Favorite Plays of the Year

Senquez Golson's Game-Saving Interception vs. Alabama

On one of the biggest weekends in Ole Miss football history, Senquez Golson turned in one of the biggest plays in Ole Miss football history, as he picked off Alabama quarterback Blake Sims with 37 seconds left in the game to secure a 23-17 win over No. 1 Alabama. 

The game-tying touchdown, from Bo Wallace to Vince Sanders, the forced fumble by Channing Ward, and the game-winning touchdown, from Wallace to Jaylen Walton, deserve mention, but Golson's interception is the signature play that effectively ended the game.

Austin Anderson's Walk-Off HR vs. Auburn

The baseball team showed its toughness all season, on the way to Omaha and the College World Series, winning more than its fair share of close games, and none were more dramatic than Austin Anderson's 13th-inning, walk-off home run against Auburn.

The Tigers had intentionally walked him in the 9th and 11th innings, and intended to intentionally walk him in the 13th, but the Auburn pitcher left the ball too close to the plate, and Anderson sent the ball over the fence in right field.

Jaylen Walton's Long TD Run vs. Mississippi State

In the face of adversity and a three-game SEC losing streak, the football team reclaimed the Egg Bowl to cap a 9-3 regular season, their best season since 2003.

Jaylen Walton turned in a career game, rushing for 148 yards on 14 carries, highlighted by a 91-yard touchdown run that made SportsCenter's Top 10 plays and proved to be the game-winning score in a 31-17 win over Mississippi State.

Errol Robinson's Relay Throw vs. Louisiana-Lafayette

The baseball team had its share of big plays in Game 2 and Game 3 of the Super Regional against Louisiana-Lafayette that sent the Rebels to their fifth College World Series appearance and their first since 1972.

There were some big scoring plays in the two games, such as Preston Overbey's solo home run of Game 2, or Holt Perdzock's bases-clearing triple in Game 3, but I'm going to highlight the relay play from Braxton Lee to Errol Robinson to Will Allen to keep the game-tying run off the board in the seventh inning of Game 3.

(Go to 16:45 mark for Robinson's play)

Sam Kendricks' Championship Jump

Sam Kendricks delivered another national championship for Ole Miss, as he cleared 18-8.25 to become the first back-to-back NCAA outdoor champion for the Rebels since 2000-2001 and the first back-to-back outdoor pole vault champion since 2006-07.

Kendrick elected to forego his senior year of eligibility with the track & field team to pursue professional and international athletic opportunities, as he prepares for U.S. and World Championships and the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Favorite Games of the Year

Football Knocks Off Top-Ranked Alabama

A weekend that began with the program's first appearance on College GameDay was closed out with a thrilling 23-17 victory over No. 1 Alabama, the program's first win over a top-ranked opponent.

Down 14-3 at halftime, the Rebels outscored the Crimson Tide 20-3 in the second half to improve to 5-0 for the first time since 1962. After the win, the fans stormed the field and tore down the goal posts. Ole Miss would go on to start the season 7-0 and rise as high as No. 3 in the national polls.

Baseball Secures a Berth in the College World Series

The baseball team preached toughness all season and it was on display as the Rebels secured a berth in the College World Series with a 10-4 win over Louisiana-Lafayette in the rubber-game of the Super Regional in Lafayette.

A well-executed relay play kept the game-tying run off the board in the seventh, and Holt Perdzock broke things open in the ninth with a bases-clearing triple as part of five-run inning for Ole Miss.

Football Recaptures Egg Bowl

Ole Miss reclaimed the prize of the football program with a 31-17 win over No. 4 Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl. It marked the first time the Rebels notched two wins over top-five teams since 1969.

The win capped a 9-3 regular season, the program's best regular season since 2003, and sent them to the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. It also closed the door on the Bulldogs' College Football Playoff hopes.

Baseball Clinches Key Series over Mississippi State

There might have bigger wins for the baseball team, but the series-clincher over Mississippi State, from the environment, to the circumstances, to the way they won, appeared to have changed the trajectory of the Rebels, who went on to advance to Omaha and the College World Series. 

Coming off an extra-inning loss in the Game 2 of the series, the Rebels pounded out 20 hits to race past Mississippi State for a 12-2 win in Starkville.

Billy Chadwick Goes Out a Winner in Last SEC Home Match

Likely needing a win to advance to the postseason, the Ole Miss men's tennis team delivered legendary head coach Billy Chadwick a 4-3 win over No. 10 Texas A&M. Stefan Lindmark cliched the win with a three-set win at No. 4 singles. 

The win not only sent Chadwick out a winner in his last SEC home match, but it also helped the Rebels earn their 21st straight NCAA Championship bid.

Favorite Stories of the Year

Return of the Powder Blues: How They Came to Be

As part of the Memphis home football game weekend honoring the life and spirit of Chucky Mullins, the Ole Miss football team wore powder blue helmets, replicas of the ones worn by the Rebels in 1989, the year Mullins was injured and paralyzed during the Vanderbilt game.

Kendricks Wears Two Uniforms

In one world, Sam Kendrick is a national champion and an Olympic hopeful. In another world, he is an Army officer in trainer and on track to accept a commission and begin his military career.

Sophomore Surge

The historic 2013 football signing class has been instrumental in helping change the culture around the football program, helping lead the Rebels to the first nine-win regular season since 2003 and a "New Year's Six" Bowl game. 

Buy-In Paying Off for Golson

Senquez Golson became the first consensus first team All-American and first unanimous choice since Michael Oher in 2008. His success on the field, he has said and his coaches have said, came from buying into the program change under head coach Hugh Freeze.

Scholtz Turns the Page on Outstanding Junior Season

Nik Scholtz became the fourth Ole Miss men's tennis player to be named SEC Player of the Year and the first to earn SEC Freshman and Player of the Year honors during his career. He earned a final national ranking of No. 14 in singles, making him a three-time All-American.

    Gray pants with red and blue stripes on the legs have served Ole Miss football my entire life time. The blue on blue, red on red and white on white are hideous and UGLY! Leave the pants alone.
