interested in State, and were particularly against the idea of Bo reuniting with Hugh Freeze in Oxford. This, of course, is just one interesting point among many in Chase Parham's detailed story of Wallace's unique college career.

Robert Nkemdiche's Ole Miss report card has high marks | The EotC via USA Today
Defensive end Robert Nkemdiche has more tackles for a loss than any freshman footballer in America. He doesn't yet have a sack to his credit, but he has been a force since he first stepped foot on the field, demanding double teams and routinely finding himself in great position when stopping the run.

NCAA College Football BCS Bowl Projections Week 4 | ESPN
Ole Miss vs. Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl? Can't say I'd have imagined that potential outcome a few weeks ago. I think a trip to the Chick-fil-A bowl would be a lot of fun, as would a trip to probably any of the Florida bowls. Just anything but the BBVA Compass Bowl. It's not that I've got anything against Birmingham, but the old Iron Bowl stadium is a mountain of concrete and asbestos held together by caulk and duct tape, and the production value of the event itself was a few rungs below that of a Northwest Rankin High School production of The Music Man. So, yeah, anything but Birmingham. I think we can work that one out this year.

Rebels Race Past UALR For 3-0 Win Sunday | OleMissSports.com
Don't look now (okay, go ahead and look) but the Rebel soccer team is 8-1-1 on the year, with the loss coming to Minnesota and the draw coming to Southern California. Their SEC debut went well last week, as they notched a 2-1 win over the Arkansas Razorbacks in Fayetteville. They clobbered UALR last night, and will face the Florida Gators this Friday evening in Oxford.
