Ratings, Exposure Huge for Ole Miss-Alabama

Conner_091915_JM.JPGOle Miss' historic win over Alabama last Saturday was not only popular with members of Rebel Nation, it was among the most-watched college football games of the year.

The Rebels' thrilling 43-37 victory over the Tide at Bryant-Denny Stadium was the highest-rated game of the week across all television networks, earning a 4.6 overnight rating. The rating is up 254 percent to the 2014 comparable television window and is the third-highest overnight rating of the 2015 season across ESPN.

The instant classic was WatchESPN's most-streamed college football game of the week and the product's second-most streamed regular season college football game ever. It achieved an average minute audience of 128,000 users, 615,000 unique viewers and 35,700,000 live minutes viewed. Additionally, the stream was up 485 percent in average minute audience, 328 percent in unique viewers and 666 percent in live minutes viewed compared to last season's similar window (USC at Boston College).

It's not the first time ESPN has benefitted from a big-time showdown between Ole Miss and 'Bama. College GameDay appeared in The Grove for last year matchup, and it was the most-watched episode of the 2014 season for the popular pre-game show.

Ole Miss is the talk of college football this week. Numerous outlets have pegged Hugh Freeze's squad as a playoff frontrunner, and the Rebels were the headline story on nearly every sports website over the weekend.

The Rebels look to improve to 4-0 overall and 2-0 in SEC play when Vanderbilt visits Vaught-Hemingway Stadium this Saturday. Kickoff is 6 p.m. CT, televised by ESPNU.


Rebels Pass First Test in Search of Playoff Berth

The road to the College Football Playoff includes many tests along the way. The Ole Miss Rebels (3-0, 1-0 SEC) just passed their first, proving that they are a legitimate contender after knocking off the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide for a second straight year with a 43-37 triumph.
Quarterback Chad Kelly showed that the production of the offense from the first two games wasn't a fluke. He connected on 18 of 33 passes for 341 yards and three touchdowns in a hostile road environment, leading the Rebels' tempo offense to 43 points, their most ever in Tuscaloosa.
The offense would take advantage of turnovers and turn them into points, scoring all 17 of their first-half points off turnovers. The Crimson Tide fumbled the opening kickoff, resulting in a field goal by Gary Wunderlich. The defense later picked off Alabama quarterback Cooper Bateman and recovered another fumble on a kickoff to score 14 points in the second quarter.
The whole game could be summed up in one play made in the third quarter by Kelly. He would tip a bad snap high in the air to himself, lob up a pass up for grabs in the area of wide receiver Laquon Treadwell as he narrowly avoided a sack, had the ball tipped off an Alabama player's helmet and land in the hands of wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo, who scampered 66 yards to the end zone to extend the Rebels' lead to 14.
Two more field goals from Wunderlich, from 34 and 45 yards out, extended the lead to 20 with 3:57 remaining in the third quarter. Wunderlich would finish the night a perfect 3-for-3 on field goals and 4-for-4 on extra points.
Alabama scored 20 points in the fourth quarter, including a touchdown that they would score after recovering an onside kick following a Derrick Henry touchdown run. That would be negated by an excellent closing effort by the Rebels.
What appeared to be a penalty turned into a 73-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Cody Core. Kelly would also lob a beautiful fade to Treadwell, who snatched the ball from the Alabama defender. Those 14 fourth-quarter points and a dehydrated Landshark defense would be enough to hang in to close out the game. 
"We were definitely exhausted," said Rebel head coach Hugh Freeze. "It was a four-quarter battle. We were gassed. Defensively, we were struggling to stop them. Offensively, I was scared to open it up to much, but we made enough plays in a very difficult environment against a really good football team.
"It was absolutely electric in here. And you could tell that they wanted us back from last year. It was a pretty wild atmosphere."
Similar to last year, Ole Miss was able to defeat the Crimson Tide despite being out-gained in total yards. The Crimson Tide passed for 288 yards and rushed for 215. The Rebels passed for 341 yards, but were held to only 92 yards rushing. This wouldn't matter, as timely plays from Ole Miss would guide the team to victory.
"The only thing I told them before the game was that you don't have to be anything that you are not; you are good enough to win," noted Freeze. "We don't need to be anything special, just be who you are and you'll be good enough to win."

