By Parrish Alford Daily Journal OXFORD – Barring the unexpected, it looks like Ole Miss will have both of its top outside linebackers for this week against Vanderbilt. Serderius Bryant and Denzel Nkemdiche were both suspended in the off-season following misdemeanor arrests last January.

According to WJTV in Jackson, Tyriunce Lewis, the brother of Bulldogs senior wide receiver Jameon Lewis, was shot and killed in Tylertown on Sunday morning. Walthall County Sherriff Duane Dillon told WJTV that […]
