No. 15 Ole Miss plots takedown of No. 11 Texas A&M

Texas A&M has its sights set on the Southeastern Conference’s West Division title — a goal that requires winning the next two games.

The first takes place Saturday night in Oxford, Miss., where the Aggies — ranked 11th in the latest CFP poll — will attempt to push their four-game winning streak to five when they face No. 15 Ole Miss.

The Aggies (7-2, 4-2) are riding strong momentum, starting with their 41-38 victory on Oct. 9 over then top-ranked Alabama (8-1, 5-1). The Crimson Tide are still the squad the Aggies are chasing for a first division crown.

Subsequent victories over Missouri, South Carolina and Auburn have put Texas A&M in a prime spot, though they do not control their fate.

Ole Miss (7-2, 3-2) and Auburn (6-3, 3-2) also sit near the top with two losses.

The Crimson Tide defeated Ole Miss on Oct. 2 and still must play Auburn in the Iron Bowl on Nov. 27.

However, with the Aggies beating Auburn 20-3 last week and holding the win over Alabama, a victory this week against the Rebels and Nov. 27 over LSU would give them a shot for the West’s top spot.

But to get there, A&M needs help. Alabama has to stumble at home against Arkansas on Nov. 20 or at arch-rival Auburn, which would award the West to the Aggies due to the head-to-head victory.

At home last weekend, the Aggies held Auburn and standout quarterback Bo Nix to three points and 226 total yards — both lows for the season.

It marked the first time the Aggies held a top-25 team without a touchdown since 2010 when they edged No. 9 Nebraska 9-6.

They logged four sacks against the Tigers — their fourth game this season with at least four sacks.

“Defense was outstanding. We did a really good job of pressuring them,” said Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher, whose defense scored the game’s only TD.

The Aggies have won nine of the past 12 contests against Ole Miss.

Rebels coach Lane Kiffin watched his team do whatever it wanted to on offense and defense in the first 30 minutes of its 27-14 victory over Liberty and talented quarterback Malik Willis last Saturday.

The Rebels produced seven sacks and two interceptions of Willis — a highly rated NFL prospect — and led 24-0 at halftime behind the strong running of Jerrion Ealy.

Kiffin’s club was outscored 14-3 in the second half and needed a late third pick of the ex-Auburn quarterback Willis to seal the win.

Ealy ran for 115 yards and two touchdowns and Matt Corral threw for 324 yards and a score, but the lackluster, TD-less second half resulted in the first meeting between the schools being closer than expected.

ESPN’s College GameDay will make its second appearance Saturday in Oxford. The first time came in 2014.

In that one, No. 11 Ole Miss – then-0-10 all-time versus No.1-ranked teams – rallied past top-ranked Alabama 23-17 behind two late Bo Wallace TD passes.

Kiffin — the Crimson Tide’s offensive coordinator that day — has his mind set on a particular guest picker this weekend.

“It would be Katy Perry, that’s a no-brainer,” Kiffin said Monday. “I just like when things have worked before … I’ve seen this script before and this movie where Katy Perry shows up and Ole Miss wins. I was on the other side of it.

“It worked before, let’s do it again.”

Ole Miss apologizes for Twitter account trolling Hugh Freeze

Officials from Ole Miss apologized for a pair of since-deleted tweets from the school’s official football Twitter account that trolled Hugh Freeze on Saturday following the Rebels’ 27-14 win over Liberty at Oxford, Miss.

The tweets focused on events that occurred during Freeze’s coaching tenure at both Ole Miss and Liberty.

The first read, “If you have complaints about this result, send it to lufootball@liberty.edu. If not, please do not slander these young men or insult their family.”

That reference stems from a tweet from Freeze in 2013 that challenged allegations of NCAA violations. The end result was Ole Miss was placed on probation in 2017 and received a two-year bowl ban and scholarship reductions.

The second tweet from the Ole Miss football account included a picture of Freeze coaching from a hospital bed two years ago while recovering from surgery following a strand of staph infection that complicated a herniated disc in his back.

“These tweets were unfortunate and not who we are in Ole Miss athletics,” Ole Miss athletic director Keith Carter told ESPN. “When I found out about them, they were immediately taken down. I have spoken with (Liberty athletic director) Ian McCaw to relay my sincere apology. We will work to do better in the future.”

Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin offered his apologies to Freeze and Liberty when informed of the tweets.