The Rebels look to keep up their reputation as a final four candidate next week as they continue SEC play at home against the Vanderbilt Commodores (1-2, 0-1 SEC).

Kelly Makes Statement in Big Rebel Win

There is no doubt who the starting quarterback is anymore. Chad Kelly has solidified the starting role after his effort today. The gunslinger tossed four touchdowns for 346 yards and added a touchdown on the ground in a 73-21 victory.

"Chad Kelly is the starter," said head coach Hugh Freeze. "I said yesterday, to the ESPN crew, that the job is his to lose. Chad has certainly done nothing to put himself out of the job, so he is the starter. I expect that to continue."

Kelly was able to make big plays all game because of great pass protection and his physical receivers, who bodied the Bulldog secondary all night. Quincy Adeboyejo led the Rebel receiving core with five receptions for 120 yards and three touchdowns. Cody Core hauled in six catches for 96 yards and a touchdown. Laquon Treadwell proved he is past his injury, as he snagged five balls for 73 yards.

Kelly started off the game hot. He was responsible for five touchdowns in the first half, the most in the SEC since Johnny Manziel did it in 2012. Kelly connected on 18 of 22 passes for 305 yards and four scores in the half, while also running for 24 yards and another TD.

The Rebels scored four touchdowns of 20 yards or longer, including two pick-sixes. Kelly flashed his arm strength, connecting with Adeboyejo late in the first quarter for a 50-yard touchdown pass, and again early in the second quarter from 44 yards out. Free safety Trae Elston picked off the Fresno State signal caller and returned it 38 yards for a touchdown halfway through the third quarter. Fellow defensive back Chief Brown had the final points of the game on a 22-yard interception return. The Rebels now have three pick-sixes in two games.

DeVante Kincade will still be involved in the offense. His ability to run will be a threat to opposing defenses. He led the team in rushing with 48 yards, averaging 12 yards a carry.

It seems as though Freeze might look to keep Robert Nkemdiche in a few offensive packages as well. The defensive tackle lined up at fullback again this week, this time powering his way into the end zone from 1 yard out. That would be the second career touchdown for Nkemdiche.

The Landshark defense flew to the ball all game, making big play after big play. To go with the three picks, the defense chalked up 10 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and a sack.

Ole Miss looks to polish up this week as they hold a 2-0 record heading into SEC play. They will look to knock off Alabama (2-0) on the road at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Alabama rolled through Wisconsin in a neutral-site season opener 35-17 and defeated Middle Tennessee 37-10 in week two.

Big Plays Highlight Season-Opening Win

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Offense, defense and special teams. Ole Miss dominated all three aspects of the game as the 15th-ranked Rebels routed UT Martin 76-3 in the season opener. The 60,186 fans, mostly dressed in white, anticipated an exciting start to the 2015 season.

The offense exploded, racking up 662 total yards. In his Rebel debut, starting QB Chad Kelly threw for 211 yards and two touchdowns, and also ran one in for the Rebels. Quarterbacks Ryan Buchanan and DeVante Kincade, who have been in competition for the starting job this offseason, also had big games. Buchanan completed 4 of 6 passes for two touchdowns. Kincade also hit 6 of his 7 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown. Head coach Hugh Freeze was pleased with the effort of his starting quarterback.

"I thought Chad Kelly's performance was really solid," Freeze said. "Kelly did miss a touchdown throw, and probably could have thrown one a little bit better on the fade to Laquon Treadwell early in the game, but outside of that I think he had a solid day. We will get back to watching film, but I felt pretty good about him out there."

The quarterbacks hit 11 different receivers today. One of those receivers was defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, who caught a 31-yard touchdown on a play-action pass coming out of the backfield. The 6-4, 296-pounder lined up at fullback, sneaked into the flat, caught a ball from Buchanan, and tiptoed down the sideline for his first touchdown of his career. Laquon Treadwell caught four balls for 44 yards in his debut since his injury.

