OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - For just about every team in the
Southeastern Conference, there comes a stretch during the season
where the schedule looks nearly to impossible to navigate.
Mississippi is in the midst of it right now. Coach Houston Nutt
likes to call it "The Three A's" - as in No. 7 Alabama, No. 5
Auburn and No. 21 Arkansas - during a three-week span.
All three teams are ranked, and the Rebels lost 23-10 to Alabama
But they don't have any time to pout. Ole Miss (3-3, 1-2)
travels to face Arkansas (4-2, 1-2) this weekend in Fayetteville,
which is sure to be a hostile environment since Nutt will be
returning to the place he coached for a decade for only the second
Nutt has beaten his former school in the previous two meetings.
