It was not a pretty win. But, it was a win. The Rebels improve to 2-0 after beating Southeast Missouri. So, what made it not pretty? Turnovers. Bo Wallace threw two interceptions. Robert Ratliff threw an interception. And, Barry Brunetti fumble twice causing turnovers. This is a major flaw the Rebels are going to have to get out of their...
Hugh Freeze used a lot of Barry Brunetti and not so much of Bo Wallace. The Rebels were up 24-0 when Brunetti basically took the reins. So why not give the backup a shot to keep things rolling?

OXFORD - Quarterbacks Bo Wallace and Barry Brunetti directed Mississippi to a 31-point outburst in a 20-minute span in the first half to highlight a win over FCS member Southeast Missouri 31-13.
Believe it or not, the now unranked Texas Longhorns still have a game to play this weekend, against the #25 Ole Miss Rebels (2-0). When most of us saw the Rebels last, they were winning a thriller against Vanderbilt. In last years meeting in Oxford, Texas won 66-31, but its a new year, and Rebels coach Hugh Freeze signed an outstanding recruiting class. Just how did the Rebels...