"Treadwell looked explosive, but it was an average performance," Freeze noted.  "It was really good seeing Laquon get tackled and be able to bounce back up, but he just has to get back out there and get some more plays."

The offense was balanced, with 338 yards on the ground. Jaylen Walton scored the first points of the game on a 60-yard scamper early in the first quarter on the first play of the second drive. He would finish the day with two touchdowns. Sophomore Eugene Brazley and redshirt-freshman D.K. Buford both added touchdowns on the ground.

The defense was effective, as they held the UT Martin offense to 290 yards and three points. Trae Elston intercepted UT Martin quarterback Jarod Neal and took it 93 yards to the house. The Landshark defense negated the Skyhawks on third down as they only converted 2 of 17 third-down conversions.

The special teams looked great for the Rebels after a shaky start. After the 60-yard run by Walton, the Rebels showed they aren't scared to go for two. They opened their first PAT in a swinging gate formation. A direct snap to the up-back fell just short of the goal line. They would bounce back from an effort from Robert Nkemdiche, as he plowed through the line and blocked a 23-yard field goal attempt. Punt returner Carlos Davis also had a nice play off of a rugby-style punt. He eluded a defender a split second after fielding the bouncing ball, and took it 58 yards into UT Martin territory, which would lead to six.

Freeze was pleased with the effort of his team.

"It was a good first day for us. (UT Martin head coach) Jason (Simpson) is a great friend of mine. The score was a little top-sided. I told him afterwards that I am not sure what I could have done differently and he was great. To be excited for all of our young kids to get in and make plays, and to see them enjoying the game of football, it is very rewarding."

The Rebels look to continue improving this week as they get set to kick off next Saturday against the Fresno State Bulldogs. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. and will be broadcasted on ESPN or ESPNU.

Time to Take a Stand

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

It's finally here...game week! It's been 242 days since the Ole Miss Rebels last took to the gridiron for a clash of the helmets. After a successful 2014 campaign in which Ole Miss knocked off a No. 1-ranked team for the first time in school history and earned a bid to a New Year's Six bowl, Coach Hugh Freeze and the Rebs got back to work in the spring and have continued to work hard throughout fall training camp. The 2015 Rebels are anxious to run out on Hollingsworth Field inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium this Saturday, the beginning of chapter four in the Freeze era.

"We are really, really excited to get it going, as I'm sure every team is," noted Coach Freeze. "We feel as though we have had a successful camp and now it is time to play."

The Rebels' fourth-year head coach fielded questions from the media on Monday, the first weekly press conference of the year
. The team's theme this year is "Take a Stand," and Freeze is optimistic that accountability from everyone will lead to a successful season.

"I like what I have seen in our attitude. I like the way we have taken care of business in fall camp - I just think when you talk about accountability, great teams understand that," said Freeze.

A veteran cast returns to help uphold that accountability. Three-year starting quarterback Bo Wallace is gone, but 18 starters are back, including seven from the nation's top scoring defense that limited opponents to 16.0 ppg last season. Five Rebels were named preseason first team All-Americans, while several others collected preseason All-SEC accolades. All five preseason All-Americans hail from the highly touted 2013 recruiting class and are now upperclassmen as juniors. One of those juniors Rebel Nation is excited to see return is wide receiver Laquon Treadwell. After suffering a gruesome leg injury against Auburn last season, Treadwell is healthy and ready to get back to action.

"I look forward to us throwing it to him for the first time, taking a hit, going to the ground and then bouncing back up and lining up for the next play," said Freeze. "I think that will bring a weird kind of smile to my face. I'll know that he's back."

The amount of talent returning is impressive, but there are also newcomers looking to make an instant impact. On offense, look for freshman Javon Patterson to start at left guard. On the other side of the ball, Tony Bridges has led the secondary in interceptions during fall camp. The JUCO transfer plans to fill the void left by All-American Senquez Golson, who is now a Pittsburgh Steeler.

