Leading the nation with eight interceptions is about being in the right place at the right time, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze says.

The Rebels have picked off eight passes this year, more than half of their 2013 total. Cornerbacks Mike Hilton and Senquez Golson, as well as Freeze, give a lot of credit to cornerbacks coach Jason Jones.

Also, a look at Ricky Stenhouse’s NASCAR promotional stop at Ole Miss. Freeze, who is liable to show up at concerts in Tupelo as well, is a big NASCAR fan and began a friendship with Stenhouse when he learned the Olive Branch native is an Ole Miss fan.

The primary reason for the visit was to encourage college students to take in the Geico 500 weekend at Talladega, but when I asked Stenhouse if he planned visits to any other area schools — Mississippi State or Memphis, perhaps — the response from a track representative talked about visits to Alabama and Auburn last year with different drivers and a planned visit to UAB coming up.
