FRIDAY FLASHBACK rewinds to some of the memorable Ole Miss games from this week's all-time series. This week features the Rebels' disputed win over Arkansas in 1914.

Ole Miss and Arkansas will meet for the 57th time on Saturday and that fact is not in question. While both schools agree that Arkansas just leads the all-time series, the exact record is in doubt with the Rebels claiming a 26-29-1 deficit and the Razorbacks boasting a 30-25-1 advantage. The discrepancy stems from the 1914 meeting which Ole Miss won 13-7 in Little Rock. Arkansas contends the Rebels used an ineligible player, a charge Ole Miss vehemently denies, and counts the game as a forfeit win. As all the participants in the contest are no longer living, it's doubtful that the issue will ever be resolved.

What follows is a description of the game from the Memphis Commercial Appeal dated the day after the Nov. 13 meeting.

MISSISSIPPI DOWNS ARKANSAS ELEVEN

Razorbacks Beaten on Little Rock Field, 13 to 7

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Nov. 13 - "Ole Miss" outplayed Arkansas at all points of a football game and won,  13 to 7,  in the contest staged at West End Park this afternoon.

Driver's men uncovered an attack built around smiling Joe Evans, which the Razorbacks could not fathom, and it was not until the last few minutes of play that the Pickering machine was able to count on its rivals.

The Mississippi machine came through the game in good shape, and will have all of the first string available for the Texas game.  Coach Driver left tonight with the squad for Austin where on Tuesday Texas University will be met.