Of course, the biggest question throughout the offseason has been who will replace Wallace at quarterback. The Ole Miss record holder in career total offense left some big shoes to fill, and three quarterbacks have been in competition for the job. Freeze announced today that JUCO transfer Chad Kelly will take the first snaps with the starters in practice and most likely lead the Rebel offense in its first series on Saturday. However, Kelly has not been named the official starter. Freeze expects both Ryan Buchanan and DeVante Kincade to play Saturday, and he is confident with whoever is out there leading the way.

"It is a very close competition. I like all three. All three of them have different qualities that they bring," explained Freeze.

No matter who is at quarterback, the Rebels will be playing in front of a packed crowd at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday. Season tickets were sold out for the third straight season with a record 52,375 tickets purchased, the most season tickets sold in school history. Increasing attendance at football games has become the new normal at Ole Miss.

It all begins on Saturday at 11 a.m. CT. From the players on the field to the fans in the stands, the Ole Miss family will come together as the 2015 football season kicks off against UT Martin.

Time to Take a Stand!

ATLANTA - On Saturday, fans can tune in to see the Rebels duo of Head Football Coach Hugh Freeze and former Ole Miss basketball player Sean Tuohy compete in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament. The event will be nationally telecast on ESPNU on Saturday, Aug. 1 in a one-hour special starting at 2 p.m. CT.

The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge features the top coaches from around the nation partnered with celebrity alumni in two-man teams competing for a charity and scholarship purse of $520,000. Team Ole Miss split its winnings between the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children and an endowed scholarship at the University of Mississippi.

"We've got a great lineup of coaches and celebrities representing the top programs from around the country," said Gary Stokan, President & CEO of Peach Bowl, Inc. "This event is so special because it not only provides an inside look into these coaches' personalities and level of competition, but an opportunity for these teams to give back to their universities and charities."

ESPN college football play-by-play announcer Dave Neal and analyst Andre Ware serve as commentators for the golf action that includes 26 NCAA head football coaches and celebrities.

The show will also feature exclusive interviews with the participating coaches and highlights from the Long Drive and Closest to the Pin competitions that took place prior to the golf tournament.

The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge is the country's premier head coach and celebrity charity golf event featuring NCAA head coaches and former athletes and celebrities from the same school competing against their rivals for a share of a $520,000 scholarship purse.

In addition to the $520,000 charity and scholarship purse, another $113,305 was generated for charitable organizations including the American Diabetes Association. Over the last nine years, the event has contributed a total of $5.3 million in scholarship and charity, helping make the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl college football's most charitable bowl game.

Coach Freeze and Sean Tuohy - Peach Bowl Challenge
Only 50 days until The Grove is full, the constant shouts of "Hotty Toddy" are in the air, and football kicks off 100 years in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium! Looking forward to this upcoming college football season, seven Rebels were named to five different award watch lists last week. The honors continued this week with four national watch lists released to the public that featured Rebels making the cut.

Junior DB Tony Conner kicked off the week by being selected to the Jim Thorpe Award Watch List, an honor given to the best defensive back in college football. Starting in the Ole Miss secondary during his first two seasons as a Rebel, Conner recorded 135 tackles, 14 TFLs, two sacks and two interceptions. Along with his second team All-SEC accolades last year, the Batesville, Mississippi native has high expectations heading into 2015; he will be one of the leaders in the secondary after the unit lost Senquez Golson and Cody Prewitt to graduation.

Ole Miss had Rebels on both sides of the ball named to the Lombardi Award Watch List on Tuesday. Juniors Robert Nkemdiche (DT) and Laremy Tunsil (OT), a pair of two-year starters, found themselves on the watch list. Already named preseason All-America by various media outlets along with being added to multiple watch lists, there is no doubt both Rebels will apply pressure on opposing linemen this season. Nkemdiche is on five watch lists to lead all Rebels.

He may be somewhat new to the position, but that didn't stop senior linebacker C.J. Johnson to being named to the Butkus Award Watch List for the nation's top linebacker. Johnson isn't entirely new to playing linebacker, taking snaps there as a freshman in 2011; however, he has spent the rest of his Ole Miss career at defensive end. Overall, the senior Rebel has 137 career tackles, including 24.0 for loss and 11.5 sacks, to be an anchor for the Landshark defense.

