to the next leve Rebels have first ten win season since 1971 along with being COTTON BOWL CHAMPIONS by Jeremy Roberts The 2003 Rebel Football program proved to have one of the most competitive and hyped up seasons seen in many years. Some of the most prominate SEC teams graced Hollingsworth Field at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and were beaten by the Rebels. A victorious senior season, and an appearance to the Cotton Bowl catapulted the Rebel stop the next level of SEC ball. The season opened against Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn. in August. Vandy held the Rebels 48 yards of total offense in the first quarter and also forced the Rebels to settle for a field goal at the end of the first half, stopping the Rebels three times from the Vandy two. The Rebels would battle past Vanderbilt ' s defense to a 24-21 victory. Next, the Rebels would fall short to Memphis in Tiger territory. It marked the first Memphis win over the Rebels since 1994. In this game, the Tigers overcame four touchdown passes by Ole Miss quarterback Eli Manning. Chris Collins recovered the ball at one point along with Lorenzo Townsend making a five-yard score. Bill Flowers also had a 40 yard touchdown after a short Memphis punt to the Tiger forty. All-in-all, the Tigers controlled the final quarter scoring twenty-three points. The first home game for the Rebels came September 13 against Louisiana-Monroe. Manning as 22-of-26 for 353 yards and three touchdowns allowed the Rebels to score 45 straight points to beat Louisiana-Monroe 59-14. During this game, the Rebels also became the 30th school in NCAA history to reach 575 victories. Texas Tech would come in the next week to beat the Rebels 49-45. It was a clos e game throughout, but Texas Tech had the opportunity to seize control in the first half. Although the Rebels lost, Chris Collins broke the Mississippi career reception record on the Rebels ' opening drive. That catch gave Collins 143 career receptions. Playing the Gators in The Swamp was the next challenge for the Rebels. In 2002, the Rebels beat Florida 17-14 which lead to the dismantle of the goal posts but that was not the case in 2003 (no posts were removed). The Rebels came into Florida with having the nation ' s worst pass defense, but it was good enough to beat Florida. The Rebels opened SEC play 2-0 for the second straight year by rallying past the twenty-fourth ranked Florida, 20-17. In a press conference after the game, Flowers, a junior from Pelham, Ala., said " It ' s great to have this kind of victory. It ' s more of a morale victory for us. We got out confidence back, especially the defensive backs. " The Rebels returned home for Homecoming on October 11 to gain a shutout over Arkansas State, 55-0. An interception by linebacker Justin Wade setup the first of two field goals by Jonathan Nichols bringing the score 20-0 at the half. Reserve quarterback Michael Spurlock led the Rebels to a pair of touchdown drives in the final period. The Alabama Crimson Tide would be the next team defeated b the Rebels on Hollingsworth Field. Victories over Alabama have been the rarest of commodities for Ole Miss with only beating the Crimson Tide eight times in 51 meetings. Manning came out firing as Ole miss went 24-0 when Brandon Jacobs scored on a ten-yard run with eleven seconds left in the first quarter. The Rebels beat the Tide 43-28. The Arkansas victory proved to be worthwhile as Nichols kicked four field goals as the Rebels defeated the 21st-ranked Razorbacks 19-7 to move into first place in the SEC West. The Rebels remained in first place and improved to 5-0 in the SEC for the first time since 1963 after holding off South Carolina to a 43-40 victory. Tremaine Turner ran for a career-high 117 yards on twenty-five carries. " It all worked out in the end, " Turner said. " We found a way to win. " The Rebels traveled to Auburn on November 8 to face Tommy Tubberville ' s Tigers. " We saw 15-20 plays that if we hadn ' t made the, we wouldn ' t have had a chance to win that football game, " Ole Miss Head Coach David Cutcliffe said. The Rebels held off Auburn with a 24-20 victory and a 6 - record. The final home game against LSU proved to be the toughest and fatalist game played all season with a the number three LSU Tigers beating the 15th ranked Rebels 17-14. Nichols missed two field goals during this game. Ole Miss has its six-game winning streak snapped, while LSU won its fifth straight. The decision of the West was but on the back burner as the Rebels traveled to Starkville for the 100th meeting to determine where the Egg Bowl will stay for another year. The Rebels sent MSU Head Coach Jackie Sherill into retirement with his worst Egg Bowl loss ever. The rainy, cold atmosphere did not stop the Rebels from having an great SEC season. The 31-0 shutout allowed the Rebels to ask " Are We Atlanta Bound? " The Rebels remained in the SEC West title race and reached nine regular-season victories for the first time since 1990. Ole miss could have earned its first trip to the SEC Championships if No. 3 LSU would have lost to Arkansas the day after the traditional Thanksgiving Egg Bowl. Every Rebel fan spent their day screaming " soowie " in a painstaking battle between LSU and the Hog s. The Rebels would have to settle for Co-West Champions along with an appearance to the Cotton Bowl. Eli Manning threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score in his final game for Ole Miss, leading the No. 16 Rebels to a 31-28 victory over No. 21 Oklahoma State in the 2004 Cotton Bowl. One is obviously able to tell that this was a successful season for the Rebels and has truly catapulted them to the next level. What is in store for the 2004 season? Sv « " This raises the bar for us. " -Head Coach David Cutcliffe after the Cotton Bowl

" interview with Coach David Cutcliffe could not be completed due to scheduling conflicts. Jonathan iJicdoCs Jonathan Nichols a junior kicker from Greenwood, Miss. " This season was astonishing and amazing. We started back in January and knew this season was special. We were doing it for the seniors. " " Football is a team sport. It ' s a bunch of guys coming together as a family to really work hard before playing the big game. " " From a kicking standpoint, the most important kick is the next, you cant worry if you miss the last one. You have to go on to the next, which is why I would like to go back to the LSU game and kick the 36 yarder. It was personally a disappointment and for the team as well but if given the chance to go back, I know we could have beaten them. " " We have great expectations for next season and we have a great recruiting class that has helped out a lot. If everyone continues to work hard, we can accomplish big things. " Cody Ridgeway a junior punter from Jackson, Tenn. " This was an exciting and remarkable season. This shows that football is the true definition of teamwork and if people are not doing their jobs, it can make or break the plays. This was a great year were everyone came together defensively and offensively. We were more like a family than a team. The coaches were really enthusiastic and knew what they were doing. They love the game. ' " If I was able to go back to the Texas Tech game, I would have liked to catch the ball that went over my head. " " Next season we plan to come out fast and play ball and hopefully finish like we did this year, if not even better. " Taye Biddle a sophomore wide receiver from Decauter, Ala. " This season was exciting and surprising. We made big steps and made progress. We showed the fans and everyone what will be going on in the future. And next season, we are going pick up where we left off. We will basically be the same team but would have matured. " " In the two games were I had drops, I would have kept my eye on the ball and made the catch. It ' s a common mistake wide receivers make but I would, if I could, go back to that and make the catch. " " I believe you should take everything as it unfolds. Just take it as it comes.
