Ole Miss Football: Egg Bowl a Big Game for Freeze

There have been many critical games for Hugh Freeze in his tenure at Ole Miss. The Egg Bowl on Saturday may be one of his biggest.

Everyone who has followed the Ole Miss football program knows the remarkable job Hugh Freeze has done in his time in Oxford. He has won one more game than the previous season every year until this year. Make no mistake, the 2016 campaign has been a disappointing one. However, it can either be somewhat salvaged or be a complete disaster. That will be determined on Saturday in the Egg Bowl against Mississippi State.

I would argue that the biggest game so far for Hugh Freeze in his Ole Miss career was the 2012 Egg Bowl. The Rebels needed a win to gain bowl eligibility. Not only that, it probably allowed them to sign Robert Nkemdiche, Laremy Tunsil and Laquon Treadwell. Those three brought success in the following three seasons for Ole Miss. If Freeze doesn’t sign them, who knows what trajectory the program would have gone on. It likely wouldn’t have been as good as the 2013, 2014 and 2015 seasons were.

Two Rebels – Mike Hilton and Alex Schneider – will participate in the first SEC Corporate Career Tour to be held Nov. 29-Dec. 1, the league office announced Tuesday.

The event, hosted in Atlanta, will be held in conjunction with the 2016 SEC Fall Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) meeting.

The group is scheduled to visit the headquarters and meet with executives and talent acquisition staff at several corporations in the Atlanta area including Chick-fil-A, Boys & Girls Club of America, CNN/Turner Broadcasting System and Jackson Spalding. Also included on the agenda is a presentation from Serviam Partners President Randy Hain, Growing Leaders, and former SEC student-athletes Ben Troupe and Josh Foliart on leadership and life after sports.

The Fall Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) meeting will include a unique first time experience for meeting participants. The meeting will focus on providing a corporate career tour as a part of the SEC Career Academy. Job opportunities and advice will be introduced to student-athletes seeking career options and exposure.

Hilton and Schneider are among 26 current and former SEC student-athletes participating in the event.

Hilton was a four-year letterman for the Rebels, starting at every position in the secondary during his collegiate career. Last year’s Chucky Mullins Courage Award winner, Hilton finished his Ole Miss career with 226 tackles, 25.5 TFLs, 32 passes defended and six interceptions.
