Ole Miss vs. Idaho
Vaught-Hemingway Stadium – Oxford, Miss.

Ole Miss Head Coach Hugh Freeze

On the game…
“It’s good to get a win tonight. The first half was a bit sloppy and undisciplined. The first six or seven minutes were really good, but the rest of the first half we were going through the motions. I was disappointed at halftime, but I felt like we played a pretty solid second half. It was great to get everyone in and to come out injury-free.

“The second half was more of what I would hope for. I’m a realist and I don’t think it is a realistic expectation for them to be emotionally charged after the stretch of games we’ve been through. I expect them to focus, catch and protect the football, and play penalty free, and we didn’t live up to it in the first half. I feel better with the way they played in the second half though.”

On players who don’t normally get playing time…
“The first guy that jumps out would be (Mark) Dodson. He showed some explosion and physical runs. Kailo (Moore) showed some really good things on our swing routes. We think both of them are really good players.”

On bye week…
“We need it desperately. We played without seven starters again tonight, and if you count C.J. (Johnson) and Aaron (Morris) it’s even more than that. We’ve played without some key people, and this bye comes at a really good time for us to get them healthy for the remaining games.”  

Ole Miss Players

#14, Serderius Bryant, LB
On tonight…
“I wouldn’t say the defense performed great since we gave up 14 points. The goal was to hold them to zero. But in the end we did what we had to do to stop them from scoring anymore.”

On week off before Arkansas…
“We have a lot of injuries. We’re going to try to heal all the injuries and get everyone back to 100 percent so we can beat Arkansas.”

#85, Ja-Mes Logan, WR
On first touchdown…
“The play was a slant and go. I ran a slant and the cornerback bit on it. If it wasn’t for the offensive line, Bo (Wallace) wouldn’t have been able to make such a great throw. They both did a good job.”

On second touchdown…
“It was a broken down play, Bo kept scrambling and I just kept running.”

On Homecoming…
“As a senior it was my last Homecoming, so I was glad we got the win.”

Idaho Head Coach Paul Petrino

On the game…
“Our guys fought hard most of the time, but we missed a couple of tackles that hurt us. We got hurt when we got down there [red zone]; the one time we missed the field goal that we didn’t get a touchdown, and the other time we got down there on fourth and one. If you get two touchdowns there, then it maybe keeps you in the game. It makes you a little more competitive. Our guys fought pretty hard for the most part, but we’ve still got a long way to go.”

On Ole Miss making big plays…
“We’ve just got to do a better job. We started two freshmen at corner tonight. They’re just going to keep fighting and keep growing, and I thought they both competed hard. They both got beat at times, but they competed as hard as they could. We just have to keep getting better.”
