Ole Miss & Black History Month

The record for the longest fumble recovery for a touchdown in Ole Miss football history belongs to Cassius Ware. Many a Rebel faithful remember the season opening whipping of the Auburn Tigers at Vaught-Hemingway in 1992. With Ole Miss leading, 21-14, and Auburn primed with a first-and-goal at the Rebels’ five-yardline, Joe Lee Dunn sent at least five players on a blitz. Linebacker Marquis Thomas steamrolled Auburn quarterback Stan White, the ball squirted in the air, newcomer Cassius Ware grabbed it and ran 91 yards for a touchdown for a 28-14 lead. Ware’s record-setting touchdown broke the Tigers, and the Rebels went on to the 45-21 victory.

“I got the ball, took off and kept looking at the goal posts,” said Ware, a Northwest Mississippi Community College transfer who had team high 14 tackles. “It was a looonnnggg way. I never thought I would make it. I realized I was in the end zone when I thought I was dead.”
