The Ole Miss Rebels enter their bye week with a 3-0 record and ranked 10th in the nation in the Associated Press poll.
Coach Freeze started his weekly press conference talking about the heavy hearts the Ole Miss family have over the passing of Stan Sandroni. The Coach added that the Rebels’  thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
Over the past two weeks, Freeze has been very proud of the business-like approach that his team has displayed on game days.
Once this week ends, the Rebels will meet a challenging schedule with the next team up the Memphis Tigers.
These two teams have not met on the gridiron since 2009 at Liberty Bowl Stadium to start the season.
Coaches and players will use the bye week to watch film and scout their next opponent. The Rebels have been on a three-week roll. They’re 3-0 to the season but a few injuries have reared up and the week off can help the healing.  I’Tavius Mathers, Jordan Wilkins and Deterrian Shackelford are all slightly nicked up.
Coach Freeze was asked about what it felt like to be ranked No. 10 in the nation.
“It’s really exciting for everyone and the people here,” said Freeze.
Coach added that the team has come a long way in a short amount of time. He is urging his players not to lose sight of their goals, enjoy the journey and keep their eyes focused on the process, not the results.
Senior quarterback Bo Wallace met with the media after Coach Freeze.
