12/30/2013 - Bo knows homecomings. Mississippi quarterback Bo Wallace, a product of nearby Pulaski, Tenn., accounted for all three of his team's touchdowns Monday as the Rebels held off Georgia Tech for a 25-17 win in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl at LP Field. Wallace completed 22 of 32 passes for 256 yards with one scoring pass and an interception. He added 86 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries for Ole Miss (8-5), which won its second consecutive bowl game under second-year coach Hugh Freeze.
The Yellow Jackets (7-6) pulled within 23-17 with two scores in a 67-second span early in the fourth quarter. Placekicker Harrison Butker converted a 38-yard field goal with 14:43 remaining, followed by Wallace's only mistake, an interception by cornerback D.J. White. Georgia Tech quarterback Vad Lee heaved a 72-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Darren Waller, who sped past falling nickel back Tony Conner, and the Yellow Jackets were back in the game. - The Sports Xchange
12/30/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Rebels' offense goes as QB Bo Wallace goes. Wallace's struggles in recent games have been mentioned already, but the junior signal caller has still turned in a solid season. He has passed for 3,090 yards and 17 touchdowns against nine interceptions and ranks third in the SEC in passing with 257 yards per game and in total offense at 279 yards per game. Wallace leads the league's third-best passing offense, and with a running game that's tailed off as of late, it needs to be in sync for the Rebels to have a chance. - The Sports Xchange
11/16/2013 - Bo Wallace threw for three touchdowns and ran for another as Mississippi set a school record for total offense with 751 yards Saturday as the Rebels defeated Troy 51-21. Wallace was 17 for 26 for 272 yards and rushed for 66 yards on nine carries as the Rebels (7-3) extended their winning streak to four games. The total offense production was the best since 1951, when the Rebels totaled 623 yards against Auburn.
Laquon Treadwell had touchdown catches for 25 and 23 yards. Quincy Adeboyejo added a 24-yard scoring pass from Wallace, who scored a 29-yard touchdown run. Jaylen Walton scored on a 4-yard run and a 43-yard pass from Barry Brunetti before Mark Dodson added a fourth quarter touchdown on a 1-yard run. Troy (5-6), trailing 27-7 at halftime, scored on fourth quarter touchdown runs of 2 and 1 yards by Jordan Chunn and Daron White, respectively. Brandon Burks had a 5-yard scoring run in the first quarter. The loss was the third straight for the Sun Belt Conference Trojans, who can become bowl eligible with a win in their season finale with Texas State. - AP Sports

Arkansas kept the game close into the third quarter, pulling within 20-17 on Kiero Small's 1-yard touchdown run. But the Rebels broke it open on two long touchdown passes - one for 75 yards to Logan and the next 52 yards to Moncrief - and the Razorbacks were never seriously threatened again. Jonathan Williams led Arkansas with 67 rushing yards. - AP Sports
10/27/2013 - Bo Wallace threw for 186 yards and two touchdowns, I'Tavius Mathers rushed for 138 yards and another touchdown and Mississippi rolled to a 59-14 win over Idaho on Saturday.