“I have no affiliation with the Ole Miss football Twitter site, even though it may sound strange, and I first learned about the tweets after my press conference when Keith Carter told me about them,” Kiffin told ESPN. “I’m completely embarrassed that anyone would put something out there like that making it look like it was a part of Ole Miss football. It was extremely disrespectful, bush league and classless, and I apologize, even though I had nothing to do with it, to Liberty and Hugh Freeze.”

No. 16 Ole Miss harasses Malik Willis, Liberty, 27-14

Jerrion Ealy rushed for 115 yards and two touchdowns and No. 16 Ole Miss’ defense hounded Liberty star quarterback Malik Willis in a 27-14 victory Saturday, spoiling the homecoming of former Rebels coach Hugh Freeze in Oxford, Miss.

The running back found paydirt twice as the Rebels led 24-0 in the first half — one in which the defense sacked Willis seven times.

Ole Miss (7-2) recorded nine sacks and three interceptions of Willis, a high first-round draft projection playing in front of 22 NFL scouts and executives.

He ended up 16-of-25 for 173 yards and rushed 21 times for 71 yards and a 3-yard touchdown.

In the first half, Jaylon Jones recorded his first career interception, and AJ Finley also added a pick of Willis.

For Ole Miss, Matt Corral went 20-of-27 for 324 yards and tossed a scoring pass to Dannis Jackson, who snared six passes for a game-high 126 yards.

John Rhys Plumlee had 110 yards on seven receptions.

An Oxford native and Rebels head coach for five seasons, Freeze resigned in 2017 amid recruiting and personal conduct scandals.

The Flames (7-3) got 101 yards and a score on seven carries from Shedro Lewis. Joshua Mack posted 98 yards on 19 rushes.

In the first meeting between the two schools, the Rebels were an unwelcoming host to their former coach immediately — scoring 17 unanswered points in the game’s first 17 minutes.

On the game’s second play from scrimmage, Ealy made it 7-0 by taking a handoff and racing untouched on a season-long 70-yard dash.

After Liberty’s Brayden Beck missed wide left on a field-goal attempt from 38 yards, Caden Costa pushed Ole Miss’ lead to 10-0 by nailing a 43-yarder.

Ealy’s four-yard run capped a four-play, 58-yard drive as the Rebels tallied for the third time in four series.

Finley’s interception set up the first half’s final score — Corral’s 40-yard pass to Jackson on a crossing route with 1:27 to go to make it 24-0.

Liberty struck on a 75-yard drive to open the second half, with Lewis racing 28 yards for his fourth TD of the season, but Costa answered with a 38-yard field goal for a 27-7 Ole Miss advantage midway through the third quarter.

Willis scored on his 3-yard TD run late in the third quarter as the Flames pulled to within two scores, 27-14.

But Finley sealed the win with his second pick of Willis in the game’s last minute and Liberty deep in Ole Miss territory.

Hugh Freeze returns to Ole Miss with Liberty hunting upset

Homecoming has already come and gone at Ole Miss, but Liberty football head coach Hugh Freeze makes his return this Saturday.

The No. 15 Rebels (6-2) entertain the Flames – led by the ex-Ole Miss coach — in a non-conference game while attempting to regain their footing after a loss against Auburn.

An Oxford, Miss., native, the third-year coach at Liberty (7-2) will return to his hometown and former school after he resigned in disgrace in July of 2017.

Ole Miss was punished after its staff committed numerous recruiting violations under Freeze, while the coach’s issues stemmed from calls he made on a school-issued cell phone to escort services and a pattern of personal misconduct.

Freeze went 39-25 in his five seasons at Ole Miss, including two big upsets of Alabama and a No. 3 ranking – its highest since 1964.

On the other side, Rebels coach Lane Kiffin is trying to regroup from Saturday’s 31-20 defeat at the hands of then-No. 18 Auburn.

Down five starters on its explosive offense, dinged up Ole Miss and quarterback Matt Corral produced its lowest point total during Kiffin’s two-year tenure.

Meanwhile, Auburn quarterback Bo Nix – Corral’s opposite number in home blue – upstaged Corral with two rushing touchdowns and one passing.

Corral, who was 21-of-37 for 289 yards and an interception, had his consecutive streak of 19 games with a passing TD come to an end. He rushed for 45 yards and a score on 10 carries.

“I didn’t feel like we had great energy,” Kiffin said Monday. “We had some very valuable offensive players not playing. We did not play well on offense, especially in critical situations.”

As it was against then-No. 1 Alabama in a 42-21 loss on Oct. 2, those key moments were on four fourth-down conversions, with the Rebels successful on just one.

All three failures occurred inside the Auburn 25 with the Rebels trailing in a close one.

