OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Bo Wallace noticed it on Monday when he made the short walk to his morning classes.
A few more students stopped him to offer encouragement. There were a few more handshakes. A few more pats on the back.
The 6-foot-4, 204-pound sophomore has become an overnight celebrity on the Ole Miss campus. That's what happens when a fancy new offense from first-year coach Hugh Freeze - led by Wallace's laser sharp passing accuracy - pushes a win-starved football program to two straight victories.
Freeze is obviously pleased with the success. But he also warns that the Rebels have much greater challenges ahead.
After two weeks of beating up on Central Arkansas and UTEP, Ole Miss will host No. 14 Texas on Saturday.
