Ole Miss gearing up for opener
Ole Miss Athletics Director Pete Boone announced May 13, 2010 the scheduling of the school’s first football meeting with Boise State University, set for Sept. 3, 2011 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford.
The game will serve as the Rebels’ 2011 season opener. Boise State is the nation’s winningest team since 1999 and boasts two undefeated seasons in the past four years.
“We have been strengthening our non-conference schedule, and we certainly want to thank ESPN for helping make this possible,” Boone said. “Boise State has a great tradition in football, and Coach Chris Petersen has built the Broncos into a national power. I expect a great deal of anticipation from our fans.”
