Hugh Freeze and the Ole Miss Rebels are coming off a big win over Georgia.

The Rebels step out of conference this week, but they should not take their opponent lightly. Ole Miss takes on a Memphis team that beat them last year. The Tigers don’t have the same head coach or quarterback from last season, Justin Fuente is now the head coach at Virginia Tech and Paxton Lynch was drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Ole Miss and Memphis kickoff at 7 p.m. in Oxford. Here was what Freeze had to say about Memphis, the week ahead and the Georgia game:

Facing a must-win game, Ole Miss took the fight to visiting Georgia and never gave the visitors a chance to make it interesting.

And for the Rebels, it might just prove to be a turning point in its season.

Ole Miss opened a 45-0 lead midway through the third quarter and physically dominated Georgia throughout the entire game. Neither had coach Hugh Freeze, apparently.

“We just beat a top-15 team pretty soundly. It was a good day for us,” Freeze said. “We made some changes at linebacker and (defensive coordinator) Dave (Wommack) had a great plan.”

With a 31-0 lead on Georgia, the Rebels were in a familiar situation – with a big lead in a big game. Ole Miss had already lost from that position twice in 2016.

The Ole Miss baseball team wrapped up its second week of fall practice with a pair of intrasquad scrimmages over the weekend at Swayze Field. While the first scrimmage highlighted the Rebel bats on Friday, the pitchers controlledSunday’s intrasquad.

Several Rebels recorded multi-hit games Friday afternoon, led by Ryan Olenek. The sophomore went 4-for-5 with a triple, three RBI and two runs in his team’s 8-4 win. Junior Kyle Watson and freshman Trace Tyre tallied two hits apiece, while junior college transfer Chase Cockrell added a three-run homer in the victory.

David Parkinson, Will Ethridge and Parker Caracci each allowed one earned run over 3.0 innings of work. Parkinson struck out a team-high four, and Ethridge gave up just one hit out of the 11 batters he faced.

On the other team, senior Colby Bortles belted a home run to deep center field and smacked a triple as well. It was the first of two homers Bortles hit during the two-game weekend. Freshman shortstop Grae Kessinger went 2-for-4 with a run, batting in the two-hole. The bright spot was sophomore pitcher Andy Pagnozzi, who surrendered only two hits over three scoreless innings of work on the rubber.

Concluding the weekend, the Ole Miss arms filled the scoreboard with zeroes until freshman catcher Cooper Johnson singled in the game’s first run in the bottom of the seventh. Johnson’s two hits along with back-to-back homers by Bortles and Michael Fitzsimmons, catapulted the Red team to a 5-0 victory. The quartet of senior Sean Johnson, freshman Jackson Tavel, freshman Korey Bell and freshman Jason Barber limited the Blue team to only three hits.

Despite the setback, the Blue team had six solid scoreless frames from the duo of sophomore James McArthur and freshman Houston Roth. McArthur was bringing the heat Sunday night, striking out eight hitters and allowing only one hit in 3.0 innings. Roth put together a fine performance of his own, giving up one base hit and recording four strikeouts in a scoreless outing.

The Rebels will return to the diamond for two more intrasquad scrimmages this weekend. Friday’s Red-Blue matchup is slated for a 2:30 p.m. start (Sept. 30), while a6:15 p.m. first pitch is scheduled for Sunday night (Oct. 2).