Closing out the watch lists, junior wide receiver Laquon Treadwell was selected to the Walter Camp Player of the Year Watch List today. Treadwell has received numerous preseason honors this summer, including the Maxwell Award watch list and All-America first team accolades from Athlon and Lindy's. After missing the final four games of the season due to injury, Treadwell has made progress throughout the spring and summer in hopes of returning to top form. Head Coach Hugh Freeze even spoke at SEC Media Days about Treadwell being ready to go for the fall, noting that he "feels more explosive."

Also with SEC Media Days finishing yesterday, six Rebels were named Preseason All-SEC by the media earlier today. Nkemdiche, Treadwell, Tunsil and tight end Evan Engram all made the first team. Conner was named to the second team, and sophomore Marquis Haynes was chosen on the third team. The entire release can be found here.

Below, you can find all of the Rebels that are featured on watch lists heading into the 2015 season.

Rebels on Watch Lists
- Tony Conner - Bronko Nagurski Trophy, Jim Thorpe Award
- Evan Engram - John Mackey Award
- Hugh Freeze - Dodd Trophy
- Will Gleeson - Ray Guy Award
- C.J. Johnson - Butkus Award
- Robert Nkemdiche - Outland Trophy, Bronko Nagurski Trophy, Rotary Lombardi Award, Chuck Bednarik Award, Lott IMPACT Trophy
- Laquon Treadwell - Maxwell Award
- Laremy Tunsil - Outland Trophy, Rotary Lombardi Award
- Jaylen Walton - Paul Hornung Award

The Ole Miss football team also collected an ESPY this week, winning the Best Upset category at the annual sports awards show for the victory over Alabama last season. Senquez Golson and Bo Wallace were in attendance to accept the award on behalf of the Rebels. 


As we near the 2015 college football season, national organizations have started to release watch lists for their respective awards. Through the first week of watch lists being released, multiple Rebels have been announced as players that fans need to keep an eye on throughout the 2015 campaign. In case you were on vacation, soaking in the sun on a beach with your mind thinking ahead to Saturdays in The Grove, let's take a look at which Rebels made the various watch lists.

Starting the week off, senior RB Jaylen Walton was named to the Paul Hornung Award Watch List. The Hornung Award goes to the most versatile player in college football, and Walton definitely has shown his versatility throughout his Ole Miss career. He ranks sixth in program history with 3,354 all-purpose yards and will continue to climb the charts as a senior. Speaking of records, Walton already holds the school standard in kick return yards with 1,542.

Another electric Rebel selected to a watch list was WR Laquon Treadwell. The junior made the Maxwell Award Watch List, an award presented to America's College Player of the Year. With 120 catches in two seasons, Treadwell is looking to bounce back from his heartbreaking injury he suffered against Auburn. People across the country believe he will return better than ever as the Ole Miss receiver has been chosen for the Maxwell Award Watch List along with other preseason honors.

Junior TE Evan Engram is on the John Mackey Award Watch List for the nation's best tight end. In 2014, Engram was a second team All-America pick by Sports Illustrated and a unanimous All-SEC first team selection after he led SEC tight ends with 662 receiving yards, an Ole Miss TE record, and led the nation's tight ends with 17.4 yards per catch.

Since being  top national recruit coming out of high school in 2013, junior DT Robert Nkemdiche has continued to live up to the hype. The Loganville, Georgia, native earned second team All-America and first team All-SEC accolades as a sophomore, leading to a plethora of preseason honors as well as his name on four award watch lists this week. Nkemdiche found himself on the watch lists for the Chuck Bednarik Award, presented to the college football defensive player of the year, and the Lott IMPACT Trophy. The recognition doubled earlier today as Nkemdiche was named to two more watch lists: the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, also awarded to the nation's defensive player of the year, and the Outland Trophy, given to the top interior lineman in the country.

