Big wins in Post Vaught Era

Here’s some quick research this morning with a look at Ole Miss wins against ranked opponents in the post-John Vaught Era.

This is not all the wins, just the bigger ones.

They all have their own meaning, and I suspect different individuals place a different value on each one for different reasons.

I am not ranking them so to speak, just listing them.

Tell me which ones standout most for you and why.
