The Ole Miss Rebels have struggled in the second half of games this season.
Like, really, really struggled.
Ole Miss is one of seven FBS teams that have not trailed at halftime thus far, joining Boise St., Clemson, Florida, Michigan, San Diego St. and Washington. Yet, the Rebels are 3-5 and in serious danger of missing a bowl game this season.

So how do the Rebels have such a great first half record but have struggled at the end?
Week 1: Ole Miss led Florida State 28-13 at halftime. The Rebels lost 45-34.
Week 3: Ole Miss led Alabama 24-17 at halftime. The Rebels lost 48-43.
Week 6: Ole Miss and Arkansas were tied 20-20 at halftime. The Rebels lost 34-30.
Week 7: Ole Miss and LSU were tied 21-21 at halftime. The Rebels lost 38-21.
Week 8: Ole Miss led Auburn 22-20 at halftime. The Rebels lost 40-29.
It looks like Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze needs to work on his halftime adjustments.
