Ole Miss announced its 2015 football schedule Tuesday evening, after the Southeastern Conference unveiled the full league slate for next season.
The Rebels begin next season with back-to-back home games against UT Martin (Sept. 5) and Fresno State (Sept. 12) before kicking off league play in Tuscaloosa against the Alabama Crimson Tide (Sept. 19).
A matchup with Vanderbilt marks the SEC home opener on Sept. 26, while the Rebels also host SEC foes Texas A&M (Oct. 24), Arkansas (Nov. 7) and LSU (Nov. 21). League games on the road include Florida (Oct. 3), Auburn (Oct. 31) and Mississippi State (Nov. 28).
The other non-conference outings include a home game against New Mexico State (Oct. 10) and a return trip to Memphis (Oct. 17).
Each SEC team plays eight conference football games to include six games against division opponents and two games against non-division opponents. One of the non-division opponents is a permanent annual opponent and the other non-division opponent rotates each year.
The SEC announced in May the format for future football scheduling beginning in 2016 that will be a continuation of the existing format and adds a strength-of-schedule component that requires all schools to play an ACC, Big 12, Big Ten or Pac-12 opponent on an annual basis.
For the 24th consecutive year, the 2015 season will culminate with the SEC Championship Game on Saturday, December 6 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
The complete list of 2015 football schedules can be found on the SEC’s official website, SECsports.com.