“In the two games where we’ve struggled on our fourth-down conversions, those are a big deal,” Kiffin explained.

Corral was named one of 15 semifinalists Monday for the 85th Maxwell Award for the Collegiate Player of the Year, but Kiffin said his team leader did not do anything in practice because of Saturday’s first-quarter ankle injury.

“It looked really bad when it happened – like season-ending, broken,” Kiffin said. “That’s how he felt it was, but it wasn’t.”

Kiffin will also have to concern himself with another quarterback — Liberty’s Malik Willis.

In his second season leading the FBS independent Flames, the 2019 Auburn transfer has connected on 140-of-210 pass attempts for 1,986 yards with 21 TDs and six interceptions. He has tallied nine rushing TDs.

The Atlanta junior hurt his left foot against North Texas, but returned to rally his club from a 12-point deficit in a 35-26 Flames victory.

“Of course, Malik continued to do some things that make you scratch your head at,” said Freeze, who is 25-8 at Liberty. “Man, that’s pretty phenomenal. Just love, love the way he wants to compete and fight.”

Kiffin said the contest is anything but a late-season tune-up before hosting Texas A&M.

“Yeah, I’d like this to be some opponent you’ve never heard of before that didn’t have a first-round draft pick quarterback. Would be nice,” he admitted.

“So it’s like basically having another SEC game.”

Trash litters the sidelines during an SEC football game between Tennessee and Ole Miss at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn. on Saturday, Oct. 16, 2021. Tennessee fans threw debris onto the field in objection to a ruling on a play in the end of the fourth quarter.

Tennessee bans 25 fans after Ole Miss object-throwing incident

The University of Tennessee is banning 25 fans, including 16 students, from attending any athletic events the rest of the academic and athletic year for throwing things onto the field at Neyland Stadium near the conclusion of an Oct. 16 football game against Ole Miss.

The school also said it was taking steps to prevent future events such as the nearly 20-minute stoppage in play while officials worked to regain control of the stadium in Knoxville.

Tennessee athletic director Danny White, in a letter to Southeastern Conference commissioner Greg Sankey, said the changes at the venue include increased police and security staff in the student section; a requirement that students agree to the SEC and university fan codes of conduct to receive tickets; adding “enhanced” metal detectors; and making more announcements warning against misconduct.

Additionally, there will be no student guest tickets distributed for the Nov. 13 game against current No. 1 Georgia.

The SEC fined Tennessee $250,000 for the conduct of the fans who littered the field with objects. Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin, previously the Volunteers’ coach, was struck in the arm by a golf ball.

Ole Miss won 31-26.

Ole Miss retires Eli Manning’s No. 10

Ole Miss retired Eli Manning’s No. 10 in a halftime ceremony during Saturday’s 31-17 home victory against LSU.

Manning set or tied 47 single-game, season and career school records from 2000-03 at Ole Miss. He still holds career marks of 10,119 passing yards and 81 touchdowns.

Manning was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2004 NFL Draft and went on to a 16-year NFL career in which he won two Super Bowls with the New York Giants. Manning’s No. 10 was retired by the Giants last month.

Manning still fondly looks back at his time on the Oxford campus. And he also easily recalls his favorite victory.

“So many of them through the friendships, mentors and coaches that I still talk to,” Manning told CBS of the memories. “But beating Alabama here my sophomore year (in 2001), the first time in 12 years we had beaten Alabama, on a two-minute drive to beat them was a special one.”

Each end zone at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium had MANNING painted on the turf.

Manning is the third Ole Miss player to have his number retired, joining his famous father Archie (18) and Chucky Mullins (38).

Archie Manning played at Ole Miss from 1968-70 and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1989.

Mullins was left paralyzed by an injury suffered in a game against Vanderbilt on Oct. 28, 1989. He died less than two years later.

Highly regarded prospect Arch Manning was in attendance. The five-star quarterback of the 2023 class is Eli Manning’s nephew and Ole Miss is one of the schools he is considering.

Matt Corral paces No. 12 Ole Miss past LSU

Heisman Trophy hopeful Matt Corral shook off a slow start by scoring one of his team’s three rushing touchdowns and throwing for another as No. 12 Ole Miss posted a 31-17 victory over SEC West foe LSU on Saturday in Oxford, Miss.

Questionable to play after a gutsy, 30-carry effort at Tennessee in a 31-26 win last week, Corral led the Rebels (6-1, 3-1 SEC) to three straight scores in the first half and another early in the second.

In winning their third straight contest, the Rebels broke a five-game losing streak versus LSU — all against lame duck head coach Ed Orgeron.

