Weekend Viewer Guide

Ole Miss athletic teams are playing all over campus this weekend. Go inside to see the schedule of events and what to watch for in each one.


Baseball Fall World Series at Swayze Field, 2:30 p.m.

The formerly named Pizza Bowl takes place this weekend with a two-out-of-three intrasquad contest where the winning club eats pizza while the losing squad runs. Seniors Thomas Flautt and Fuller Smith are team captains for the weekend. Coaches Reinstetle and Lafferty will make the decisions for the respective clubs.

Volleyball vs. Tennessee at the Gillom Center, 7 p.m.

The Rebels are 20-6 and 9-5 in the SEC with the West title still a possibility. The Volunteers are a traditional league power but are only 4-10 in conference play this season. An Ole Miss win would tie the school record for SEC victories and continue the team on its way to an NCAA invitation. All fans in attendance will receive free cotton candy, and kids will be admitted free with a paid adult ticket.

Soccer vs. Mississippi State at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium, 7 p.m.

It is the futbol version of the Egg Bowl with the Bulldogs visiting the Rebels to close out the regular season. Ole Miss can break a six-game winless streak and clinch an SEC Tournament berth with a victory. It is also senior night with six players being recognized including Chrissi Strini, Ole Miss' first soccer All-America selection.

Men's Basketball vs. Delta State at Tad Smith Coliseum, 7 p.m.

The defending SEC West co-champions take the floor for the first time this season against Division II Delta State. Florida transfer David Huertas makes his Rebel debut, and fans will get the chance to see the group of freshmen guards in place to take over for the departed backcourt players from last season. Fans will be admitted with a monetary or canned good donation.


Football vs. Northwestern State at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, 1 p.m.

The Rebels take on Ed Orgeron's alma mater in a much-needed break from SEC play. Ole Miss needs to relieve frustration and put the Demons away early. It is an excellent opportunity to score 30 points for the first time since 2004 at South Carolina.

Baseball Fall World Series at Swayze Field, 4:30 p.m.

The largest baseball crowd of the weekend will be Saturday following the football game and will get to see Cody Satterwhite for the first time this fall. The junior pitcher has been rested throughout the semester but will take the mound in the second game of the series.


Baseball Fall World Series at Swayze Field, 1 p.m.

It will be the last chance to see Ole Miss before Opening Day against Minnesota. Over the weekend, pay special attention to the battles at shortstop and catcher. Evan Button and Sean Stuyverson have been back and forth in the middle infield, while Brett Basham and Kyle Henson are battling for the backstop position.

Volleyball vs. Kentucky at the Gillom Center, 1:30 p.m.

The Rebels defeated the Wildcats in Lexington earlier this season. Lunch from Bofields will be available in the lobby before the game.

Women's Basketball vs. DT-3 at Tad Smith Colisem, 6 p.m.

Renee Ladner takes the floor for the first time as a head coach Sunday as Ole Miss plays DT-3 in an exhibition. The Rebels are having to replace All-America selection Armintie Price, but look for big things out of Alliesha Easley and starting point guard Shantell Black. Ole Miss finished last season with an Elite Eight finish and a 24-11 final record. Fans will be admitted with a monetary or canned good donation.
