2013: 8-5 (3-5 SEC); won Music City Bowl over Georgia Tech
Ole Miss was a quality football team in 2013; in another conference, they probably contend for a conference title. They opened the season 3-0 after a win at Texas, earning them the #21 national ranking, but then fell flat losing at #1 Alabama and Auburn. Then then returned home and narrowly lost to #9 Texas A&M before upsetting #6 LSU. Three top ten games in four weeks? Talk about a tough schedule. They also lost to #8 Missouri later in the season. The pro-style offense was led by QB Bo Wallace (3,346 yards, 18 touchdowns) and WR Donte Moncrief (938 yards, 6 touchdowns). Moncrief is an Indianapolis Colt now, but Wallace will be back. The running game had three guys rush for more than 490 yards so there’s definitely not a #1 here, which bodes well for balance. Ole Miss has a strong defense as well, but comparatively other SEC teams are still stronger. They’ve got a pretty soft first four games of the season but do have big home games against Alabama and Auburn later in the season. Make sure to be on upset alert for those two.
The Ole Miss Rebels operate in the SEC West under head coach Hugh Freeze at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, MS, which holds just over 60,000 fans. Ole Miss has three national titles, six conference titles, and 34 bowl appearances. They have rivalries with Mississippi State and LSU. They lead 61-42-6 over MSU but trail 40-59-4 to LSU. The Rebels have had many famous NFL players throughout the years; however, currently the most notable include Giants quarterback Eli Manning, Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace, and 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis.
