    OXFORD, Miss. – The Hugh Freeze era officially kicked off at Ole Miss on Saturday and thanks to a stellar effort from his dual-threat quarterback the Rebels came away with a 49-27 win over Central Arkansas.
    The Rebels opened up the scoring when quarterback Bo Wallace gashed the Central Arkansas (0-1) defense up the middle for a 25-yard score on the ground. The teams would then trade a set of touchdowns before the Bears used a 13-0 run in the second quarter to seize a 20-14 lead at the half.
    After the break, Ole Miss (1-0) rebounded quite well. The Rebs took advantage of a little bit of luck when Wallace fumbled at the end of a 5-yard run. After the ball came loose, it found its way into the arms of Ole Miss wide-out Ja-Mes Logan in the end zone for a touchdown.
    That score provided the Rebels the spark they needed to get it going offensively, and Ole Miss proceeded to rally off 35 unanswered points to seal the victory.
    By the time the dust settled, Wallace had compiled 268 yards and two touchdowns through the air to go along with a team-leading 82 yards and one score on the ground.
