While it may still be college football’s offseason for another few weeks, this is prime time for preseason hype videos — and Ole Miss is taking full advantage.
The school Tweeted a Game of Throne-style hype video on Sunday, just hours before the Emmy-winning show returns for its seventh season.

The Rebels get an ‘A’ for execution, but a ‘C-‘ for originality. As it turns out, Ohio State produced a nearly-identical hype video back in May.

Still, kudos to Ole Miss for capitalizing on the internet’s obsession with Game of Thrones.
The Rebels start their season against South Alabama on Sept. 2 at 7:30 p.m. ET. Until then, you can watch HBO’s Game of Thrones on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
