So the Rebels are 2-2 and feeling like they should be 4-0 and possibly ranked No. 1 in the country.
But double-digit second-half leads against a top-5 (at the time) FSU team and No. 1 Alabama didn’t last.
The good thing for Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze is that his players didn’t hang their head. Instead, the Rebels took out their frustrations on Georgia last week 45-14 and will look to keep the momentum at home today.
