ATLANTA (WLOX) -
After the bowl games were announced, way back when, the Peach bowl was projected to be one of the more exciting match ups sending No. 6 TCU against No. 9 Ole Miss.
The game pitted TCU's high octane offensive attack, one of the most explosive units in all of college football going up against the Ole Miss Landshark defense, one that ranked first in the nation by giving up only 13.8 points per game.
Instead of a down-to-the wire nail biter, TCU routed the Rebels from start to finish and game turned into a bitter Peach Bowl for Rebels fans.
The Horned Frogs wanted to make a statement and they did just that behind quarterback Trevone Boykin who completed 22 of 31 passes for 187 yards, three touchdowns. It could have been worse but the Horned Frogs tossed three interceptions and lost a fumble.
How bad was it for Ole Miss in the first half? The Rebels generated only four first downs and 59 yards.
Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace has carried the label of "Bad Bo" or "Good Bo" and on Wednesday Bad Bo was dominate in the loss.
The senior completed only 10 of 23 passes for 109 yards and three interceptions. It wasn't all his fault, he was sacked five times in the first half.
Ole Miss generated only 129 total yards offensively and only 9 rushing yards. TCU piled up 423 yards getting the job done on the offensive side of the football. The Horned Frogs defense took some exception to listening to the media talk about the Rebels Landshark defense and they put the bite on the Ole Miss offense.
Ole Miss fell to 9 and 4 and ended the season losing four of its last six games.
Coach Hugh Freeze said,"We all are partial to our kids and we believe they deserve to given an adequate representation and I feel like I let them down in getting them ready for it. There's a valuable lesson to be learned from today and the way we prepared. Got to go back and look at all of that and the things that I need to do different to make sure our kids put forth their best on a day like today."
Ole Miss left tackle Laremy Tunsil fractured his fibula and was carted off the field late in the first half.
Rebel fans are feeling down right now but with so much talent returning, especially on defense, Ole Miss should be back in the hunt in the SEC West Division in 2015.
Coach Freeze will concentrate on recruiting and must make a decision on JUCO quarterback Chad Kelly who got into trouble in his hometown in Buffalo last week.
