Ole Miss’ football team is going west.

It was announced today that the Rebels will be playing a home-and-home against the California Golden Bears later this decade. Ole Miss will play a game at Berkeley on Sept. 16, 2017, and the Golden Bears will travel to Oxford for a Sept. 21, 2019.

This will be the furthest west the Rebels have traveled to play a football game, surpassing the 2011 visit to Fresno, California. It will also mark the first meeting against a PAC-12 team in football.

Each SEC school is required to play a Power 5 opponent each year starting in the 2016 season. Some schools such as Florida, Georgia, Kentucky and South Carolina have natural in-state rivals that meet the requirement. The Rebels already have Florida State scheduled for 2016, Georgia Tech in 2022 and 2023 and Wake Forest for 2024 and 2025.
