BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Mississippi quarterback Bo Wallace says first-year coach Hugh Freeze has pulled off a total makeover of the team's culture.
Freeze needs a win in Saturday's BBVA Compass Bowl against Pittsburgh and its first-year coach, Paul Chryst, to cap an unlikely turnaround from last season's 2-10 finish.
Ole Miss and Pitt bring 6-6 records into the game. Each team had important final regular-season wins to become bowl-eligible.
The Rebels beat in-state rival Mississippi State for their first Egg Bowl win in four years. The Panthers closed with back-to-back wins over No. 21 Rutgers and South Florida.
Pitt is playing in its third straight BBVA Compass Bowl. The Panthers beat Kentucky two years ago and lost to SMU last season.
