Good morning, Ole Miss fans!
The bye week is in full force for the Rebels, and coach Hugh Freeze told reporters that they’ll spend the time focusing on themselves before concentrating on the Nov. 21 showdown against LSU next week.
Here are two things to know:
- Speaking of that rivalry tilt against the Tigers, the game will kickoff at 3:30 p.m. ET in Oxford, the SEC announced Monday. It will be televised on CBS.
- Following the loss to Arkansas, Ole Miss dropped to No. 5 in this week’s SEC Country power poll. It’s safe to say the voters understood the fluky nature of the loss.
