a 3-5 conference record but having gone undefeated outside of the conference remained bowl eligible with an 8-5 record. The
Rebels capped off a successful season with a 25-17 victory over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets out of the ACC in the Franklin
America Mortgage Music City Bowl. Hopes are high for the Rebels this season as they are coming off a solid spring of practices
and a nice showing in their annual spring game. The Rebels are looking for big things from running back Mark Dodson this coming
season, and the spring game only confirmed that Dodson is a versatile player that can gain chunks of yardage on the ground
and catch passes out of the backfield as well. Dodson turned a screen pass into a 45-yard gain in the spring game and has
some other big players that have fans excited to see what he can do in the regular season. The Rebels are looking forward
to some big games at home this season.

Tide will pay them a visit. Alabama is one of the best programs in the entire country when it comes to college football, and
the Rebels are going to have to play their best in an effort to pull off the upset. The Tide have some of the top players
in the nation each and every season, and it would be huge if the Rebels earned the victory in this contest.
top team to come to Oxford this season will be the Auburn Tigers, who arrive on November 1st. The Tigers are fresh off a 2013
season in which they made it to the National Title Game, and they look to be a strong squad yet again in 2014. It should be
great to see these two teams go at it on the field this season.
