Historical Notes:

  • Famous Ole Miss alumni include Carolyn Haines and Gerald McRaney. Give us some more down in the comments.
  • Ole Miss has a complex mascot history:

What To Watch For:

  • SHOULDER TO FLY ON. Calazada just added more lore to the legend Saturday after going to the tent, popping his shoulder back into place like Riggs, and closing out the damn game. He may be held together with duct tape and baling wire, but he’s our QB and this team loves him for it.
  • GAME DAY. Lee, Kirk, Rece, Desmond, and crew will be in Oxford on Saturday. Time to throw a tantrum about this somehow being a perceived slight!
  • OK CORRAL- The Ole Miss QB is cut from a cloth not too dissimilar from the Auburn QB, only with more polished passing skills.

Media Blitz:

  • Venue: Vaught Hemingway Stadium
  • Game Time: 6:00 pm Saturday
  • Station: ESPN

Weather:

  • Cold and cloudy (high 48, low 31).
