Rebels Open Season with Home Contest vs. Florida
The Southeastern Conference announced a revised 2020 football schedule Monday that will see Ole Miss open league play September 26 against Florida at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
The September 26 opener will be the 25th all-time meeting between Ole Miss and Florida and the first time since 1948 that the two squads have met in a season opener. The Rebels lead the all-time series vs. the Gators 12-11-1.
After the season opener, the Rebels will travel to Lexington to square off against SEC East foe Kentucky (October 3). Ole Miss hosts Alabama (October 10) before hitting the road to take on Arkansas (October 17) in Fayetteville. The Rebels close out the month of October with a home contest vs. Auburn (October 24), followed by trip up north to face Vanderbilt (October 31).
Ole Miss will have an open date to begin November before playing host to South Carolina (November 14). The Rebels will battle Texas A&M (November 21) in College Station, Texas, prior to hosting Mississippi State (November 28) in the annual Battle for the Golden Egg. Ole Miss will wrap up its regular season with a road contest against defending national champions LSU (December 5).
The SEC Football Championship Game is scheduled to be played December 19 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, rescheduled from the original date of December 5.
Ticket information and other details surrounding attendance at 2020 Rebel home games will be announced soon.
In July, the SEC established the delayed start for its 2020 football season to allow its universities to focus on the healthy return of their campus communities and the gradual re-introduction of athletics, as the 14 members of the SEC continue to monitor developments related to COVID-19.
