Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze brought his team to Nashville in hopes of getting the Rebels’ sixth win of the season.
Instead, he left with the sting of a 38-17 defeat at the hands of the Vanderbilt Commodores. Not only did it hurt the Rebels’ chances of making a bowl game, but it sapped all the momentum from a win against Texas A&M the prior week as Ole Miss moves toward the Egg Bowl to finish the regular season.
The Rebels are 5-6 and will be hungry for a win against Mississippi State.
Here’s what Freeze had to say following his team’s loss on Saturday:
