Next season, Ole Miss will step on the gridiron against UConn in a home-and-home series that was announced by the university on Thursday.

The Rebels will play the UConn Huskies on Oct. 24, 2020. Originally, Ole Miss was scheduled to face a matchup against Middle Tennessee. The Rebels and Blue Raiders will now face off on Sept. 7, 2024, in a home contest for Ole Miss.

When these two programs face-off, it will be the first-ever meeting on the gridiron.

Ole Miss has also agreed to a home-and-home series partnership with Purdue beginning in 2033.

The Big Ten opponent visits Ole Miss in 2033, followed by a rematch the following season as the Rebels make the trip to West Lafayette, Indiana, in 2034.

Purdue and Ole Miss have only faced each other once with a 27-7 Boilermaker victory in Lafayette, Indiana, in 1929. The last present-day Big Ten school to visit Oxford was in 1952 when the Rebels defeated Maryland, 21-14, at Hemingway Stadium.
