OXFORD, Miss. -- A big chunk of Mississippi stars power from last season is gone, off to the NFL after helping push the program into the upper tier of the Southeastern Conference.But the Rebels who remain are pretty good, too.And thats exactly the reason Ole Miss feels it can be even better than last season, when the team won 10 games and took home the Sugar Bowl trophy for the first time since 1970.But players and coaches say there is plenty more to prove for a program that hasnt won a Southeastern Conference title since 1963.We could talk a long time on that one, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said. I assure you theres motivation.The Rebels do have one legitimate star still on the roster. Senior quarterback Chad Kelly is viewed as a long-shot Heisman Trophy candidate after throwing for more than 4,000 yards and running for 500 more in his first season as the teams starter.But Ole Miss must replace standouts like offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, receiver Laquon Treadwell and defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, who were all selected in the first round of the NFL draft in April.Freeze is confident in the internal replacements.Freshman left tackle Greg Little was one of the nations top recruits last season -- though he may not start right away. Receivers Damoreea Stringfellow and Quincy Adeboyejo, along with tight end Evan Engram, are back after being important parts of last years passing game. And veteran defensive linemen like Fadol Brown, Marquis Haynes and D.J. Jones -- along with the arrival of touted freshman Benito Jones -- could make the Rebels even deeper at that spot this season.Ole Miss needs to be ready right away. The Rebels have a brutal September schedule that starts with a neutral site game against Florida State on Sept. 5 in Orlando. There are also back-to-back home games against Alabama and Georgia later in the month.Ive never been on a staff that faced a September quite like what were facing, Freeze said. Its not hard to motivate our kids. They understand whats in front of them, so thats a positive.Here are a few things to watch for the Rebels this season:KEEP MOVING UP: Freeze is in his fifth season has improved the program by one win each season. The Rebels had a 7-6 record in 2012 before eight wins in 13, nine wins in 14 and finally 10 last season. Considering the Rebels difficult schedule, 11 wins in 2016 would be quite a feat.PATTERSON IN WAITING: Kelly will run the show at quarterback this season, but the Rebels hope his eventual replacement will be just as good. Freshman Shea Patterson was one of the nations top quarterback recruits and both Freeze and Kelly have raved about his quick release and ability to learn the playbook.NCAA DISTRACTION: Ole Miss might be good on the field, but a four-year NCAA investigation into the athletic program, including football, continues to fester. Freeze and the players say the investigation wont be a distraction but its certainly something to watch if big news happens in the case during mid-season.CONNERS BACK: The Ole Miss defense is welcoming the return of senior safety Tony Conner, who missed a big chunk of last season because of a knee injury. Conner had 69 tackles, which ranked second on the team, as a sophomore in 2014.TRYING FOR BALANCE: Ole Miss was one of the nations elite passing teams last season, but sometimes struggled to run the ball. The Rebels hope a combo of veterans like Jordan Wilkins and Akeem Judd can help the team improve after averaging 183 yards on the ground last season, which ranked 7th in the SEC.KEY GAMES: If Ole Miss can get past its difficult September schedule, there are still a lot of tough games, including back-to-back road trips to Arkansas and LSU in October. And, of course, theres always the Egg Bowl against rival Mississippi State on Nov. 26.PREDICTION: Ole Miss is good, but the schedule is nasty and its hard to see a scenario where the Rebels are able to roll through September unscathed. Look for Ole Miss to win a few big games and lose a few, too, putting them in the middle of the pack in the SECs Western Division.SEASON OPENER: A neutral site game against Florida State in Orlando on Sept. 5.-----Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP-----AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Matt Calvert Jersey . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others.

NEW YORK -- The road to success for Tyler Chatwood is pitching on the road.The Colorado right-hander hasnt lost away from Coors Field in 13 starts since July 2013, and he has an idea why that may be.Chatwood threw seven innings of three-hit ball, Carlos Gonzalez homered and drove in four runs and the Rockies defeated the New York Mets 6-1 Friday night for their fourth straight victory.Mark Reynolds homered and Charlie Blackmon had four hits for the surging Rockies.

The 26-year-old is 4-6 with a 5.69 ERA at home.I know my two-seamers got a little more depth on the road, which is big for me. Thats the pitch I throw the most, so I think it helps to have that, Chatwood said. Overall I think its just executing pitches and I havent executed a lot at home.Gonzalez matched a season-high hitting streak of 11 games with an RBI double in the first. He hit a 448-foot, three-run drive in the ninth for his 21st homer off Antonio Bastardo.He threw me six straight sliders and the one that he missed over the plate was the one I hit over the fence, Gonzalez said. Those are the pitches that weve got to hit and I was ready for it.Steven Matz (8-7) gave up two runs and 10 hits in six innings.James Loney homered for the Mets. Alejandro De Aza had another kind of hit -- he had a pinch-single in the eighth, and later was running to third when he was grazed in the helmet by the shattered barrel of Travis dArnauds bat.Down 3-1, the Mets got a pair of singles to start the eighth off Jake McGee. Scott Oberg relieved and retired the next three batters on just three pitches. The Mets are the majors worst hitting team with runners in scoring position.We are going through a rough time right now. We havent hit with runners in scoring position. Everybody knows it, Mets manager Terry Collins said. We have to quit rubbing their faces in it every day. We have to lighten it up a little bit.Nick Huundleys RBI single in the sixth put Colorado ahead for good at 2-1.ddddddddddddHALL OF FAME WELCOMEThe Mets started a weekend-long tribute to Hall of Famer Mike Piazza, handing out replica jerseys to all fans.

Thats the biggest reason why were playing well. When you get good starting pitching everything else falls into place.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: OF Ryan Rayburn was a late scratch from the starting lineup after bruising his left knee in batting practice. I think an overthrow when pitchers were doing their throwing program down the line. One got away and hit Raburn right in the knee so it swelled up pretty good, Weiss said. ...
