Freeze guides Mississippi to quick turnaround

Tools

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Hugh Freeze is working his turnaround magic again — this time in the Southeastern Conference.

The unlikely major college head coach, who was leading a high school program less than a decade ago and cobbled together the bulk of his offense by watching college games on his couch, has Mississippi competitive in the SEC and just one win from bowl eligibility.

Ole Miss (5-3, 2-2 SEC) will be about a two-touchdown underdog when it visits No. 7 Georgia (7-1, 5-1) on Saturday, but both sides expect the game to be competitive. That's hard to believe considering the Rebels were in the midst of an embarrassing 16-game SEC losing streak less than a month ago.

But Ole Miss has broken through with two SEC wins over the past three weeks.