Backup quarterback Barry Brunetti completed 7 of 7 passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns. - AP Sports
10/21/2013 - The banged-up Ole Miss D did a very nice job against LSU. The Rebs picked off Zach Mettenberger three times on his first 12 attempts Saturday night. Maybe even more noteworthy was the way Bo Wallace and Ole Miss carved up John Chavis' D, which had been coming on. The Rebels piled up 525 yards and went 11-18 on third downs. Just when some of us piled onto that Tigers bandwagon. - Bruce Feldman, CBSSports.com
10/19/2013 - Mississippi kicker Andrew Ritter said his game-winning, 41-yard field goal attempt felt good off his foot. Then he watched with dread as it started drifting right. By the time it reached the uprights, it was dangerously close. The senior held his breath. So did the rest of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. It sailed through with about a foot to spare. The crowd exploded. It was the finishing touch on Mississippi's 27-24 upset victory over No. 6 LSU on Saturday night. ''Can you believe it?'' Ritter asked.
It was a happy ending for Ole Miss (4-3, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) after the Rebels let a 17-point lead slip away completely when LSU's Zach Mettenberger hit Jarvis Landry for a 4-yard touchdown to tie it at 24 with 3:19 remaining. But the Rebels responded with a methodical, 14-play drive that ended in Ritter's field goal with two seconds remaining. It capped a remarkable day of upsets across the league. LSU joined Georgia, Texas A&M, Florida and South Carolina as ranked SEC teams to lose Saturday. Bo Wallace completed 30 of 39 passes for 346 yards and Jaylen Walton rushed for 105 yards and two touchdowns for the Rebels, who snapped a three-game losing streak. - AP Sports
10/01/2013 - Maybe next time Ole Miss won't be quite so talkative before taking on a big-time opponent in a big game. Before going to Alabama, QB Bo Wallace had said his team would definitely score points against the proud Crimson Tide defense because with their wide receivers, the Rebels can score against anybody. Wallace said later his comments were misconstrued, but the bulletin board material had been posted. Tide players said afterward the remarks served as motivation for them in their 25-0 victory over the Rebels. "We looked at it as a challenge, as we were being hunted," junior DE Jeoffrey Pagan said. "With all the things that Ole Miss was saying, we took it personal. "We wanted to come out and dominate the game and the line of scrimmage." - The Sports Xchange
09/15/2013 - Mississippi found a running play that worked against Texas, and just like BYU a week earlier, kept running it again and again. The Longhorns couldn't stop Jeff Scott from blistering them on the speed option to the outside and No. 25 Ole Miss rolled over reeling Texas 44-23 on Saturday night. Scott ran for 164 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries and also scored on a 73-yard punt return. Bo Wallace passed for two touchdowns and ran for another and the Rebels' defense dominated the second half. "It's so sweet," Wallace said. "I was telling those guys ... they put up 66 on us (last year). I was wanting to score that many if we could."
And for Mississippi, a road win at a historical powerhouse such as Texas will be another confidence boost under second-year coach Hugh Freeze. The Rebels are ranked for the first time since 2009, are 3-0 for the first time since 1989 and have a week off before playing at No. 1 Alabama. "To come in and stand toe-to-toe with them, I do think nationally it's going to help us in recruiting. It's a step in the right direction but it's only one step. We didn't take six tonight, we just took one," Freeze said. - AP Sports
09/08/2013 - Quarterbacks Bo Wallace and Barry Brunetti directed Mississippi to a 31-point outburst in a 20-minute span in the first half to highlight a win over FCS member Southeast Missouri 31-13. The Rebels (2-0) scored on five consecutive series in the decisive surge, highlighted by touchdown passes of 64 and 67 yards from Wallace to Evan Engram and Donte Moncrief, respectively. Wallace was 8 of 15 for 188 yards and did not play in the second half.
Brunetti scored a 4-yard touchdown run and had a game-high 111 yards on 18 carries. Ole Miss accounted for 532 yards in total offense, including a 10-yard touchdown run from I'Tavious Mathers and a 37-yard field goal from Andrew Ritter. Southeast Missouri (0-2) of the Ohio Valley Conference, was led by Scott Lathorp, who threw touchdown passes of 14 and 16 yards to D.J. Foster and Spencer Davis, respectively. Lathrop finished 16 of 24 for 159 yards. - AP Sports
08/29/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: QB Bo Wallace led the Southeastern Conference with 17 interceptions a year ago but was also the catalyst for much of the Rebels' offensive success. Despite just coming back from offseason shoulder surgery, Wallace's decision making was once again scrutinized during preseason camp as he struggled at times to make plays with his arm. In Ole Miss' late 27-26 loss to Vanderbilt last year, Wallace completed 31 of 49 passes for 403 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for a score. The main challenge for the Rebels will be to keep the junior gun slinger upright. In last year's meeting, Wallace was sacked three times. - The Sports Xchange
08/26/2013 - TOP MISSISSIPPI PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 4. QB Bo Wallace (6-4, 205, 4.89)*...As is usually the case, improvement at the quarterback position sparked the Rebels' surprising success in 2012. Wallace, a junior college transfer, was named the starter just days before the 2012 opener but emerged as one of the SEC's breakout performers, completing 64 percent of his passes for 2,994 yards and 22 touchdowns. The athletic quarterback also rushed for 390 yards and led the Rebels with eight touchdowns on the ground.
Wallace originally signed with Freeze at Arkansas State in 2010, but after redshirting transferred to East Mississippi Community College. He spent just one season at the junior college level, but it was a spectacular one, guiding EMCC to a 12-0 record and the National Junior College title while setting single-season records for passing yards (4,604), total yards (4,810) and touchdown passes (53). - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
08/26/2013 - TOP MISSISSIPPI PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 4. QB Bo Wallace (6-4, 205, 4.89)*...Wallace's size and ability to attack defenses with both his arm and legs is intriguing. Like many college quarterbacks, his production was enhanced by a scheme that often allowed him to make pre-snap reads and throw simple screens, etc. He too frequently challenged defenders in 2012, staring down his targets. Wallace led SEC quarterbacks with 17 interceptions thrown. He has arm talent to significantly improve upon this number in 2013.
Wallace is a bit rough around the edges, but with two more seasons of potential eligibility remaining, he has time to develop. Wallace missed the spring after recovering from offseason surgery on his shoulder (clavicle) but returned in May and is expected to pick up where he left off when the Rebels open their 2013 campaign at Vanderbilt August 29. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
08/14/2013 - 2013 MANNING AWARD WATCH LIST: Bo Wallace Jr. OLE MISS 60.0,...Wallace, who was previously named to watch lists for the Maxwell and Davey O'Brien awards, passed for the third-most yards (2,994) and fourth-most touchdowns (22) in Ole Miss history last year en route to capturing the C Spire Conerly Trophy as the state's top collegiate player. The junior from Pulaski, Tenn., finished top five in the SEC in points, total offense and passing yards in his first season in Oxford. He also participated in the Manning Passing Academy this offseason. - Mississippi football

05/05/2013 - Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace threw the football this week for the first time since January, Rebels coach Hugh Freeze told the Clarion-Ledger on Thursday. Freeze was in Atlanta with the rest of the SEC coaches for the unveiling of the SEC Network, set to launch in August 2014. Freeze had previously updated Wallace's status with the hope that he would begin throwing soon, and the Rebels coach was pleased to confirm the quarterback was ahead of schedule. "I feel good about his first day," Freeze said of Wallace's throwing on Tuesday. "He felt good."
Wallace quickly became the starting quarterback after arriving from junior college prior to the 2012 season. The rising junior made an impressive debut, racking up the second-most total yards (3,384) and fourth most touchdown passes (22) in a single season in school history. Wallace also led the team with eight rushing touchdowns, a feat that had not been accomplished by a Rebel quarterback since Archie Manning.
But for Ole Miss to take another step forward offensively, Wallace has to be even better and limit his mistakes in big games. With nine starters returning on offense, a healthy Wallace should be able to pick up where he left off alongside Donte Moncrief, Jeff Scott and others. - Chip Patterson, CBSSports.com
