10 Things To Do in Atlanta, Ga.

There’s no doubt that Rebel fans love to travel, especially if Ole Miss football is the key event!  So, as the fan-base packs up and heads to Atlanta next week for the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game against Boise State, here are ten more attractions to round out this Labor Day weekend and the official start to the 2014 football season!

College Football Hall of Fame

1. Visit the College Football Hall of Fame in downtown Atlanta. The Hall of Fame is set to host their Grand Opening on August 23, so Rebel fans will be some of the first visitors next week. The CFH is 94,000 square-feet, features a 45-yeard indoor football field, and showcases eight Rebel footballers: Jake Gibbs, Bruiser Kinard, Archie Manning, Coach Johnny Vaught, Parker “Bullet” Hall, Charlie Flowers, Charlie Conerly, and Barney Pool. Visit for more information about the museum.
2. Get immersed in the Chick-Fil-A Why We Love College Football Fan Experience.
