OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- It is now two months and nine games into Bo Wallace's first season in the Southeastern Conference.
The Mississippi quarterback has the bruises -- on his body and his ego -- to prove it.
Ole Miss (5-4, 2-3 SEC) has been a little better than expected so far this season as it prepares for a home game against Vanderbilt (5-4, 3-3) on Saturday. One team will leave Vaught-Hemingway Stadium with bowl eligibility in hand.
But the Rebels had a bit of a reality check last weekend in a 37-10 loss to No. 7 Georgia. They actually jumped out to a 10-0 lead, but the Bulldogs roared back with 37 points.
It was one the first times all season the Rebels looked like the hapless doormat many expected them to be.
