Ole Miss Football: It’s Revenge Week for the Rebels

Arkansas ended Ole Miss’ hopes of winning an SEC West title last season. It is time for Ole Miss football to seek out revenge on the Razorbacks.

Fourth-year Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema has only won seven SEC games in his tenure with the Razorbacks. Unfortunately for Ole Miss fans, two of those have come at the expense of the Rebels. It is tough for any Ole Miss fan to argue who the better team was in 2014 in Fayetteville.

The ‘Hogs jumped to a 17-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back, winning the game 30-0. Bo Wallace left the game with an ankle injury and all in all the game was just a disaster for the Rebels.
