Historic victory triggers celebration on Field, at Square, in State, through Universe
When you love a team, a school and a family as much as the Rebel Nation loves Ole Miss, you don’t cry when they lose, you cry after a historic win. So, the question is: Were there tears of joy in Oxford on Saturday evening? You better believe it. And so it goes. And so it lives. And so it is.
Down by a score with just over six minutes to play, the offense, defense and special teams converged into a triune force and Ole Miss football was reborn. A statement drive led by highly criticized signal caller Bo Wallace to tie the game. A fumble recovery by Kailo Moore on the ensuing kickoff leading to the go ahead score. A sealed with a kiss interception by defensive back Senquez Golson.
“This isn’t the end of it all,” wide receiver Laquon Treadwell told reporters after the historic victory. “The is just the beginning.”

In the wake of a 23-17 win over No.1 Alabama, the celebration continues and the goal post takes a tour of Oxford.
Superstar singer Katy Perry was asked to be the guest picker on ESPN College GameDay, and she was the only one to pick the Ole Miss Rebels to beat the Alabama Crimson Tide. You gotta give it to her, she got it right, and tonight’s all about celebration!
Here’s Katy chugging a beer and stage diving at Funkys on the Oxford, Mississippi Square. Are you telling me you don’t wish it was you?!?
