No. 22 Ole Miss soccer continued its push to the regular season with its first and only exhibition match Saturday, and came out on top, 2-0, over SMU at Westcott Field.

More than 12 hours after the original start time due to inclement weather Friday evening, the Rebels jumped out to a 2-0 lead early and held on throughout the full 90 minutes against the Mustangs.

Senior Gretchen Harknett and sophomore CeCe Kizer were credited with the scoring for Ole Miss, as senior Addie Forbus provided the helper to Harknett in the first goal of the day.

On the defensive end, goalkeeper Marnie Merritt was solid in goal with five saves, while Madi Killeen tallied six saves after entering as a sub in the second half.

The Rebels will open the 2016 regular season Friday, Aug. 19, at 6 p.m. against Louisiana-Lafayette at home. Ole Miss will host four-straight matches in Oxford to kick off the season, and will play seven total home matches within the first month of play.

Tournaments in Hawaii, Mexico and Puerto Rico highlight the 2016-17 Ole Miss men’s golf schedule head coach Chris Malloy announced Tuesday.

The schedule, which features 11 regular-season tournaments plus the SEC Championships, tees off Sept. 12 at the two-day Ocean Course Invitational in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. The Rebels then hit the road to Nashville, Tennessee Sept. 18-20 for The Grove Intercollegiate.

“We are extremely excited to get the season started and play against the best teams in the nation,” Malloy said. “I am excited about this group of young men and we are going to find out how good we are right away in the start of the fall season. We start out at Kiawah Island Ocean course, host of a Ryder Cup and PGA Championship. This is one of the most challenging courses in the world. Mix that in with courses all across North America and we feel that we have one of the better schedules of any team in the country.”

Ole Miss continues its fall slate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with the Marquette Intercollegiate Oct. 2-3, followed by a trip to Atlanta, Georgia for the Auto Trader Intercollegiate October 17-18. The Rebel returns to Kauai, Hawaii to close out the fall campaign at the Princeville Warrior Invitational October 30-November 1.

The Rebels start up spring play with another visit out of the continental United States to Puerto Rico February 19-21 for the Puerto Rico Classic. Ole Miss makes back-to-back trips to the west coast, where they will compete in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for the Querencia Cabo Collegiate February 26-28 and to San Diego, California for the Lamkin San Diego Classic March 13-14.

Ole Miss closes out the regular season with the Hootie at Bulls Bay tournament March 26-28 in Charleston, South Carolina, the Old Waverly Invitational April 6-7 in West Point, Mississippi and the Ryman Hospitality Intercollegiate April 10-11 in Nashville, Tennessee.

“When making this schedule, we wanted to test ourselves against the nation’s best programs and on the best golf courses we could find,” Malloy said. “I think that we have accomplished that. Now it’s time to go out and get the job done.”

The SEC Championships will take place at Sea Island, Georgia, April 21-23, while NCAA Regionals are set for May 14-16 at various host sites. The 2017 NCAA Championships will take place Rich harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Illinois.

Is Ole Miss facing an overrated Florida State?

When Ole Miss and Florida State play some primetime Labor Day college football action, one of them will be limping into the season opener.

It will then be nine months after the fact, but the Seminoles aren’t exactly strutting into the 2016 season with the way 2015 ended, a 38-24 loss to Houston in the Peach Bowl.

Ole Miss, on the other hand, despite losing three first-round picks afterwards, is coming off a huge Sugar Bowl win and is facing one of the most anticipated seasons in school history.

Unlike most SEC teams, the Rebels have their quarterback in Heisman contender Chad Kelly. Florida State has its guy, too, but it hasn’t decided on him yet.

Even if redshirt senior Sean Maquire beats out redshirt freshman Deondre Francois, does the way Maquire ended the season and the questions Florida State has on offense warrant being No. 4 in the first Coaches Poll?
