The Rebels Aim for Another Bowl, and Maybe Something More

Ole Miss comes into this season trying to become what they essentially were under David Cutcliffe: a perennial bowl team. The ceiling on the Rebels this year isn’t expected to be as high as it was last year, when they were seen as one of the strongest challenges to Alabama’s repeat SEC West championship. Winning two out of three key games could decide whether the bowling dreams come true; Houston Nutt’s attempt to live up to his reputation as a surprise coach by doing even better hinges on three other games.