The junior passer finished 18 of 23 for 185 yards without an interception. His TD pass to tight end Casey Kelly extended Corral’s streak of consecutive games with at least one to 19 — three shy of Chad Kelly’s school record.

Corral rushed for 24 yards and a score and caught a 19-yard pass from wideout Dontario Drummond.

Snoop Conner produced a game-high 117 yards on 14 carries, and Jerrion Ealy and Henry Parrish Jr. notched touchdowns.

LSU’s offense — which rushed for 321 yards in a 49-42 home upset of then-No. 20 Florida last week — was held to 77 on 35 carries.

Max Johnson went 13-of-21 passing for 146 yards with an interception, and Tyrion Davis-Price rushed for a TD for the Tigers (4-4, 2-3).

Garrett Nussmeier relieved Johnson and was 7-of-12 passing for 103 yards and a touchdown.

In the first quarter, Johnson took the Tigers 90 yards on nine plays for a 7-0 lead, with Davis-Price — who rushed for a school-record 287 yards against the Gators — capping it with a 1-yard plunge.

Following Tysheem Johnson’s first interception this season, inside the Ole Miss 1, the Rebels went 74 yards over 13 plays, culminating with Cade Costa splitting the uprights from 43 yards with 10:44 left in the second quarter.

Corral found Kelly from 2 yards out for the Rebels’ first lead — diving into the red end zone with MANNING painted on it, honoring former star quarterback Eli Manning.

Corral’s 3-yard TD run pushed the lead to 17-7 late in the half as Ole Miss scored on its last three possessions after its first two drives ended quickly in punts.

Parrish and Ealy both rushed for scores in the third — from 5 yards and 36, respectively — as the Rebels led 31-7.

Cade York’s 47-yard field goal and Nussmeier’s 9-yard strike to Malik Nabers rounded out the scoring.

Tennessee officials apologize after chaos vs. Ole Miss

Tennessee chancellor Donde Plowman said she was “sickened” by the conduct of home fans Saturday night in the Volunteers’ loss to Mississippi — behavior that caused a stoppage of nearly 20 minutes as fans threw water bottles and other objects onto the field in the closing minute.

“I am astonished and sickened by the behavior of some Vol fans at the end of tonight’s game,” she posted to social media after the game. “Good sportsmanship must be part of who we are as Volunteers. Behavior that puts student-athletes, visitors and other fans at risk is not something we will tolerate. I will be calling (Mississippi) Chancellor (Glenn) Boyce in the morning to offer my personal apology on behalf of the University of Tennessee and discuss what we can do to make this right. Neyland Stadium has always been a place for families, and we’ll keep it that way.”

With 54 seconds left, after officials ruled Tennessee’s attempt to convert a fourth-and-24 play failed by about a yard, fans began throwing things onto the turf. Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin, the former Volunteers coach, was hit by a golf ball in the arm. His players put on their helmets for safety, the Tennessee cheerleaders, dance squad and marching band filed out, and the student section was cleared.

Tennessee got the ball back and had a chance to score in the waning seconds, but backup quarterback Joe Milton, with the ball at the Ole Miss 21, couldn’t find an open receiver and ran, falling 8 yards short of a score as time expired. Ole Miss won 31-26.

Tennessee athletic director Danny White also said he apologized to his counterpart at Mississippi.

“Our Tennessee fanbase had much to be proud of through 59 minutes of football Saturday night — they created one of the best live sporting event atmospheres I’ve ever experienced — but what transpired in the game’s final minute was unacceptable.

“While I’m incredibly proud of our team’s effort on the field, I’m disappointed that their relentless performance was overshadowed in the game’s closing moments by the actions of several fans whose actions did not represent the Volunteer Spirit or the true character of our university.

“On behalf of the University of Tennessee, I’d like to apologize to the Ole Miss football program and congratulate their student-athletes on a hard fought win. I spoke with Keith Carter after the game and expressed the same sentiment to him.”

No. 13 Ole Miss survives, earns wild win over Vols

Matt Corral accounted for 426 total yards Saturday night as No. 13 Mississippi held off Tennessee for a wild 31-26 win in Knoxville, Tenn.

Corral completed 21 of 38 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns with his first interception of the year. He also rushed for 195 yards on 30 carries as the Rebels (5-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) outgained the Volunteers (4-3, 2-2) 510-467.

Tennessee’s last chance to win the game ended when backup quarterback Joe Milton ran out of bounds at the Ole Miss 8-yard line after a 13-yard gain as time expired. Milton replaced injured starter Hendon Hooker, who hit 17 of 26 passes for 233 yards while running for 108 yards and accounting for two scores.

The game was delayed for 20 minutes with 54 seconds left in the game after Hooker’s 23-yard pass to Jacob Warren on fourth-and-24 was spotted nearly a yard shy of a first down.

After replay upheld the spotting of the ball, the sellout crowd of 102,455 at Neyland Stadium forced the delay by throwing all kinds of debris on the field. Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin was nearly struck by a golf ball and a police officer was drilled with a water bottle.

Ole Miss initiated scoring just over five minutes into the game when Snoop Conner scored the first of his two touchdowns on a 1-yard run. But Tennessee responded with nine points in 44 seconds as Omari Thomas sacked Corral in the end zone for a safety, followed by Hooker’s 16-yard scoring strike to Cedric Tillman.

The Rebels answered with 17 straight points. Caden Costa’s 30-yard field goal with 44 seconds left in the first quarter put them ahead for good. Corral hit Dannis Jackson with a 33-yard touchdown pass and Conner added a second 1-yard scoring run for a 24-9 advantage.

Chase McGrath’s 39-yard field goal on the half’s final play drew the Volunteers within 24-12 and they pulled within five points on Jabari Small’s 1-yard touchdown run just over two minutes into the third quarter.

No. 13 Ole Miss, Tennessee expect high-scoring affair

If you like your college football fast-paced and high-scoring, the Saturday night Southeastern Conference matchup between Tennessee and No. 13 Ole Miss in Knoxville, Tenn., might be for you.

The Rebels (4-1, 1-1 SEC) are putting up 46.2 points per game, which ranks fourth in FBS, while the Volunteers’ average of 41.5 points is seventh. No team in the Power 5 squeeze off more plays per minute than these two as Ole Miss clicks off 2.89 offensive plays per minute with Tennessee (4-2, 2-1) right behind at 2.87.

Quantity translates into quality in both cases. The Rebels score 1.75 points per minute, good for second in the FBS, and the Volunteers’ 1.58 is third. Or as Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin famously said before his team’s 42-21 loss at Alabama on Oct. 2, get out your popcorn.

“You can see offensively that there’s a rhyme and a reason behind everything they’re doing,” first-year Tennessee coach Josh Heupel said. “They’re going to put defenses in a conflict. They do a great job of being balanced and creating big plays, too.”

Shockingly, so have the Volunteers. In a 180-degree turn from last year’s 3-7 disaster, when they scored only 215 points (21.5 per game), they have already surpassed that meager output. Heupel’s new approach is one reason and the play of Virginia Tech transfer Hendon Hooker is another.

Hooker was QB2 behind Michigan transfer Joe Milton III when the season started on Sept. 2. Milton was injured in a Sept. 11 loss to Pittsburgh, and it appears he’s been Wally Pipped. No quarterback in the SEC has been more efficient than Hooker.

In a 45-20 blowout of South Carolina last week, Hooker hit on 17 of 23 passes for 225 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. He is completing 69.6 percent of his passes with a 13-1 touchdown-interception ratio.

“He’s become better, more vocal, more ownership on the football field and in the locker (room) with our team as well,” Heupel said of Hooker.

Hooker likely will have to be at his best to match Rebels quarterback Matt Corral. All Corral did last week in a wild 52-51 win over Arkansas was throw for 287 yards and two touchdowns while running for 94 yards and two more scores.

Corral has completed 69.2 percent of his passes for 1,497 yards (299.4 yards per game) with 12 scores and no interceptions this season. He may have to continue to be that good to make up for a defense that has sprung leaks when faced with SEC competition.

Alabama ran over the top of Ole Miss two weeks ago, and the Razorbacks went from getting blanked at Georgia to putting more than half a hundred. The only saving grace for the Rebels was that they stopped Arkansas’ potential game-winning two-point conversion with no time on the clock.

“We stopped them on one play in the second half, so I guess that’s a good thing,” said Kiffin, who was Tennessee’s head coach in 2009.

Ole Miss permitted a whopping 676 yards (326 passing, 350 rushing) and 39 first downs to the Razorbacks, but Kiffin doesn’t plan to switch from the 3-2-6 scheme implemented before the season.

“We know it works, but if we don’t tackle, it doesn’t matter where the people are,” he said.

This will be the teams’ first meeting since 2014, when the Rebels routed Tennessee 34-3 in a game later vacated due to NCAA ruling. The Volunteers lead the series 44-19-1, with the original record 44-20-1 before the 2014 game was deleted.
