Southeast Missouri State University (SEMO) travels to Oxford on Sept. 7 for what will surely be a blowout in front of the home crowd at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. SEMO, reigning from the Ohio Valley Conference of the Football Championship Subdivision (FBS), struggled to post a mere three wins in 2012. It wasn’t pretty, folks.

The three wins by the Redhawks last season came against Mars Hill, Tennessee Tech and Austin Peay.

It’s simply a financial visit for SEMO, as this one will be over before the Ole Miss students even get to the stadium.

Will the Rebel faithful be back in the Grove before halftime?

Not if Ole Miss Athletics Director (AD) Ross Bjork can find a way to keep them in the stands.

Michael Thompson, Senior Associate AD over Marketing and Communications, you now have several months to develop a marketing plan for this thriller. I wouldn’t bet against you, either.

Freeze will be able get a lot of young players quality playing time, which should pay dividends.

Way Too Early Prediciton:

Ole Miss 59, SEMO 13

Overall Record 2-0 (1-0 SEC)
