Happy Thursday, Ole Miss fans.
The Magnolia Bowl is just two days away, and a host of Ole Miss players are getting ready to play their last game in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. LSU coach Les Miles criticized the atmosphere in Oxford, Miss., on Wednesday, so the Rebels faithful are bound to give it their all and make it a tough environment to play in.
Here are three things to know:
- Ole Miss senior linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche remained in an Oxford hospital Wednesday evening, according to a report. Coach Hugh Freeze said Nkemdiche is questionable for Saturday’s contest.
- Saturday will not only be the last game for the Rebels seniors, but it will also likely be the last home game for defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, who are all expected to declare for the NFL draft following the season.
- Ole Miss’ Forward Together campaign reached its goal of $150 million, so Vaught-Hemingway Stadium will see a number of improvements next season, including a bowled north end zone.
