Who wants to see Hugh Freeze do the worm?

The fourteenth and final installment of Ole Miss' docu-series "The Season" is excellent, as always. This episode picks up at the tail end of the Egg Bowl on Thanksgiving night, as the Rebels collide in an emotional, hard-fought battle with intrastate rival Mississippi State. Ole Miss came up short that night in Starkville, 17-10 in overtime after quarterback Bo Wallace, charging toward the end zone, fumbled and the Bulldogs recovered to seal the game.

Ole Miss was, understandably, heartbroken.

"The Season" then moves on to the Rebels' trip to Nashville for the Music City Bowl and all the festivities surrounding bowl week. On game day, the video provides an up-close, behind-the-scenes look at the Rebels' 25-17 defeat of Georgia Tech to close the year. Following the win, head coach Hugh Freeze addressed a jubilant locker room, then lifts a prayer to the heavens and - much to the the delight of his players and, let's be honest, the reason you're reading this article right now - throws himself to the ground in an attempt at the worm.

Well done, coach.