Nkemdiche wasn't the only Rebel on watch lists for the Nagurski Trophy and the Outland Trophy. Junior DB Tony Conner made the Nagurski Trophy Watch List, while junior OT Laremy Tunsil was listed as a player to watch to claim the Outland Trophy at the end of the year. Conner, who has 135 tackles over two seasons, returns as a veteran in the secondary after Ole Miss lost Senquez Golson and Cody Prewitt to graduation. Meanwhile, Tunsil will anchor the Rebels' offensive line with two seasons under his belt as a starter. Check out today's release here.

Ole Miss has top talent in all phases of football. Along with multiple Rebels highlighted on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball, we can't forget about special teams. Don't worry, sophomore punter Will Gleeson has the Rebels covered on the Ray Guy Award Watch List. Gleeson averaged 42.9 yards per punt as a freshman last season, which ranked 28th in the country. Getting a more in-depth look at his stats, he pinned 41.4 percent of his punts inside the 20 and booted 12 punts of 50+ yards.

Next week will feature more watch list releases, and OleMissSports.com will have you covered all week long. You can also follow Ole Miss Football on Twitter (@OleMissFB) for the latest information on the 2015 Rebels.

A list of the Rebels on award watch lists can be found below. Also, scroll through this page to check out the other preseason accolades by Ole Miss football players.
Rebels on Watch Lists
- Tony Conner - Bronko Nagurski Trophy
- Evan Engram - John Mackey Award
- Will Gleeson - Ray Guy Award

Along with head coach Hugh Freeze, three Rebels will represent Ole Miss at the annual SEC Football Media Days next week. Junior Evan Engram, just named to the John Mackey Award Watch List for college football's most outstanding tight end, will join seniors Mike Hilton and C.J. Johnson on the final day of the conference event Thursday, July 16.

The 2015 SEC Football Media Days will take place July 13-16 at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham - The Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover, Alabama. Ole Miss is paired with LSU and Georgia on the final day.

Engram, Hilton and Johnson are three Rebels that have been leaders of the football program; their leadership gave them the opportunity to represent Ole Miss in front of the national media.

In his career, Engram ranks top four in Ole Miss history in receptions (59), receiving yards (930) and receiving touchdowns (5) by a tight end. Aside from the Mackey Award Watch List, other preseason honors for him this summer include All-America first team (Phil Steele, Lindy's, The Kickoff, CFB Matrix) and second team (Sporting News, Athlon), as well as All-SEC first team (Phil Steele, CFB Matrix, Lindy's).

Hilton, who will wear the No. 38 jersey this season as the 2015 Chucky Mullins Courage Award recipient, has started at least one game at every defensive backfield position throughout his Rebel career. Last season, he led Ole Miss with 71 tackles and also tied for 10th in the SEC with three interceptions.

Johnson, one of the anchors of the Landshark D that led the nation in scoring defense, was a game captain for all 13 games during the 2014 campaign. He moved from defensive end to linebacker in the spring, but could still see reps at both positions this fall.

SEC Network will cover the event live throughout the week, and ESPN will be on site as well. Complete coverage can be found here.

Five Ole Miss Rebels were chosen as preseason All-SEC selections by some of the people who work closest with the student-athletes, the football media relations directors. The 14 football media relations directors of the Southeastern Conference institutions voted in the 69th annual AL.com/Birmingham News SEC Preseason Football Report, and five Rebels were tabbed worthy of all-conference accolades.

S Tony Conner, TE Evan Engram, DL Robert Nkemdiche and OT Laremy Tunsil were on the preseason All-SEC First Team, while WR Laquon Treadwell was on the second team. In addition to being named to the first team all-conference list, Conner was predicted to be the best safety in the league. The media relations directors also believed Tunsil will turn out to be the top offensive lineman in the SEC. On defense, Nkemdiche claimed runner-up as the SEC's best defensive lineman.

Not only did the football media relations directors vote on individual accolades, but they also predicted how each team will finish in the conference standings. However, directors could not vote for their own team.

Ole Miss was predicted to finish third in the SEC West and sixth overall in the conference. Alabama and Auburn were ranked first and second in both the division and the overall conference standings.

And in case you were wondering, only 67 more days until kickoff! Robert Nkemdiche looks ready...are you?
